Hi, I'm Peter Noble. 
Thanks for visiting my website!
   I have been teaching piano and voice in Nashville and Denver for more than 20 years and have extensive experience working with students of all ages and levels of skill - from beginners to professionals. 
  I teach in a patient, personal style - tailoring lessons to each student's aptitude, ability, and pace. As students gain proficiency, I seek to include music in the lessons that they love - and will want to return to again and again.

                      PIANO INSTRUCTION    

                                                PRE-SCHOOL                                                   
We begin with basic rhythm and movement exercises, 
followed by simple melodies played one finger at a time. 
More skills are added - playing with two or more fingers, then both hands together, 
basic note reading and rhythm, playing favorites by ear - 
as the student's abilities develop.

                           SCHOOL-AGED                              
Young students begin with the Alfred method, learning to keep a beat, 
read and listen at the same time, dynamics and phrasing. Theory is taught as it applies to each lesson - helping the student understand and build on knowledge of scales, intervals, chords and rhythm. Ear training is emphasized as a natural part of memorizing music. As skills progress we add music (both written and recorded) that the student chooses along with basic repertoire. Daily practice is the key to progress -  learning how to practice effectively is emphasized.
Through Pianos 'n Piano's event center there will be opportunities for fall and spring recitals.

OLDER/EXPERIENCED 
Experienced and/or older beginners can start from where you are -
developing desired skills while including music that you have played - 
or have always wanted to play. 
Learn basic classical repertoire, pop or show tunes, rock, country or jazz. 
There is no age limit - students begin in their 70s and 80s.

VOCAL INSTRUCTION

I teach a powerful method of breathe control and sound placement that will 
give you control and confidence in your voice.
If you are working professional, this can make a big difference in 
all kinds of demanding performance environments.  
Or, if you just want to sound good in the shower, I can help. 
Depending on age and experience, we usually begin with the music you most want to sing - 
using tracks or live accompaniment.

 BACKGROUND VOCALS    
Harmony singing is a separate skill from lead singing, 
in that you learn how to listen, breathe, phrase and blend with others to create one sound. 
A vital skill for the working musician or just a way to make beautiful music with others.

ACCOMPANY YOUR OWN VOICE
For those beginning to learn to sing and play (piano or guitar), 
we will develop your ability, step by step, to do them together -
playing music you really want to learn.

PERFORMANCE SKILLS AND FLUTE INSTRUCTION 

 DEVELOPING PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE SKILLS: 
Learn to hear and develop keyboard parts from recordings and/or develop parts for your original music.

Read and write charts - conventional staff or Nashville number system.
Finding/developing keyboard sounds to fit the song.

Basics principles of live sound engineering - both from the stage and front of house -  and stage lighting for working bands.

I especially enjoy working with young players 
who are ready to go pro.  We can work specifically on the songs and skills you need to be successful!  
 FLUTE LESSONS
We begin with the basics: position, breath control, and tone. 
Then progressing to note reading, keeping a beat, ear training, 
learning to listen and play with others. If the student is in a school band or orchestra we will work with their current pieces.

The breathing method I teach for voice can make a difference for any wind instrument player and is the basis for a good tone.
