Pikes Peak Arts Academy

At PPAA we are about unlocking the music student's passion by respecting them as individuals, giving them the tools to create good music, and encouraging them to be their own best teacher through thoughtful practice and inspired performance.  

Here are some lovely testimonials we've gotten.



Thank you so much for the voice lessons. I so respect and love who you are and the demand that you put on me. Thank you for challenging and encouraging me to be all that God has called me to be. I don't think I will ever be able to communicate how you have helped heal my heart in the area of music. I have worked with several voice teachers and almost left more damaged after working with them. You are incredible at what you do and I am honored to learn under you.

Love you,

Dear Christi,
     You have taught me so much about music and more! Thank you so much for being such an amazing teacher, mentor and friend. You are such a star in my life. I look forward to next semester!

Love you so much,

Dear Mr. Bovee,

     Thank you for being my piano teacher! You were so helpful and taught me so many new things about playing; how it wasn't just pressing the right notes, it was imagining what a song could be and performing it with soul. I had a blast every time I had a lesson, and you were so fun to work with. You have forever changed my passion and ideas about music in an excellent way and I can't thank you enough!

Your Student,

Dear Christi and Mark,

Thank you so much for helping me advance musically for these past two years. Both of you have aided me in uncovering skills I never knew I had. This experience has been so wonderful!


Hi Christi & Mark,

Can't tell you how much I appreciate you both teaching my kids.  They are trying new things musically and practice and work on their music all on their own.  You have inspired them and really moved them forward.  Thanks for all you do.



We cannot thank you enough for continuing to be a great teacher and a powerful light in our daughter's life.

With love,


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Bovee,

Thank you so much for all your help as I was preparing for my college audition.  The training, piano accompaniment music and your support really helped me out and made my audition one of the most successful the head of the theatre department said he had ever seen!  You both really helped me. I'm so grateful for people like you.

God bless you,


Thank you, Mrs. Bovee!

Thank you for teaching me how to handle and expand my voice, and for encouraging me through all my sickness and voice troubles this semester.  It has been really enjoyable to have you as my teacher after such a long day with school and other activities.  Thank you very much for all you've done to help me!

With much love,
