The Modern Music Academy of Colorado is an all-in-one music performance and music production academy. We specialize in teaching students on any instrument at any level of musicianship. All of the instructors hired by Modern Music Academy of Colorado are competent performers and teachers of all common western genres of music; jazz, classical, rock, pop, folk, country, and everything in between. All of our teachers have formal musical credentials and are trained both from an academic standpoint, and also from real-world, performance based experience.
Because all of the teachers here are also musical performers, we put a strong emphasis on our students performance. That is why we offer yearly recitals (optional to all of our students) as well as many other private and public musical performance opportunities around the communities in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. Also included with your monthly tuition to MMA of Colorado is access to ALL of our extensive online resources including musical curriculum, notes from your teacher about each lesson, and practice suggestions from your teacher. This way, you will never have to tell your instructor that you didn't know what to practice!
Private lessons at MMA of Colorado are offered on a variety of instruments and musical styles and are ideal for the novice to advanced musician who wants to push their understanding of their instrument(s) as well as their understanding of music in general. Private lessons provide the ideal setting to study more advanced musical topics such as transcription, song writing/composition, arranging, ear training, sight-reading, music theory, and other related topics.
Group lessons are a more affordable way for the beginner to novice musicians learn how to play songs or basic pieces of music on their instrument. Topics also covered in group lessons are: basic sight-reading (when stylistically appropriate), basic music theory, and basic ear training. Group lessons are given based on demand so availability and time restrictions may apply.
Here at the Modern Music Academy of Colorado, we believe in giving our students what they pay for; professional, first-hand knowledge of the musical arts! The instructors at this academy are all professional, working musicians and music teachers and are generally very busy people! For this reason, it is important to us to always be the most efficient with our time and your time that we know how to be. We want to work with students who want to learn! We love it when our students succeed!
For the reasons mentioned above, we offer weekly lessons as we find that a lesson once a week or more frequently is crucial to the development of our students. Lessons are paid for in one month blocks. Tuition for a month of lessons is due at the beginning of the first lesson of each month. The tuition cost for each month will be equal to the number of weeks in that month, multiplied by the rate for whichever of the following lesson types you choose:
1 hour lesson with a professional $45
1/2 hour lesson with a professional $25
In Home Lesson with professional (no half-hour lessons) $45/hour+$10 travel fee
Group lesson with professional (limited availability) $15/hour/student
