Overview:

I have taught Elem./Secondary Music for 28 yrs in IA & CO. During this same time, I started teaching private piano lessons a year prior - so 29 years. I also served as Colorado (CMEA) State Chair of Elem. General Music and directed award-winning children's choirs, even piloting and hosting various regional honor choral music festivals along the way. I am church organist at St. John's Episcopal Church - New Castle and First United Methodist Church - Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I play piano at various venues across the state of Colorado and the country, have recorded 6 cd's of piano music and love giving lessons to students who are excited to learn.

EXPERIENCE

I started teaching private piano 1991 and have taught over 200 private students since starting. I have taught K-12 music in public schools since 1991. My student ages have run from 3 to 66+. As I am retiring at the end of this present school year, I am expanding my times available for private students - piano, keyboard, ukulele, guitar and all brass instruments are welcome. My curriculum spans many styles of music, based on the needs and desires of the student, but also preparing the student for musicianship in any situation.

METHODS USED

Whatever instrument private studies we are working on, a balanced approach of performance, literature, theory and technique is studied. Once the groundwork is established, we even work through composition on their chosen instrument. Students work at their own pace. I have some students who move quite swiftly through their levels and that is great. Others may need more time and that is fine. I do find that students who utilize regular and purposeful home practice will tend to get through levels a fair amount quicker.

LESSON STYLE

Jeff loves teaching music, and about music. It allows him to see music through a fresh, young set of eyes. Private lessons allow teacher and student to connect and really focus and fine tune the student's goals and abilities in a manner which makes forward progress possible. Finding what makes each individual student click allows us to tailor the approach to a more efficient path toward their success. While a basic approach of literature, theory, performance and technique is utilized, it is helpful to collaborate on developing together a satisfactory goal and pathway to get there. Understanding the importance of practice is a key element in student progress as well.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
