The best part of teaching private lessons is working with people from all walks of life. Every single student is unique, and music is a fantastic form of expressing that individuality. Not one lesson is conducted in the same manner as the next, which allows for each day to be a new creative adventure :)

Over the last 20 years, Calee has studied various instruments including piano, voice, guitar, marching bass drum, trumpet, baritone, and tuba.
Through her first years of college, she double-majored in Vocal Performance and Music Education, eventually earning a degree in Professional Music. These years, plus everything leading up to them, equipped Calee with all the tools she needs to make it in the professional world of music -- writing, arranging, and recording skills; piano and vocal skills in jazz, classical, and pop; leading rehearsals like a pro; and most importantly, learning how to pass her knowledge on to you :)
After college, Calee was fortunate enough to be invited back to teach full-time at The School for Music Vocations. Here, she taught a variety of courses including music theory, recording studio, nationally touring vocal jazz ensembles, regionally touring concert choir, as well as private lessons in jazz voice, classical voice, and classical piano.
In 2017, Calee moved from small-town Iowa to Denver to open a private lesson studio and to pursue her music career. Currently, she teaches piano, voice, and theory lessons at Denver Music Institute, manages Denver Music Institute, and plays/sings with a band named Bellhoss :)

Probably every student you could think of! One of Calee's favorite parts of the job is that every student is unique. She's worked with all ages from 3.5 to 72; she's worked with students who have no idea what "middle C" means, students who are prepping for auditions and college entrance exams, students who want to sing and accompany themselves on either piano or guitar, students who want to write and record their own music, students who want to work fundamentals and sight-reading skills, and many, many more.
Make sure you enjoy your lessons! "Play" is the root word of music, so find an instructor that guides you through the techniques, but also allows you to have fun, relax, and play every once in a while :)
