Education & Experience

Riley Ann is as diverse of a teacher as she is a performer. Having performed in Classical, Old-time, bluegrass, rock, electronic, jazz, and blues settings, she is dedicated to supporting each of her students' individual journeys in music. She enjoys working with students of all ages and in all genres.

Riley Ann triple-majored at the University of Wisconsin Platteville in Music, English Education, and Middle Level Education. She taught high school English for six years in the Midwest prior to moving to Colorado to pursue her music career and is well versed in best practices in pedagogy. She currently plays out with The Catcalls (blues/rock), as a one-woman band (live looping), with Dave Jensen (acoustic/electric duo), and occasionally various area bands as a soloist. She's been dubbed, " of the region's most enigmatic performers" on Chris K's playlist on The Colorado Sound and enjoys balancing teaching with gigging around the area as well as cross-country tours.
