Intermezzo Academy of Music

Spring 2016 Schedule

The pull-out lessons in the Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum orchestras were such a success that we are going to continue them in spring and onward. Experienced players and professionals will continue to take students for private and semi-private lessons once a month. Early Start Strings and Composers Club will have one half-hour private lesson included in their term.

Please remember that these orchestras are in their second term, and students have already progressed. If you are new to the orchestras, please call 720.432.6873 to schedule a meeting so we can place your student correctly. As always, no audition is required to get simply helps us make sure your student is in the proper group for his or her level of progress. 

We also have a new music therapy program! This new opportunity is for students with special needs, learning differences, and those who are on the autism spectrum (ASD). The therapists will work from your strengths to help you reach your goals. Sessions are through Advantage Music Therapy to address cognitive development and social skills goals whether a student has an IEP or not. CES and SLS waivers accepted. For more information, go to and see what a difference an Advantage can make!
