This guy is THE MAN! Since starting lessons with Mike about 1/2 year ago, I've come to know him as a professional instructor that clearly has a passion for teaching, and knows how to make guitar lessons enjoyable. Giving positive reinforcement when it is due, Mike's lessons are a blast, and they encourage me to practice at home. In addition to playing the acoustic guitar, we talk musical theory and history and how it motivates us to play the music we play. Pick Mike to be your instructor and you will acquire a proper teacher and a good friend. Cheers, Pete

I found Catherine in search for someone to help me with Colorado All-State Choir auditions as well as my college auditions to major in Musical Theatre. I've worked with her throughout the school year, and am still a student, and I couldn't be more thankful. She puts things in terms that work for each individual and is incredibly personable. I not only made the All-State choir, but also will be attending my top choice school in New York City. I love working with her, and would definitely recommend her as a teacher, no matter what level one walks in at.

Catherine is such a beautiful person who made me feel so welcome and comfortable taking voice lessons for the first time. She is very knowledgable about her craft, and helped me gain the confidence and skills to break out of my comfort zone and sing with other musicians :) I would highly recommend Catherine especially if you are interested in exploring jazz, an area in which she has a lot of experience to offer.

I hired Gary to play for a cabaret I was doing at the Stanley Hotel! It wasn't last minute but it was a short turn around. He was so professional and knocked it out of the park. From a performer standpoint he followed, took direction and was profecient in all styles of music. I have hired him to do another cabaret event this year and cannot wait to have a wonderful night of music!!

It is an honor to be a student of Windham Hill recording artist, Gary Schmidt. His artistry and original compositions on his latest recording release, Landscapes of the Heart, truly touch the heart. His calm patience and love of music as my teacher provide me with clarity, direction and confidence as I develop the skills and techniques needed to play music from my heart.

As an adult intermediate level student, Jerimiah Owens approached me with grace, respect and an appreciation for who I was as a musician. He quickly assessed my abilities and had no pre-conceived ideas about how it should be . He tailored his approach to me, not a method, and was more than eager to engage me immediately in technique and musicality. I left each lesson feeling a sense of accomplishment and an eagerness to continue to improve my piano playing. He is personable, friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and punctual. Of course he is a top-notch professional musician in his own right, and knows how to communicate and share his knowledge and exceptional skills with ease and comfort. I was happy and honored to have worked with him, and ended my lessons only because of life changes that precluded us continuing. I recommend Jerimiah highly to anyone-beginner to advanced, youth to adult learner—he is a good communicator, teacher, and a good man.

I have been taking lessons from Jerimiah since August 2016. He has a wonderfully welcoming and positive attitude, which makes his studio a stress-free environment to improve your playing and challenge yourself. He is very accommodating of students' busy schedules, and is always responsive to text and email. He is very attentive to individual students' goals, and is proficient in a diverse repertoire from musical theater to jazz to classical, both for piano and vocals. He puts on seasonal recitals for his students, which is helpful for student goal-setting and performance confidence. I would recommend Jerimiah to vocal and piano students of any age or skill level. -Dan N.

Jerimiah is an amazing piano teacher - get hold of him while you can! He is a very talented musician and brings great insight into every phrase of the music I've studied with him and he combines that with a friendly and approachable manner. Certainly the best piano teacher I could have hoped to find in Colorado and I hope to continue studying with him into the future.

I saw David Brooks play at little bears and was amazed at how great he played. If only I had more free time to go hear him play. He is so comical and such a great singer as well as guitar player.. If he would teach guitar, I'd be the first person to sign up and learn.

When I first phone interviewed Allie she seemed very knowledgeable, professional, and structured in her approach... everything I was looking for for my 14 year old daughter who is looking to discover the limits of her vocal talents. My expectations have been wildly exceeded. Not only is Allie an amazing vocalist and musician, she is one of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Most importantly, (and I mean this to resonate with anyone who has a teenage daughter), Allie is a wonderful role model... my daughter looks forward to every minute she spends with Allie, and works hard every day on the exercises Allie prescribes. Can't say enough about Allie, best money I've ever spent.

I've been blown away by my lessons with Allie. I've never known a voice teacher so intuitive and inspiring. She is not only addressing the specific goals I have defined for myself, but she has brought so much more depth to the lessons than I thought I could ask for in a teacher. Highly recommend her for any singer-songwriters out there.

If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.

I've been working with Justina Shandler for around three years now, and she is one of the strongest songwriters I have ever had the pleasure of listening to and working with. I have never known a musician who focuses so in depth on the lyrical content of theirs. Justina makes sure that every single word she puts into a song is as powerful as possible, with songs that I have seen people brought to tears by (myself included). As a teacher, Justina focuses directly on each student and creates an individual teaching method. She took me under her wing during my Freshman year at the University of Miami (I am now entering my senior year), and I can say with full confidence that I would not be the musician I am today without her guidance and support. She gives in-depth, concrete critiques that will take your writing to another level while also creating a warm and trusting environment. I have gone to her for musical advice as well as life advice and always left feeling like I gained something from it. Love this girl!

We had a last minute cancellation of our wedding day musicians and Peter and his partner were able to step in and they did an absolutely amazing job! Our ceremony was in Leadville, CO in the old synagogue and it was only the 2nd wedding to be held there since 1900. I could not have asked for better musicians to help make our day special. Everyone loved the music and they were able to improvise where needed to everyone's delight.

The Steve Manshel Band was the absolute best. We hired them to play our wedding reception, but this isn't a wedding band - they are a true band. Their live show was so much fun! We had one goal for our wedding reception and that was for everyone to dance. Steve was able to get everyone up and dancing. I mean EVERYONE! He handed out cowbells, tambourines, and worked the crowded to everyone's delight. This band doesn't just play the usual repertoire of lame wedding songs, they surprise you with great songs and play them with 110% of their heart. Steve was able to read the crowd and played something for everyone. Their skill as musicians allowed them to take the songs they played to new limits as they rocked out the evening. They handled everything in regards to the music and entertainment for the evening and were flexible in dealing with the limited space of the venue, which was completely stress free for us. People tell us all the time that our reception was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to. This was because of the Steve Manshel Band. They will not disappoint.

We at The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter have been very fortunate to have had Steve Manshel as a part of our family for many years. He has brought his incomparable musical talents, sunny personality and big heart to many of our events, fundraisers and galas. Most recently, Steve performed as the Master of Ceremonies and Live Auctioneer at our organization’s 20th Anniversary Celebration where he helped raise many thousands of dollars to benefit people with ALS throughout Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. Steve is a man of many talents, wonderful entertainer and fundraiser, but most of all, a really good friend to The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter. Sincerely, Pamela Rush-Negri, CEO The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter

Warning! Only hire Steve Manshel if you want you and your guests to have a great time! Don't blame me if the dance floor gets crowded and people get sweaty dancing. There is a danger that people who shouldn't be dancing still will! Hire him at your own risk!

Bob and the Dr played with four other band members for a private party in Parker last night. Wow! The first set transported me to the Village Vanguard as we listened to Miles Davis and other great jazz. Each musician is supremely talented,in their own right, but the real alchemy occurs when then blend. .. amazing performance by all, with an encode of Spooky that left all clamoring for more. Can't say enough about the music, the arrangements, Bob Neuwoehner's original compositions. The evening was a huge success, and Blue Stone Mojo was an integral part of that. Bring these gifted pros to your event, you will be glad you did. Eric Zelt, Parker CO.

Blue Stone Mojo came to our house and did a private concert for my husband's 59th birthday -- they played outside on the deck and everyone loved 'em! Great music of our time, some of their own originals, and fun blues. They are terrific and easy to work with. They were on time, even though the weather was abhorrent.. They were not terribly expensive, and I felt they were worth every penny. I hightly recommend this group.

Hannah Joy is an excellent piano teacher for my two children. She is an extremely talented musician with a wealth of academic and performance experience in both piano and voice. She brings her personal experience with learning and practicing piano as a child to bear, which the kids appreciate and can relate to. She is patient, yet expects the kids to respect the hard work it takes to learn the new language of music. She makes lessons fun, paces the learning well, understands the differences between each child and their abilities and personalities, and tailors lessons to the child. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for high quality piano lessons for their children. We feel lucky that she will be staying in Boulder to complete her graduate work in music education!

Hannah Joy is a competent, warm and engaging piano teacher. As an adult student with a great deal of musical training (but no piano), I was concerned. She did a great job of "diagnosing" where to start: helped me focus on learning to read the bass clef, and then providing me with assignments that were fun, rewarding and accessible - while quickly stretching me. I also am in relationship with the parent of one of her teenage students, and have heard exceptional feedback. This gal had shown next to no interest when studying with her previous teacher, but caught fire under Hannah Joy's direction. I believe Hannah Joy is the perfect blend of structured and flexible, informed but accessible. A great choice for either kids or adults.

Hannah Joy has been my daughter's teacher for two years. My daughter looks forward to lessons and practicing and has developed by leaps and bounds as a musician under Hannah Joy's guidance. Hannah Joy engages my daughter in choosing pieces to learn that are across musical genres. Hannah Joy brings a sense of play to lessons and provides direct, clear, and helpful feedback. We give Hannah Joy our highest recommendation, without reservations.

As an adult learner I was nervous to get back into piano but Sarah put my mind at ease right away. I have never had a teacher be so attentive to my personal learning style, skills and interests. From the beginning she used several techniques to help me determine my goals, current skills and then was clear about how we can work together to meet those goals. She has helped me stay accountable to my goals in a kind and encouraging way and uses many different teaching styles to help the information stick. I would highly recommend Sarah for all types of learners, as she is a versatile, fun, creative, and dynamic teacher. Additionally, she is an amazing musician and has a thorough knowledge of music theory and technique. I feel thankful to be working with such a skilled musician who is able to make you feel accomplished/successful regardless of the skill level you begin with.

Sarah is an excellent piano instructor. She not only knows her stuff, but she does a great job explaining it to me in a way that makes sense. I was nervous at first about trying to get back into music, but Sarah quickly figured out what I already knew and started introducing new material right at my level. She puts a lot of work into planning lessons ahead of time that meet my needs and personal goals. Would definitely recommend this studio to any adult student!

We have had the pleasure of Lark Song's Jennifer (flute) and Rebecca (harp) play for several of our gallery events. They have also been featured musicians at various other local arts events that our artists have attended. Their renditions of light classical pieces, American, English and Irish traditional folk songs and songs from musical theater are always a delight to simply sit and listen to, or to have as unobtrusive background music which allows for conversation at intimate social events. We have found them reliable, easy to work with and their services reasonably priced and therefore wholeheartedly recommend them.

He provided us with exactly what we wanted and helped take any stress out of the ceremony music planning part of the wedding.

Rick is an amazing guitar instructor. I have a child that started with Rick when he was 5 and is now 7. I truly believe my son has done well due to Rick’s style. Rick is relaxed, yet highly talented. Rick was able to keep my child engaged and make guitar practice fun. Rick was also able to instruct me on how to handle my child when he was pushing back on lessons. Rick turned a bad situation into a good one, and now my child can’t wait to get home to play his guitar. My child can even read music now, due to Rick’s instruction. Rick has group lessons for the children. The kids also get to play their music at a coffee shop for the public to see! My child in kindergarten was able to get up in front of approximately 300 people at his school and play. Rick is an amazing guitarist and I can see that he is creating a musician in my child. I strongly recommend Rick as a guitar instructor.

Our son has been taking classical guitar lessons from Rick Pruitt for almost four years now. One of the things we most appreciate about Rick is the positive way in which he relates to his students. In both group and individual lessons, Rick really engages with the kids to encourage them in their love of the instrument. During the year, he provides multiple opportunities to perform at coffee shop recitals which are a wonderful and inviting way to both develop and improve performance skills. We would highly recommend Rick as a guitar instructor.

Haley scored my past 2 films. Her musical knowledge is strong by itself, but what set her apart from everyone else was her versatility and ability to score for any situation I threw at her. One film was a quick witted comedy, the other was a dramatic sci fi thriller, that has gone on to be selected in one festival so far, and is pending others. She crafted the songs after extensive intellectual conversations with me about the themes of the films. We shared a belief that scoring can never be random, and the sound track must reflect the deeper meaning of the work. She had a lot of insight to offer during these conversations. The scores enhanced the final product for sure. Great work ethic, great person, and great music! Thanks Haley!
