CSoM NEWSLETTER – May 2017

Welcome to the Colorado School of Music!

Now in our eleventh year in Golden, we are committed to providing the best in private music lessons in Golden and the Denver area. Our current roster is comprised of musicians from all over the Denver Metro area and includes students from Golden, Denver, Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Lakewood, Littleton and Boulder!

Colorado School of Music 2017 Recital
Congratulations to all of our performers and thank you to our audience for making this year’s recital a big success! We had over 60 participants performing this year on piano, guitar, violin, drums, clarinet, and singing!  Special thanks to the Arvada Center and Schmitt Music in Denver, who provided our grand piano. See you same time next year!

Summer Music
The Colorado School of Music is open year-round and we offer our normal schedule of private lessons throughout the warm months. Summer is a great time to begin youth piano lessons or guitar lessons – or perhaps you’re interested in trying something new like ukulele or drums. School band members – get ahead of your orchestra by taking some private instrument lessons during the break! Great slots are still available – email info@coloradoschoolofmusic.com or call us to set up a summer music lesson today!    

Too Young For Music?
We often receive questions from parents regarding the appropriate/best age to start young children in formal music lessons. Of course, all children are different and there are always exceptions, but here are the general guidelines we use:

First, consider the instrument in relation to the age of the student. Piano lessons and Violin lessons are great choices for young children, as both violin and piano lessons have excellent curriculum for young beginners. Piano, in particular, provides a general overview of music theory and makes it easy to pick up other instruments as the student gets older. Some instruments can be difficult for beginners and aren’t as good for young children based on size, complexity, etc..

Four years old is generally too young for formal lessons. Progress is very slow and it can be difficult to maintain the focus required for practicing. Four year old hands are also often too small.

We feel that six years old is generally the best age for young children to begin formal lessons. Many lesson books and methods are geared toward this age for beginners, and the progress made at this age is both faster than younger students and better learned, as lessons and concepts seem to ‘stick.’

Five year olds are in the middle – at this age, it seems to depend on the child. If motivated and interested, the progress with a five year old will be a bit slower, but nonetheless valuable. We’re always willing to try lessons with five year olds – please ask if you have more questions about beginners or you’d like to take an introductory lesson with your young musician. Parents/Guardians are welcome in all lessons!

Never Too Old…music lessons for adults!
Music lessons are for the young at heart, not just the young. If you’ve been thinking of renewing your piano lessons or taking your guitar playing to the next level, try a private lesson with us! At the Colorado School of Music we are proud to have many adult students on our roster, studying all different disciplines. Our instructors are experienced with students of all ages, and will be happy to work with you to be sure that your lessons meet your individual needs.

Adult music lessons are available for all instruments, including guitar lessons, piano lessons, drums, violin, and more.

Come See Our Instructors Perform!
In addition to being dedicated teachers, many of our instructors are professional musicians and perform regularly in Golden and the Denver area.

Odd Instrument?  – They’re not really odd, just interesting! The Colorado School of Music has talented instructors who specialize in many instruments. Do you play the trombone or the glockenspiel? Is it difficult finding a djembe teacher? If you play an unconventional instrument and are looking for direction, send us an email at info@coloradoschoolofmusic.com and let us know what you’re looking for – chances are, we have an instructor that can help you!

Never Too Old…music lessons for adults!
Music lessons are for the young at heart, not just the young. If you’ve been thinking of renewing your love of piano or taking your guitar playing to the next level, try a private lesson with us! At the Colorado School of Music we are proud to have many adult students on our roster, studying all different disciplines. Our instructors are experienced with students of all ages, and will be happy to work with you to be sure that your lessons meet your individual needs.

Adult music lessons are available for all instruments, including guitar lessons, piano lessons, singing lessons, drums, violin, and more.
