J Highland Music

Justin Highland · Denver, CO


Hi, I'm Justin Highland, pianist and composer from Denver, Colorado. I started playing piano at age 8 and guitar at age 12 and have been teaching for the past 8 years privately and in group settings to all ages and levels. There is nothing I love more than sharing my passion for music with others. I attended MSU Denver and received a BA in Jazz and Classical Piano Studies. My mentors include piano greats Art Lande, Eric Gunnison, Peter Stoltzman and Peter Martin. I teach Jazz, Classical, Blues, Rock, Contemporary and Pop as well as Cuban/Latin/Brazilian piano styles. My specialties include teaching jazz piano, music theory and improvisation.

Over the years I have worked with many different students in private and group settings. I have taught all ages and levels from age 3 to 78 and every age in between. For a few years I worked extensively with children in the 4 - 8 age range, teaching group piano lessons in various preschools and elementary schools in the greater Denver area. Currently I teach out of my studio located at the Broadway Music School, just south of downtown Denver at Broadway and Evans Avenue.

I have always loved helping people, and after teaching music to some close friends freshman year of college, I found my true passion. In addition, some of my first piano teachers and my mentors greatly inspired me with their vast knowledge, piano wizardry and constant positive encouragement. The thing I love most about teaching is being able to help people learn about, have fun with and succeed at learning an instrument as well as playing music together. I believe everyone has a musical side to them whether they realize it or not, and bringing that side out of people and seeing them succeed and grow gives me the best feeling in the world.

My advice to aspiring students is this: Learning and studying music should be fun, first and foremost. Find what things about music interest you, and follow that interest. Listen to lots of different kinds of music. Play with others: Find other people who share the same passion you do and play music with them. Realize that being good at an instrument does not come over night and takes much practice, time and dedication. Lastly, I will leave you with an old Chinese proverb: "Teachers can show you the door, but you must enter by yourself."

Music can be one of the most fulfilling and joyous activities you can do with your life, and can improve many non-musical areas such as memory, reasoning, discipline and improving test scores just to mention a few. Whether you are preparing for a college-level audition or just want to try an instrument out for fun; Whatever your musical goals are, I am fully committed to helping you achieve them!
