CSoM NEWSLETTER – October 2015

Fall In! –  Hello everyone!  With the leaves turning and the kids back in school, music lessons are in full swing!  We’d like to welcome all of our new students to the Colorado School of Music and say welcome back to all of our returning students! Our current roster is made up of students from all over the Denver Metro area and includes students from Golden, Denver Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Lakewood, and even as far as Genesee and Boulder!

Welcome our new Instructor! –  The Colorado School of Music is happy to announce the addition of piano instructor Caroline Browning to our staff!

Mother on board… We would also like to welcome back our long-time beloved instructor Sydney Heptig, returning to teach piano lessons after her maternity leave!

We’re glad to have Sydney back with us – if you’d like to register for piano lessons with Sydney or any of our other teachers, call 303-526-9865 to book a lesson.

The Snow is Coming…   As we head into the cold months we get questions regarding our closure policy for winter concerning snow closures. In the event of a snow closure, The Colorado School of Music will post an announcement on our website: the morning of the day in question to announce the closure. In the event of a snow closure, your account will be credited for the next month. Due to our large schedules we don’t make personal calls regarding snow days, so please check the website when in doubt.

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 oboe or the glockenspiel? Is it difficult finding a conga 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.
