Mandolyn B. Chicago, IL

I teach beginner clarinets lessons. An example would be a student in 4th or 5th grade just starting band, I can start with them and stay with them until they go to college. Adult students starting out can last many years with me as their teacher before moving onto the next 'intermediate' level.

About Mandolyn

Hello, thank you for visiting my site! I am currently a music teacher for Kindergarten-8th grade, teaching general music, concert band and choir, with the occasional school performance of a musical thrown in the mix. My education in music really took off when I attended a Performing Arts High School where I focused mainly on the clarinet, piano and bassoon. During this time I was very active in the High School solo competition scene and took away many state titles in music theory, clarinet and piano. After graduating I received my BFA€™ in Piano Performance from the University of MN-Duluth. While I was studying I was fortunate to have an inspirational conductor who handed instruments of all kinds out to me. This really held my love and appreciation for music and I learned a lot

Great teacher, personable, patient, expert musician. I recommend for students of all ages. I already know other instruments and music theory but I can see his teaching skills would be great for a total beginner as well.

Corbin has started teaching our 10 year old saxophone. Our son had a little bit of experience and Corbin has kept the enthusiasm going. Lessons are a lot of fun and motivating.

I had only had limited time to learn everything from scratch about the Saxophone. Corbin did an amazing job at bringing me up to speed in 5 lessons and giving me the essential tools to be autonomous. I can already play any tune (as long as it's simple still) and am improving my technique daily.

Great teacher, friendly and awesome player. Would recommend without reservation!

I also played with the Philharmonic (top) Orchestra, and sat first chair of both during my senior year.

Yuen Yee R. Chicago, IL

Every teacher has different teaching approach and philosophy. I'd say every teacher that I met tries their best to help their students to learn and develop as a musician and a well-rounded person. I love teaching and sharing with students. I help my students to gain interest in music and art and enjoy playing music. In my lessons, I aim to help my students to become independent in music playing and learning so they can keep playing music for the rest of their lives with or without a teacher.
