Our overall teaching philosophy is simple: PLAY MUSIC, HAVE FUN and PERFORM LIVE!
All of our classes and workshops are directed, coached or led by professional, real world, working musicians with years of experience teaching, directing bands, coaching, recording, performing and writing music.
Our faculty members direct Stillwater classes as one would a professional group: expecting professionalism, while enjoying the process. We also teach and implement musical lessons that carry over into daily life: respect, developing self esteem, working together towards a common goal, and learning to follow directions by listening and interacting appropriately with faculty and fellow students.
To discuss placement of your child in our programs, returning students should contact their current instructor and prospective students may contact our Program Director at [email protected] or 970-247-5095.
It is sometimes hard to believe that summer is right around the corner. But Stillwater is planning plenty of fun and diverse camps and classes for all ages and levels, designed to fit perfectly with everything else you want to do.
Stillwater offers a cappella singing groups for all levels.
This ensemble is for kids with little or no experience playing ukulele in a group setting.
Stillwater’s flagship youth band program offers introductory, beginning, intermediate and advanced level classes for all kids ages 6-18. Students will be placed in an appropriate group based on ability, maturity and availability of positions. Our classes often have a wide age group of students.
Our Accelerando Early Childhood Program introduces the world of music and rhythm to preschoolers and kindergarteners.
The Stillwater All Stars are a select group of students playing alongside faculty members. This group tours and gigs during summer months in the Four Corners Area, culminating with a main stage performance at the Telluride Jazz Festival in early August.
