Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

The thing I love most about playing clarinet is that there’s always something new to learn. In our clarinet lessons, I want us to embrace this mindset, and have fun!

I have 7+ years of teaching experience from beginning to to advanced levels. In our lessons, we’ll focus on building up fundamental skills, note reading, learning new pieces, and how to create thoughtful, virtuosic music.

The most important thing to me is to making my students feel welcome, heard, and to give them the platform to express themselves. Music is a tool and something that allows us to communicate our feelings in an entirely new way. As a teacher, I want to help them navigate that process and learn so many new things through clarinet!

Although I am primarily a saxophonist, clarinet is a secondary instrument that most saxophonists also have to know how to play. As a performer it is an absolute necessity that I be able to double on the clarinet and be just as proficient.

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are ...

Hi there! I am a recent music performance graduate of UT Austin looking to foster a passion for music in my students regardless of age or background. I have more than enough resources and experiences to form a teaching style that is catered to each of my student's specific needs and is both successful and rewarding. Getting to know my students on a personal level is a major part of my teaching style as I believe it fosters a gratifying learning experience. Experiencing young people grow and develop musically is one of the most fulfilling things to me and I strive to be a mentor that encourages and supports them through every aspect of their musical journey.

Here are some facts about me
• Started playing clarinet 12 years ago
• Performed multiple times in UT’s Wind Symphony, Wind Ensemble, and Symphony Orchestra
• Was a recurring member of the student run UT Lab Orchestra.
• Premiered several UT composer works in the Clutch Concert Series in addition to playing in the Cohen New ...

"In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor."

"Mary was amazing teacher for me, and she really sparked my passion for music. I had really just started clarinet when I began taking lessons from her, and I truly believe one of the reasons I am going into music is because of how she made me see it. In the short time that I was able to be her student I learned more than just the fundamentals, and have yet to find a teacher that I work with as well as I did with her. If I could take up lessons with her again, I would in a heartbeat."
