My name is Kenny R., and I would absolutely love to work with you! While able to help with all music subjects and instruments K-12, my specialties include Brass, Piano, Theory, Aural Skills, and Arranging. I have performed and recorded with a variety of groups throughout the U.S. and Europe, including orchestras, bands, jazz bands, hip-hop groups and artists, rock bands, etc. I currently teach at a music school, 3 high schools, and a middle school and absolutely love teaching groups and lessons. My various and diverse experiences will help bring a patient and understanding attitude to working with students while always maintaining and communicating high expectations. I focus significantly on practice and performance habits so that the student musician can learn effectively on their own, and so their practice translates to performance effortlessly.

I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Oregon and most recently earned my Master's degree from the University of Colorado Boulder. Both degrees are in Music Performance and Pedagogy. My professors and teachers that I have learned from have changed my life significantly both as a human and a musician, and I aim to do the same for the rest of my life. I would be happy to set-up a trial meeting with you to see if we would be a good fit together!

I am a full time music teacher who cares deeply about my students and the performance opportunities I receive. I have won numerous competitions and have a strong pedagogy base that any brass, aural skills, or theory student can benefit from. Music and learning music can be efficient and fun if we allow it to, and through aural based learning my students develop the skills to thrive.

I would love to meet you for a trial lesson - first one is on me. I promise that when you work with me, I will give you my effort, honesty, compassion, and musical knowledge every time we work together. Please schedule your first lesson below today!

Ear Training,

Ear Training

Ear training and sight singng are vital for the life of a brass performer, and I thrive in aural training situations. I received an A+ in every semester of aural skills and can easily and accessibly teach either ear training or sight singing to any age level using any system of solfege or pitch organization that would best help the student. I also can help apply these skills directly to the instrument through the assimilation of information.

I teach brass at 7 different schools in the Boulder, CO area and at a music school that provides community outreach at title-I schools. I have performed on my instruments in 8 states and 6 countries, most recently winning a solo competition in Spain. My degree and thesis specializes in how motor skill learning in conjunction with music can best be taught.
