I teach all levels of Flute, Clarinet and Saxophone. Many of my students have gone on to win at All State programs and have made college and professional accomplishments under my guidance.

About Anthony
Anthony M., clarinetist and multi woodwind performer, has extensive experience as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician and teacher. As founder and co-director of the New York based, Rosewood Chamber Ensemble, Dr. M was a winning participant in the 1980 Artist International Chamber Music Award. For their prize, the Rosewood Ensemble premiered at Carnegie Hall’s Weil Recital Hall and went on to develop its own subscriptions series in Queens, New York, which lasted over twelve seasons. Dr. M. was artist in residence at the Bay View Music Festival in Petosky, Michigan for three summers and was solo clarinetist with the group Quintessence from 1990-1993. He has performed with the Phoenix Symphony, Northwood Orchestra, the Arizona Broadway Theatre Company, and is a member of the Symphony of the West Valley in Sun City Arizona, and
the Musica Nova Orchestra, where he plays clarinet and bass clarinets.
In addition to Clarinet, Dr. M. has performed on Recorder, Flute and Saxophone, both as a theatre musician and an ensemble member. He has performed with such artists as Ray Charles, Jamie Foxx, Doc Sevrensen, Lew Rawls, Wynona Judd and others in various groups and venues in Arizona and New York.
Anthony has recorded on the Summit, Con Brio, and Blue Butterfly record labels. He was featured on a Trimark Pictures Release playing the clarinet, bass clarinet and contrabass clarinet for the movie, “Warlock the Armagedon.”Currently, he is on the faculty of the Rosie’s House, A Music Academy for Children. Anthony holds degrees from Queens College of the City University of New York, the Manhattan School of Music, and a Doctor of Musical Arts from Arizona State University.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my lessons are centered on where the student is in his/hers musical development. I will in the first few lessons, assess the student's level and then proceed to recommend a course of study. I am process driven and always try to have my students understand my method so I do try to explain all my reasoning regarding the course of study I prescribe. Every student is different so I approach each individual with total respect for their unique ability and talent.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In addition to the standard music stands, metronome, tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Northwestern University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 8 years to 9, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before Flute, Clarinet or Saxophone.

*** Specialties ***
I am a certified Orff Teacher so I use process centered approach even in private lessons.

About Shawna
My name is Shawna and I am a musician and a music educator. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I began studying music when I was nine years old by taking clarinet and piano lessons. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. After graduating I became certified with the Arizona Board of Education and was a band director between two schools in downtown Phoenix before moving to South Miami, Florida in 2012, and started a Kindermusik program at the Miami Children's Museum. I am back in Phoenix and currently am the music teacher at an elementary school in downtown Phoenix and perform on clarinet within the community with local groups.

As a teacher my goal is to provide my students with an enriching musical experience, because every student can be a musician regardless of their age or ab
ility. I have experience teaching beginner to advanced studies on clarinet, beginner to intermediate studies on saxophone and music theory, and beginner studies on piano. Regardless of the instrument, I make sure that my students have an in depth understanding of their instrument. I explain all concepts regardless of how advanced in the simplest of terms so that my students can fully comprehend the objectives of every lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a friendly and approachable person who believes that building a good relationship with a student is the key to learning. My lessons are structured but are individualized to meet the needs of the student. I focus on the technical skills of the instrument as well as reading music. I will assign material for the student to practice on at home, but I am willing to work on music from school and allowing the student to have the freedom to choose what style/genre they are interested in performing. At the end of the every lesson the most important objective is that every student is playing music and enjoying the music that they are creating.

*** Travel Equipment ***
During a lesson I provide a music stand, metronome, tuner, and any extra teaching materials. My students are responsible for their instrument, accessories (reeds, swabs, cork grease, etc.), and ideally have a music stand and metronome for at home practice.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of students from beginner to advanced, and all ages.

I have experience using a wide variety of method books and styles in my teaching. I determine which I use based on the needs and abilities of the student.

Some lessons may include:
-Technique (scales, tone, articulation)
-Sight Reading
-Ear Training
-Music Theory
-Repertoire (band method, band music, classical, pop, etc.)

Instruction for fundamentals and techniques of clarinet as a primary instrument (or doubling instrument) in both classical and jazz styles.

About Stephanie
Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Stephanie, I am a teaching-artist from El Paso, Texas. I currently reside, perform and teach in the Boston and greater Boston area.

I am a recent graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music with my Masters in Saxophone Performance. I received my Bacherlors in Music Education from New Mexico State University.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two professions, whereby one
feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

I am devoted and dedicated to helping find each of my students strengths, weaknesses and style of learning. Once I have identified these traits, I am able to develop lessons and repertoire that helps each students become the most efficient learner and best musician they can be.

I pride myself in creating a fun and safe learning environment in which I establish a firm musical foundation for my students. Lessons include: scales, etudes, articulation, dynamic and sight reading exercises, standard saxophone repertoire, recording and analyzing performances, saxophone/music history lessons, and exploration of the sounds, genres and artists of the saxophone.

Simultaneously, my students cultivate many other skills while learning how to play saxophone. Students enhance their fine motor skills and ability to memorize, students increase their overall self-confidence and become self-sufficient and creative problem solvers. I am passionate about educating and empowering my students and I enjoy connecting with a wide array of musicians of all ages, playing levels and backgrounds.

Feel free to contact me to inquire about lessons, I hope to hear from you soon!

Stephanie

Stephanie is a patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic educator and collaborator who loves to perform and teach. I had the honor of working with her for nearly four years while we pursued similar degrees at New Mexico State University. She consistently brought a level of maturity and preparedness beyond her age to our rehearsals and practices. If I was limited to only one word to describe her, it would be "professional".

I am a professional clarinetist passionate about sharing the joy of music with others. I specialize in beginner to intermediate students of all ages. I teach students how to practice and why to practice in order to help them fall in love with the clarinet! Typical lessons involve scales, sight reading, and a piece that the student chooses. If you like having fun and learning about different kinds of music send me a message!

About Elia
I am a professional clarinetist with experience in classical, contemporary, and jazz music. I have studied clarinet for 12 years and recently graduated from New York University with a Bachelors of Music and a concentration in clarinet performance. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Music Performance, concentrating on clarinet performance, at McGill University. I have 3 years teaching experience and enjoy teaching clarinet students of all different ages and experience levels. I believe it is my duty to pass along a love for music to all students I encounter.

I tailor my lesson plans for each individual student, ensuring that students improve week to week. An interest and love for music is most important in studying clarinet. I find ways to show students how to have fun with their instruments and aim to help students become their own
best teachers. I believe tone and technique are equally important for clarinetists. I have students prepare scales and etudes for technique and start students with long-tone exercises to begin building the fundamentals to develop tone. I promise to help students discover the fun in music, while building their repertoire and skill.

Music has enriched every aspect of my life and I know it can do the same to yours! I look forward to teaching you and helping you to become a better musician!

This was my first clarinet lesson for ten years, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to accompany me. Elia was friendly, enthusiastic, and quick to figure out what I need and understand what I want to achieve. I look forward to having a lot of fun rediscovering the clarinet in our subsequent lessons.
