Music saved me from a life of trouble. It is my beacon of light and always fills me with joy. If I can pass even the tiniest bit of that gift on to another, then it makes me happy.

    At the suggestion of a friend we joined Band Dynamics Summer Camp a few years ago. It was such a hit that we signed up the next summer as well. The kids really connected with their band teachers each summer and soon enough we had signed up for monthly drum lessons. Our kids have been in lessons consistently for more than a year. Stephan attracts top-notch, experienced teachers who are working musicians and extremely knowledgeable in their instrument. As a parent, learning music theory while playing your favorite song is a win-win. They have successfully assisted my kids with a variety of drum auditions and the fact that they can teach to a wide breath of musical styles/genres is very important and speaks to their knowledge. This summer my oldest clicked with his summer camp band mates and they are now in a band together at Band Dynamics. Learning how to compromise, collaborate, write music, and perform together, under their guidance, holds many valuable life lessons that translate in and out of the music arena. Stephan and his team can teach a variety of instruments and will work with you on the best time/day for lessons as well as moving in an out of programs that challenge your musician. My kids look forward to going each week and better yet, practice every day.

    In our family, we have had A LOT of music teachers. Band Dynamics is the greatest BY FAR!! They are kind, fun, and have produced tremendous results in my kids in a very short time. They are excellent teachers who have also created an atmosphere that my kids enjoy being a part of and are happy to go to their lessons. It's amazing!

    My daughter has been taking lessons at Band Dynamics for a little over a year now, and she loves it! She calls the school her "happy place." Their approach to teaching music keeps the kids engaged and excited. I can honestly say that I have never had to argue with, cajole, or bribe my daughter to get her to practice. She attended two weeks of their summer camps this year, and those weeks were some of the highlights of her summer vacation. I cannot recommend Stephan, Dillon, and all the teachers at Band Dynamics highly enough!

  • Jim Bates

    Stephan uses helpful and positive methods during our weekly lesson. He encourages and challenges me to enjoy and get better. I couldn't ask for more. My weekly lesson is a highlight of every week.

  • Jenni Petersen

    My son started guitar lessons with Stephan when he was 13 years old. He had 3-4 teachers before him and learned some basics but he was getting bored and really never practiced. When he began his lessons with Stephan you could tell something happened because he actually practiced and enjoyed it. A complete change in attitude with both playing and at school. He was inspired and now felt a level of confidence I had not seen in the past. I can't express enough how highly I think of Stephan and all the teachers at Band Dynamics.

Q & A

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Everyone has a reason they want to learn to play a musical instrument. We start right away by finding out your reason. We lay the groundwork for how to get you to your goals and we start having fun right away!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelors degree in music from the University of Colorado, over 20 years of performing experience, and 16 years of teaching experience in many group and individual settings.

We started our school with just an idea and a few students in a house basement. Now we have evolved to the space and methods we have years later.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We charge month to month. It's easy to join and easy to take a break. Lessons start at around $28 for a half hour, personalized experience, once per week.


How did you get started teaching?

I was working at a music store when I was demonstrating a new guitar to a young kiddo. In a few moments he learned the introduction to a Beatles song! I was so thrilled and the parents asked if I taught with confidence as if I already did. Since then I have devoted my life to it.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with kids from about 4 years old up through retirement. I have taught very beginners and even students who have high academic goals and prepared them to succeed in college. I have worked with children in hospitals and even those with special needs. My passion is to try and make the "light bulb" go off in a student's mind and fall in love with music like I did as a kid.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently saw our music school have one of the best music camp weeks ever! It is so amazing to see students start with no knowledge and blossom into a full-blown band ready to perform in just a week.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be yourself. The more you tell teachers like me, the more exciting it is to design your lesson plans. 

If you feel like you'd rather sing a Taylor Swift song, let us know!

We understand that for many people you are taking lessons in confidence as much as music when we work and play together.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Try not to ask "how long will it take to get good at this?" But instead maybe "what do you recommend to help me feel like I am accomplishing my goals along the way?"

Also music teachers like me like to share our story. Ask away! The more students and teachers know about each other's musical path, the more exciting it is.
