I started seeing Mike a few months ago for private guitar lessons. Having received lessons from a few other people, I can say that make is the best instructor I've had. I felt that I had hit a brick wall in learning music theory before getting lessons from Mike. But over the past few months, Mike has explained guitar music theory to me in a clear, and informative way. I know have a better understanding of guitar playing, and enjoy it more because of that. I would highly recommend getting guitar lessons from Mike whether you are a beginner, or a more experienced player that needs some help learning music theory.

We have hired Gary Schmidt to teach all three of our children piano lessons. He is able and willing to meet all three of them right where they are in regards to their ages (11, 8, and 5) and interests, and offers scheduling flexibility whenever possible. He is a very kind and approachable person and a superbly seasoned teacher. We are very happy we found him!

I have been a student for two years and have made amazing progress at the piano. With her ability to bring in many different aspects to the piano, from music theory to music history, I am able to learn in a well rounded way and makes piano learning directed and enjoyable. I am very grateful that I found such a talented and enthusiastic teacher to learn the piano. I highly recommend this teacher to anyone, especially for people that love music and want to become a true pianist.

Taking guitar lessons with Andrew has been an awesome experience for me. I started studying with Andrew a few months ago with the hopes of learning jazz guitar, a style that was completely new to me at the time. Since then I have improved exponentially in my playing and understanding of the necessary theory as well as my appreciation for jazz music. Andrew is a great, enthusiastic teacher and his lessons are always well structured and informative. Also, Andrew is just a hub of knowledge. I feel like I learn more from him in an hour than I do during weeks of practicing at home. If you're looking for a guitar teacher, I highly recommend him!

We prayed for an orchestra experience for our homeschooler. God answered our prayers when we found Ms. Huster. We have had our son in private lessons with her for less than a year and have watched him explode in technique and passion for his instrument. He has excelled in every musical challenge she has set before him. Ms. Huster is constantly striving to find music that will stretch him and build his confidence. She inspires him and supports his unique ideas for transforming music. She is friendly and skilled. When a teenager looks forward to music lessons, that attests to the ability of a teacher to be great!! We can't imagine anyone else influencing our young cellist.

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!

I am a classically trained musician and play several instruments. When my son asked to take saxophone lessons, I went about screening several potential instructors. I sat in on Chris's first lesson with my son and was delighted to see the innovative and clearly fun techniques he uses to help his students understand how the saxophone works and how to play it. I was completely enthralled and realized that if he had been my instructor, I would have truly enjoyed that experience and would have practiced more. My son is very happy with Chris and expects to be taking lessons for some time with him. I highly, highly recommend Chris Ruiz!

Verified review

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.

Dustin has been teaching my son for 4 years now and is an excellent instructor. He has taught Devin starting at the basics to classical, blues, rock, and also music theory and writing his own music. Dustin has been flexible in adapting his instruction with my son's needs and wants to keep him interested and continually learning more. Dustin is also very professional and reliable as an instructor and I would strongly recommend him for anyone looking for a guitar instructor. Dustin has incredible talent himself and sets the bar high for his students.

Egemen is an exceptional instructor / private tutor that builds the class based on the particular needs of each pupil. He meets with each individual to define goals for the class. Then, in order to reach these goals, he identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the pupil, and prepares the contents of the class accordingly. He never hesitates to take the extra step to come up with material that best suits the capabilities of the particular individual. No matter if you're interested in music theory, music composition, electronic music, or piano, Egemen is an inexhaustible resource that will keep you impatient for the next lesson.

When I was about 6, Rhonda became my very first piano teacher. Now, 25 years later, I look back at my years of piano with her with so much fondness and appreciation. She was ever-patient, kind, and encouraged creativity and love for music. The foundation she helped me build has stayed with me, even when years pass between playing. I so wish that I lived near her now so I could resume lessons! Anyone who has the opportunity to work with her is truly blessed!

My experience with the Alexandra Eddy Project as been a great experience overall. I have been taking violin lessons from various teachers for over two decades and have found Dr. Alexandra Eddy to be extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of violin performance as well as music theory and history. Her teaching style is not intimidating, but professional and encouraging and I have been able to make many advances in the art because of her excellent instruction. I highly recommend looking into violin lessons with the Alexandra Eddy Project if you are interested in learning or continuing with the instrument!

I contacted Alan about guitar lessons for my dad for father's day - he was very prompt, polite & professional in his response. My dad is going to wait until the fall to start lessons, but I will definitely be contacting Alan again!

About

I have been an independent music instructor for over 25 years. I teach piano, classical guitar, electric guitar, cello, drums and music theory. I provide long-term support for students of all ages.

About

I have 3 programs - traditional private piano lessons (ages 6 1/2 and up), Let's Play Music (ages 4-6) and Sound Beginnings (ages 2-4) Let's Play Music is a 3-year music theory course for starting ages 4-6, that emphasizes total musicianship through piano playing, singing, classical music, note reading, and ear training, and that's accomplished through play! Let's Play Music is based on the philosophies of Kodaly, Dalcroze and Orff. Students learn to read rhythms by saying bug notes (four 16th notes is "cat-er-pil-lar"), learn chord progressions through colors (I is a red chord, IV is a blue chord, V is a yellow chord) and much more. They start on the autoharp and bell set for their 1st year and transfer the skills they learned to the piano on the 2nd and 3rd year. They learn advanced theory skills while also developing their ear skills. By the end of the program, the students compose their own song and play it at the recital. Let's Play Music is a great program both for students who want to go on and study classical music and those who want to play popular music since it teaches the necessary skills for both. Ear training, composing, transposing, and an understanding of chords are very important skills for the contemporary 21st-century musician that are often neglected in traditional piano lessons. These are huge focuses in Let's Play Music and in my private piano lessons as well.
