The Colorado Music Institute is a family-owned business completely focused on sharing our passion for music!

Founded in 1996 as the Colorado Drum Institute, we have grown to become a complete music school offering not only Drums, but Guitar, Bass, Keyboards, Piano, Strings, Brass, Woodwinds and Vocals and more!  We teach a variety of styles including Classical Rock, Funk, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Classical, and Hip-Hop and we serve the entire Denver Metro area.  Students of all ages are welcome.  

Our faciities are top-notch.  The bright and spacious studios provide an excellent learning environment and contain a full stereo, drum machines, and computers.  Each of our drum studios contains two complete drum sets that are not padded up so our students can experience the full impact of making music!   The amps in our guitar studios are tops and our keyboards are the latest models.  We make sure our instruments are tuned and ready for our students to learn and play.  

Regular lessons are a half-hour long and hour-long lessons are also available. We are open seven-days a week:  Monday -Thursday from 1pm to 9pm, Friday from 1-5 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm.  However, morning and lunch-hour lessons are also available upon request!
