Colorado School of Music 2016 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 70 participants performing this year on piano, guitar, violin, drums, clarinet, singing, and even the glockenspiel!  Special thanks to the Arvada Center and Schmitt Music in Denver, who provided our Steinway 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 or call us to set up a summer music lesson today!    

Lost And Found…mostly Lost

Have you misplaced your favorite water bottle or your piano lesson book? We may have it in our lost and found.  We have a large selection of items that have been left behind by our students and their families, and, with the exception of phones, most of these items remain unclaimed.  If you think you may have left something behind, please ask one of our staff members.

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 and let us know what you’re looking for – chances are, we have an instructor that can help you!

Our Featured Instructor:  Zach West, percussion.

The Colorado School of Music is happy to be able to provide a full drum kit for drum lessons and to have our percussion instructor, Zach West as our teacher. In this month’s newsletter, we wanted to let you get to know Zach better.

Zach has been playing music for over twenty years and works as a professional musician in the Denver area.  With decades of teaching experience, Zach’s instruction focuses on jazz, rock, blues and Latin music styles. Zach’s students learn to create musical phrases using the two main elements of any style; beats and fills. Zach teaches drum set, mallet percussion, rudimental exercises, and hand drumming. Zach earned a Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and has been with the Colorado School of Music since 2009.
