We offer hour-long, private lessons in voice, piano, and mandolin, and from day one it is our personal goal to help you achieve your goals. We are not only your music teachers, we are are also your coach, your mentor, and your biggest fan. Our greatest desire is to see you succeed in all you set out to do with us.
When you sign up for lessons, you are reserving a weekly lesson time for the entire month/session and tuition for the month/session is due at the beginning of the month. We strongly encourage making a long-term commitment to lessons in order to develop skills and get the results you want.
Sample of skills and techniques covered in lessons:
• Voice - Beginner through Advanced levels, Vocal Health, Breath Support, Placement, Resonance, Tone, Diction, Range, Audition Prep
and Performance Techniques

All students are expected to perform in student recitals. We have 2 recitals a year, one in the spring, one in the fall. A recital fee of
$30 will be charged to each student (per recital); students are required to pay the recital fee at the beginning of the recital month.
Learning an instrument is a skill that takes time and commitment. Weekly lessons allow us the time to focus on correct technique,
explore performance skills, and develop a breadth of repertoire, but your daily practice time is where you apply what we do in lessons so
that long-term growth and development may occur and become second nature to you. We cannot over emphazise the importance of
practice time. We recommend at least 30 minutes of focused practice each day. If you are motivated and hard working, then you will go
far and see the results you desire.
Colorado All-State Choir Preparation
Each year I help students who are interested in the Colorado All State Choir prepare for their audition, and I have had several students be accepted. We work on sight reading skills, aural recall, scales (major/minor/chromatic), intonation and an appropriate audition piece. If you are interested in this, please let me know as soon as possible so we can begin preparing accordingly.
The 2018-2019 Colorado All State Choir TBD. For more details and to register for an audition, visit http://www.aschoir.com/
Theatre Audition Prep Coaching
Hour long coaching sessions for students and adults who are preparing for theatre/musical theatre auditions, or working on developing a character for which they've been cast. I have 20+ years of theatrical experience, and many of my students have been offered major or minor roles in the productions they auditioned for, including parts in Mulan, Seussical, The Lion King, Shrek, Bring it On!, Annie and Little Shop of Horrors to name a few. Some of my students also have successfully auditioned for regional performing arts schools, including the Denver Center for Performing Arts.
