About Chelsea Manning 

CHELSEA MANNING is the owner of Highlands Ranch Music Lessons and teaches in Highlands Ranch and Central Park.

Chelsea is a trained classical musician who has spent the past 10 years teaching voice and piano lessons.


Chelsea received her undergraduate degree in Opera Performance from CU Boulder and went on to earn her Master's Degree in Music Education from UNC Greeley.  She began teaching private lessons during her graduate program and continued growing her studio and performing part time in operas, churches and in private bookings.

Once Chelsea's schedule was full with students, she reached out to find a fellow teacher to partner with and helped Matt Richter grow his own student base.

My music lesson business has given me a great set of skills.  I know how to listen and observe individual needs and struggles and help people.  I have great relationships with my customers and potential customers and I am able to listen and act on their needs, fears, desires, struggles and talents and act constructively to help them.  


I often hear that I have a very kind demeanor and tend to connect with students easily. I understand the importance of a music teacher becoming a mentor and know that a relationship with a student is a long term commitment.  I also hold reliability in high regard and find a lot of pride in sticking to my lesson schedule each week.

Many of my students have gone on to lead their school musicals, asked to accompany their choirs, play in their churches.  I have several students enrolled in the Denver School of the Arts and a couple students who have continued on to major in music in college.
