Jeannine A

Born to a musical family, Jeannine grew up in a multi-instrumental and multi-cultured home. She began formal classical training at the age of 7, studying the violin and singing in choir. Informally, she sang in the church gospel choir. She continued her education in music throughout her teens at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, and later attended the University of Missouri School of Music, where she played violin in the University of Missouri Philharmonic. Throughout her life, she has continued this pattern of formal and informal development, with the help of teachers and collaborators far and wide. Ever pushing the boundaries of her own comfort zone, Jeannine took an interest in improvisation and started moonlighting with country, blues, bluegrass, and rock bands around Missouri, while studying jazz theory and improv in college. She has toured and traveled as an artist and teacher - though she is always a perpetual student of music. Jeannine has been a strings teacher for 9 years. During a pandemic-enforced break from teaching, Jeannine moved to Colorado and ended up meeting her husband and birthing two beautiful little humans. Jeannine and her husband co-lead a band together called The Canary Initiative.   

Jeannine is thrilled to return to teaching. She uses a student-led, goal-oriented approach to learning, involving modern music, improvisation, and playing by ear while leaning on scaffolding from traditional pedagogy and Suzuki method. Jeannine focuses on helping students learn the music that inspires them by getting into the nuts and bolts of how it's made (theory), how it's played (technique), and what may have inspired it (music history). Learning music is not only fun, but teaches you discipline, cooperation, math, science, history, language, courage, self-esteem, emotional literacy, and self care. It is truly a lifelong journey that connects you to universal humanity and divinity. Jeannine also teaches secondary instruments piano, viola, and cello.

Noelle P

Noelle Pennison is currently enrolled as a Music Major at Pikes Peak Community College. Growing up she sang often with her sister and became inspired by the renowned violinist, Lindsey Stirling. 
She has been playing the violin for over 8 years. She began learning in the Orchestra of Thomas Maclaren School in sixth grade and continued at the School for four years. During this time she even had the opportunity to play with her class at the Colorado Springs Philharmonic when she was in Orchestra IV as a 2nd Violinist and was also involved for a short time in the school’s bluegrass club where she was taught to improvise her playing and learn a bit of fiddle music. When she switched schools, she continued to play the violin and even developed the skill to play music by ear.

She soon became interested in the voice acting industry towards the end of high school and found that her love for singing helped her become an even better voice actress by broadening her vocal range. 


Noelle believes that music is a beautiful form of art that sparks peoples' creativity and wonder. Her ultimate goal is to share that with her students and help them explore their musical passion or help them find it.

Deidre G

Deidre is a lifetime musician and has been learning and playing music from a very young age. The movie Fantasia inspired her to play the harp when she was two. After taking piano lessons until she was ten, she finally started on the harp and has been playing both instruments ever since. Her family has always been musical. Deidre grew up singing in her family choir. That love of vocal music followed her to college at BYU- Idaho where she majored in Music. She sang with the Collegiate Singers at school and went on to sing with the Cumberland Oratorio Singers in North Carolina and the Colorado Springs Chorale in Colorado. Deidre has conducted choirs at her church for years and was the choir director at Mitchell High School from 2016-2017.

Deidre believes that music is universal and all encompassing. Her belief that everyone can sing combines with her love for her students and creates a safe place for exploration and accomplishment. Each student is individual and each has a unique journey, but everyone can do music. She laughs with her students and has fun while still guiding their steps forward. Her teaching is influenced by her cardinal rule: "Loud and proud. Strong and wrong." Whatever you do, do with confidence.

Travis M

Travis' life in music started early on. He took piano lessons from kindergarten to fifth grade and started on trombone in third. All through junior high and high school he had the opportunity to play in youth and independent orchestras, concert, athletic and jazz bands. Travis went on to study music at the University of Colorado here in Colorado Springs where he studied under world-class musicians, traveled in a Gospel band, started a career in film composing and band directing. Outside of the music school he teaches junior high and high school band. 

After years of exploring, teaching and becoming competent on different instruments, Travis can safely say that learning music can be a pain...but it doesn’t have to be. His philosophy on learning any instrument or anything concerning music is that, “Learning naturally is learning efficiently”. Regardless of who you are or where you come from, our brains have common ways of retaining information. If learning is not, in some way, rewarding or seems out of reach, then the learning process slows down. What Travis tries to create with all his students is a fun, engaging and challenging environment where music can become simple and natural. 

Travis is glad you’ve considered The Colorado Springs Music School. He looks forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals!
