Manda S.

Boston, MA

I teach a wide array of levels. Whether you are picking up the instrument for the first time or you have been playing for years, I will work with your level and continue to help you improve.

About Manda

As a graduate of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory and Boston University Metropolitan College, Manda has obtained a diverse education in performance and performing arts management. As a clarinetist, Manda has performed in Illinois, Alabama, Ohio, and Massachusettes as a soloist, chamber musician, and in large ensembles. Her performances have been well received for their diverse programming and superior musicianship and technique.

Manda began teaching clarinet and piano in 2008 while she was still in high school. She began with beginning and intermediate musicians and quickly received the op
portunity to coach advanced players at one of Illinois' top high school band programs. While studying in Ohio, she began teaching clarinet and piano at the Joyful Noise Neighborhood Music School. There she continued to have one of the largest studio classes of both instruments for two years. Currently, Manda continues teaching in Boston, MA through Takelessons and Musika as well as through her own personal network.

Outside of her performances and teaching, Manda has held positions as a fundraiser and administrator at the Verb Ballet company in Ohio, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Massachusettes, the Brooke Charter Schools in Massachusettes, as well as the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Using her skills learned in these positions, as well as from working with mentor Dr. David Cutler, Manda uses an entrepreneurial and logistical mind set when running Manda's Music. You will be met with a professional atmosphere and efficently run lessons and administration.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have their at-home-work as well as practice techniques written out in a journal for their reference every week. We will begin working slowly so the student and I feel comfortable with each other, as well as with the instrument. Each student is different, so there is no timeline that is set to work from. We work at a pace that is comfortable yet continuously challenging for the student. Over all, Manda works to acheive her goal for students to gain an appreciation for music, and look forward to coming to lessons each week.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lesson spaces include stands, pianos, and chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide pens, pencils, metronome, tuner, and small repair equipment. I expect students to bring their instrument (for clarinet only), assigned music, assignment journal, and specified instrument equipment (i.e. reeds, swab, cork grease, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Classical music, popular music, and beginning jazz.

Manda meets me where I am, without judgement, and provides the feedback I need to get to where I want to go. She is flexible and incredibly responsive.

Stephanie M.

Boston, MA

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 refineme
nt 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

I went to New England Conservatory with Stephanie, and I have to say that she is one of the most supportive colleges I have ever met. She is extremely dedicated to her students, even to the point that even in social settings she will be texting her students words of encouragement and asking about their progress. She has an incredible work ethic and an infectiously positive attitude.

I hired Stephanie to work with me at Lynn Middle School as a woodwind technician for one semester, Spring 2012. Stephanie was always punctual, organized, and outstanding with the kids. She immediately set up a fun and safe environment for them to learn. Her work was excellent. We were preparing for our district Music Performance Assessment Festival and received Superior ratings. I have no doubt we owe part of that rating to her hard work. She really goes above and beyond, on one occasion I had to miss my afternoon classes for jury duty and she ran rehearsal without any problems. I wish we still had Stephanie in our district. I highly recommend her.

Tegan S.

Somerville, MA

Must supply own clarinet -- I would be willing to help find a student instrument. Can teach all ages.

Beginner clarinetists will learn to read music, and begin by learning the parts of the instrument, and the fundamentals of breathing and posture, with simple songs soon to follow.

Intermediate clarinetists will expand their repertoire and technique, and begin work on important orchestral excerpts and solos, with an eye towards competition. Bass clarinet may be explored at this point.

Advanced clarinetists will continue to polish technique and expanding their repertoire, with a focus towards audition preparation and competition. Bass clarinet, A clarinet, C clarinet, or any other member of the clarinet family may be explored further at this time.

About Tegan

I have taught private instruction and group instruction in such varied subjects as Music Theory/Ear Training, Woodwinds, and Crochet. I completed a B.A. of Music at University of Massachusetts - Boston, in August, 2014. As a working musician, I currently perform oboe with the Brockton Symphony Orchestra (Dir. James Orent) and the University of Massachusetts - Boston Chamber Orchestra (Dir. Dr. Jon C. Mitchell). I have most recently studied under Dr. Emilian Badea in both Oboe and Accordion, with Bulent Guneralp in Piano and Voice, and with Dr. David Patterson for Music Theory, Ear Training, Ar
rangement and Composition. Music has been an important part of my life for over 20 years.

I have also been sewing and crafting for over 20 years, and have done custom corsetry and Theatrical Costuming in addition to Knitting, Crocheting, Tatting, and Needle-pointing.

For information regarding my approach to instruction of a specific subject, please click on the name of the subject listed above for a full description.

As I do not have access to a car, I prefer that students come to my home studio in Somerville, or that they be within public transit options.

N.B. I own both a cat and a dog, so for those with allergies, it might be best to meet in your own home.

Sebastian M.

Allston, MA

I have been playing sax/clarinet for over 10 years. I regularly gig in the Boston area with a variety of bands ranging from Jazz, Funk, Hip-hop to Classical. I am finishing up my degree at the Berklee in sax performance with a concentration in Jazz. I like to find what inspires my students and build the curriculum around that. I think a healthy balance of theory and harmony is important while at the same time not forgetting about playing music, because lets face it, that's what its all about!

About Sebastian

Berklee alumni. BM in Saxophone Performance. I (Seba Molnar) have had the opportunity to study with world-renowned saxophonists George Garzone, Bill Pierce, Tia Fuller. I have been gigging on saxophone and clarinet for over 10 years. I Regularly play in Boston and around the east cost in a number of bands. I teach beginner to advanced students, and am comfortable in a variety of styles ranging from jazz and funk to classical. Core elements of my curriculum focus on learning songs, harmony, ear training, sight reading as well as instrumental technique and skills. Music is about having fun
and expressing ones self in a creative way. It is my goal to help my students understand the fundamentals of music so that they can not only enjoy the music they make but have confidence in them selves and their music.

Music Theory · In studio
Sebastian has been my theory teacher for the past three years and I couldn't be more pleased with who I picked to learn from. He's extremely humble, patient (that's a big one), and knowledgeable on every subject. I have never brought him a question he didn't know the answer to, that he couldn't explain in a way I understood! Music theory has always been an problem for me until now and I'm so pumped, I'm even more pumped on how fast I've been progressing. I highly recommend this teacher to others hands down!!! My little cousin has him for saxophone lessons and has already improved so much and loves Seba. Can't stress it enough - great teacher!

Alexander H.

Allston, MA

We will focus on good sound production as the basis for intonation and good tone quality from the clarinet. We will study a variety of different exercises to develop fluency on the clarinet in terms of music reading, and playing scales etc. There will also be some time spend on improvisation to develop an ear for music and a comfortable relationship with the clarinet.

About Alexander

I have been teaching and playing music professionally for a little over 5 years. I have performed a variety of genres from Indy, Pop, Latin Jazz, Avant-garde, Jazz, blues and rock to classical styles in Chicago, New York, Dallas, Tokyo, Seoul, and Bangkok. I graduated cum laude from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music before moving to Korea and then Thailand to teach and play music and to teach English, Literature, and ESL classes in a variety of schools. I taught music to students in middle school and high school at the International Pioneers School in Bangko
k, Thailand before relocating to Boston in late 2015. I approach music with a goal of creating a solid Aural foundation so that students can explore and enjoy any styles that they seek to master. I mix in a variety of schools of teaching, with a heavy improvisational anchor and ear training.
