West Colfax Academy at Golden Music

Lessons Login


West Colfax Academy at Golden Music honors and supports the tradition of learning music and believes everyone should have the opportunity to play an instrument. The purpose of West Colfax Academy's educational programs is to experience collaboration and lay the groundwork for a lifetime of making music. When we support each other, we become more inspired, more musical, kinder, wiser, and better. Music is vital to a healthy mind, body and heart. It leads us to a more fulfilled and joyous life and brings our families, friends and communities closer together. Our goal is to put an instrument into the hands of every student who walks through our doors, with the hope of giving them a musical experience they will hold onto the rest of their lives.  

A great educator not only demonstrates, but inspires. At West Colfax Academy, the teachers that come in are professionals in their field and are committed to going the extra mile for their students. In fact, that’s the very reason why they teach—the satisfaction of sharing their gift and experience with eager, curious minds.

Providing lessons on just about every instrument we offer, the perfect teacher for you awaits. Hundreds of students are enrolled in our program, each one with a unique set of goals and level of proficiency.

Starting your lessons in an environment that inspires learning and creativity is key.  The professional musicians that come to West Colfax Academy have performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall to Fiddler’s Green, yet their greatest achievements and strengths are empowering their students to grow.

You can learn more about the teachers, their specialties, credentials, and experiences with a quick trip to our offerings listed below or give our lesson coordinator a call at 303-279-1111.

    "I'm happy that I found a great teacher Meagan for myself, an adult learner of the cello. I'm finally learning correct form and its greatly improving my playing. I'm also thrilled they have a student orchestra I can join! There are others in my age group I can play with in addition to the younger players. Great fun!" Holly M. Sep 2019

    "I have enjoyed taking piano lessons from Mike Kraus at Golden Music. I have played off and on for many years, and I'm learning a different set of skills with Mike than I was taught previously."  Deborah H. Sep 2019

    "Joe is an exceptional person. Not only is he talented, he is caring and enthusiastic about not only music, but life. He has been understanding about my scheduling issues, due to my travel, as well as my health issues. As an older ( well, sorta older) person, this has been a very positive experience for me." Patricia S. Sep 2019

    "My sister Hailey has been taking piano lessons with for 2 months now and has made tremendous improvement in such a short amount of time. I am very happy I signed up with Golden Music and hope to continue with lessons for as long as Hailey continues to love them." Kat  Sep 2019

    "Mark Harris is an excellent musician and patient teacher for both of my children." Joel R. Sep 2019 

     "Her whole 10-year-old life, Hannah has loves to sing, anywhere, everywhere, and all the time. We call it, the Han-dora (Pandora) station. The first time she met her teacher, she said, "I could sing with him all day long. He is SO much fun! Can I have a voice lesson every day?" She loves to practice her vibrato, her up and down chords, and her breathing.  We are so happy to have found Golden Music."  Suzanne Feb 2019

    "My 5th grade son started playing the French horn this school year. He has a beautiful instrument in great shape and is really enjoying learning to play it. Golden Music has been a part of the process.  Music is part of my life in that...I love music. I can't imagine a day without hearing music. I love hearing my son make music and replicating music that he hears! I wish I had that gift!"  Julie June 2019
