About this pro

My name is Gary Bishop and I am professional musician, teach piano, keyboards, and composition.  I have lived and teach piano in the Golden area for over 17 years.  Many of my students attend local area schools such as: Kyffin, Shelton and Mitchell Elementary Schools, Bell and Manning Middle Schools plus Golden, Green Mountain, Wheat Ridge, Ralston Valley and Arvada West High Schools. Some of your neighbors may be my current or past students!  I teach a variety of piano styles from classical to jazz to blues to pop and even music composition with my more advanced students.  I incorporate today's technology through iPad Apps, digital keyboards and music composing software to engage a new millennium of musicians!

I am a member of the local Foothills Music Teachers Association and the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).  Additionally, I am bonded by Jefferson County Schools.  I teach all levels - beginner, intermediate and advanced.  If you are interested in becoming a musician, please contact me for a free interview and preliminary lesson.

    My son took lessons from Gary for 10 years, from 2nd grade all the way through high school. Gary has a way of encouraging his students to be persistent. He allows them to play music they are interested in, a huge plus to retain their interest. My son continues to play in college and draws students to his dorm with music.

    Gary has taught all three of my children. He is wonderful, patient and extremely knowledgeable about the piano and music. It's clear that he really enjoys teaching. I highly recommend him.

    Gary has been teaching my daughter for the last 3 years. While he is always kind and patient with her, he's also not afraid to call her out (in a gentle way) when she hasn't practiced. He gives her good practice tips and lets her pick fun pieces that she wants to learn. He also maintains a nice balance between piano theory and regular lesson book music alongside the fun of learning a popular song. We've truly enjoyed our experience with Gary.

    We have been with Mr. Bishop for over 6 years and are so pleased with his instruction and guidance. He has been such a patient teacher, working with our children starting in kindergarten. He has helped instill their love of music and confidence as creative people!
