I have been playing clarinet since 2002, and teaching since 2009. I have taught in the public school setting, as well as private teaching since 2013 for beginners, intermediate, and high school level students. My goal is to provide accurate and practical information in playing your instrument. The sound of the clarinet becomes unique to each player, and coupled with proper technique in all areas of playing (finger technique, tone, articulation, note identification/reading, rhythm comprehension, musical expressions), this will springboard the enjoyment of practicing and playing music. This beautiful and melodious instrument completely encompasses the miracle of music, and working with me will create a solid foundation for such music making. Using a clarinet specific method book, we will begin with fundamental tone production, rhythm reading, and note reading so a solid foundation is created for life long music playing.

About Mady

Hi, I'm Mady! I have been an enthusiast for the clarinet since I started in 6th grade in 2002. At the beginning of the Disney movie, 101 Dalmatians, the moving sheet music and clarinet sound had me hooked on wanting to learn how to play. Even before beginning band, I was trying to figure out how th

I have employed Madyson as an adjunct teacher at Waldron Public Schools in Arkansas where I teach. She has taught clarinet sectionals and lessons for us at the high school and middle school. She has done a fantastic job with our students. They have learned and gained a lot from her teaching. I recommend her to anyone looking for clarinet private instruction and/or group instruction.
Trevor
My son has been taking lessons once a week from Madyson since July, and I am very pleased with the progress he has made with her. She has a very energetic and outgoing personality that helps him enjoy the work he's putting forth.
Carol
Very patient, great sense of humor and very well priced. Been a flautist for 25 years and been playing the clarinet for several months now. It's what I always wanted to learn but couldn't till recently. Mady is great!

About Hannah

After studying piano for almost 10 years I decided I wanted to learn a new instrument and began taking violin lessons when I was 16 years old. In spite of people telling me that I was “too old” to learn to play the violin, I continued practicing and one year later I joined my first orchestra. In 20

Hannah does a wonderful job with my daughter, she started with how to tune and set up the violin. Hannah does a great job working with my daughter showing her the proper technique and providing her exercises and activities to do in between lessons. You can tell Hannah loves teaching and music.

Hannah is a very dedicated and patient instructor. She always tries to keep the lessons interesting and fun, she also makes sure I take little stretch breaks in between exercises and always teaches me something new!

I've been studying classical piano for about 17 years now. I've played everything from Bach to Ravel. I cover all eras of classical music. Whether you want to learn the complex fugues of Bach, the beautifully difficult pieces of Chopin, or the lush sounds of Debussy. I spend a lot of time on technique as well, making sure you have the correct hand posture that will assure you to have the most technical gain in the long run.

About Mesrop

I am a music lover. I love anything and everything that is music. It has been one of the most consistent things in my life since I was a child, and there's nothing that makes me happier than making that a reality for someone else. I've spent a lot of time studying with different musicians, such

I am a classically trained violinist and singer songwriter who is looking to improve my piano skills. In our lesson I felt like I was able to get the type of thorough instruction I was looking for. We covered position, technical exercises, and classical pieces that I should be proficient in. It was apparent that Mesrop has a very deep understanding of this instrument and can approach it from the technical perspective I was looking for. I’m also happy that I can bring in songs from my songwriter project and get a composition perspective on those when I need it. It’s a very good balance for me as a performer and a songwriter. It’s important to find a teacher who you genuinely like, and Mesrop’s kind personality and professionalism are a great fit for me.
Daniel
I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!
Arsen
I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

With 25 years experience as a concert soloist on stages around the globe, it is so important to learn from a professional. Having studied for years with soloist Erick Friedman and pedagogue Sally Thomas, lessons comprise a teaching philosophy based on the principles of Jascha Heifetz and Ivan Galamian. With any student, learning the proper solid fundamentals that will hold up onstage for auditions right through to performing chamber music and as soloist with orchestras is so important and it is also about developing an enjoyable environment to the student to grow.

Lessons (in studio or online) are tailored depending on the needs of each student’s individuality as there is something so wonderful in enabling a student to find their musical voice and allow them to have fun and experience the challenge of musical growth.

Greg is amazing! I knew that as a parent with a musical background it would be tough to find a teacher for my son that actually ticked all the boxes - but Greg certainly does! His method of teaching is caring, open, and friendly. Even more importantly - his lessons actually keep my son interested in the music and playing his instrument! Greg is also very focused on technique which is hugely important to me. Highly recommend!

As a dedicated, fun, easy to work with, passionate flutist, our lessons are sure to be productive but also very enjoyable for the both of us. I have been a flutist for eleven years with professional study in music performance as well as woodwind repair. Do you have an upcoming audition? Not a problem! My approach to auditioning has led me to placing in the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra and the District XIX Honor Band in my younger years as a flutist, as well as placing in the Florida Intercollegiate Band, principal of the USF Wind Ensemble, and the USF Symphony Orchestra during my time as a college student. Do you want to master a certain technique? Not a problem either! As a private teacher, I come up with creative ways to master different skills. Do you just want to learn more cool flute music? Well this is the place for that too! There is so much I have to share with you, whether this is your first time picking up the flute or you have been playing for a while.

By teaching the fundamentals of music theory, he enables you to build a strong foundation. It's challenging for me to find time to practice but music lessons from Jimmy inspires me to make time to practice and dig deeper into music theory.
