Daniela is a wonderful teacher; while learning the basics of your keyboard, each lesson is enhanced with a new theme to give a greater understanding of this beautiful instrument. Daniela has helped me accomplished a lot in just five lessons; I hope to continue as long as I can!

I am a professional clarinetist and certified music teacher (grades K-12) with 10 years of private clarinet teaching experience. Depending on what point in the journey each student is it, our lessons will cover all aspects of playing the clarinet, from proper breathing to performing solo repertoire. I strive to give each of my students a toolbox they can use when they encounter problems while practicing. I want my students to become their own teachers and to think intellectually about music and their instrument.

About Theresa

Hello! I am a professional clarinetist and music teacher in Chicago. I have a Master’s Degree in Clarinet Performance from DePaul University where I studied with the Principal Clarinetist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and I received my Bachelor's Degrees in both Clarinet Performance and Music

First lesson went great!

When I began taking lessons with Theresa, the intent was that it would be a temporary arrangement until I could find a new advanced instructor in the area. However, Theresa's young, fresh perspective and enthusiastic attitude towards learning turned out to be exactly what I needed, and I ended up staying with her for about three years. She's incredibly talented and empathetic, which makes being her student both fun and satisfying. She has high expectations and really pushed me to challenge myself, which ended up taking my skills to a level of proficiency that I hadn't expected. She also understands the difficulties and frustrations that come with being a student and is great at working through them. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a clarinet instructor, whether you just want to play and learn for fun, or if you really need and want someone that will push and challenge you to develop your skills. She's been my most influential instructor to date and I will always value everything she taught me!
