The clarinet is often referred to as the most challenging woodwind instrument. So, in lessons, we'll be sure to cover all the basics of tone production, breath support, musicality, and technique to ensure a solid foundation to build upon. I tend to teach these concepts through the use of various exercises and etude/method and duet books which are important for musical development and also fun!

Bill is the real deal! The reviews were dead on. Bill is a superstar instructor. He is energetic, engaging, and an amazing teacher who knows the instrument. You will make great progress. I highly recommend him!

Bill has a competent, easy manner that makes learning an enjoyable experience.
Micah
I started with Bill almost two years ago and I was at about zero on the piano. He's helped me reach the point where I can play some standards and even improvise a little over them, and I look forward to improving even more. We began in person but the transition to remote lessons has been seamless.

Bill is patient, attentive, and a whole lot of fun to work with. He has a positive attitude and a great sense of humor, and he backs it up with strong motivational skills to keep you practicing and putting in the work to reach your goals.

Oh, and of course, he's got some incredible chops! He's a talented multi-instrumentalist and a beast on the saxophone. His love of music and knowledge of jazz is sure to rub off on you.

Rick was professional, intuitive, and taught what I needed to learn, and NOT some preplanned generic lesson. I highly recommend him and I rarely recommend anything.

My background in clarinet performance is quite unique in that I began studying clarinet as a senior in high school, rather than as a middle schooler like most. This forced me to improve at a much accelerated pace as I worked through my undergrad degree in clarinet performance. This involved a very aggressive approach to practicing and performance that focuses on fundamentals like embouchure, articulation and breathing, while also studying a wide range of clarinet repertoire. I apply this approach to my clarinet teaching allowing students of all ages to make very quick improvement as a clarinetist while also learning about music theory, music history and developing a love for music that will last well beyond their time as my student.

I am an experienced orchestral clarinetist and bass clarinetist. I can help you or your student achieve their goals through individual planning. I enjoy working on fundamentals and utilizing performance psychology practices to improve the learning outcomes for the students. I believe that teaching clarinet is like playing a sport: there is a lot that goes into the work that is challenging the student while enjoying the process.

Erick is a thorough and patient teacher. My son's techniques have improved since he started taking lessons Erick. Erick even introduced editing music with Garage Band to my son. I like the range of topics he brings to his lessons.
My only complaint is Erick's lack of responsiveness to emails. He never responds to correspondence.

If you are considering online lessons with Erick, do it! He is attentive, considerate, kind, informed, proactive and intuitive. My 11 year old has been taking lessons with him since May 2020 and it has been a wonderful experience for our son and for us. We will continue to work with Erick for as we can.

Beginning my studies on clarinet, I understand the challenges which the instrument presents. I continue to perform the clarinet in big band and in the pit orchestra for musicals. Beginner students will learn basic foundation skills (such as embouchure, air, posture, hand position, tonguing techniques, and reed maintenance) in a fun environment where the student's needs come first. Intermediate students can expect to learn more demanding techniques (such as double tonguing, circular breathing, whole tone and octatonic scales) and selections from the clarinet repertoire in an encouraging but challenging environment.
