I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

I am an orchestral clarinetist, K-12 music teacher and home school parent offering Christian clarinet lessons to students ages 10 and older. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA, a Master of Arts in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and I have studied with teachers who graduated from Julliard and Manhattan School of Music. I have also been influenced by the teaching style and signature sound of clarinetist David Weber, as well as Russian and Slavic traditions of teaching, all of which emphasize the art of clarinet playing - the combination of proper technique with fluent, beautiful musicality. I have a passion to help my students enjoy making music for the glory of God and offer lessons which are fun and inspiring!

My name is Andrea Trudeau. I am a homeschooling mother of four. We have been homeschooling for almost twenty years. It has been such a journey, learning and improving as we go. One great addition to our homeschooling is music. My children have all played instruments and sang in choirs. Driving around to all these activities was taxing at times. When we met David Knizewski and learned that he taught clarinet lessons online, I was interested, but skeptical. I liked the idea of not having to drive to one more activity, but I wondered how the quality of the lesson would be. Well, it has been working out wonderfully. It feels as though David is in the room. His warmth and charisma flow through the computer! David is a skilled teacher. He is able to explain and demonstrate even though it is all over the computer. I don’t know how he does it, but he does. Another blessing to doing this type of lessons is that we never had to stop, due to COVID-19. We were able to continue with the lessons, uninterrupted. I highly recommend it!
Libby
He is a very enthusiastic teacher who puts a lot of time and effort into the lessons. He breaks challenging things down in a way that is easy to understand and is very patient. I highly recommend him!
Lisa
I first met David Knizewski when he was hired as the music teacher at our PS-12 private school, Wakefield Country Day School. What I loved most about David as a teacher was that he respected his students enough to expect the best from them and also to expose them to the fundamentals of music theory and rich timeless classics and classical pieces. There seems to be a trend today to dumb things down in an attempt to always make make learning "fun." David helped the students understand that there is a deeper joy to be found in stretching themselves to put forth their best effort in learning these more challenging pieces and appreciating the beauty that results in doing something well. No matter how cringe-worthy (in some cases) the result might have been for these budding musicians, David always beamed with pride in their doing their very best. On a personal note, David was the first person who noticed that our daughter had a special talent for vocal performance. She was in elementary school at the time, and as her non-musical mother, this was difficult for me to perceive. He worked with her to help her develop good singing habits. She has had a number of voice teachers since those days and today she is double majoring in vocal performance and speech and hearing sciences in her freshman year in college. I wonder sometimes if we would have invested in her gift that has brought joy to so many, if David had not been such an encouragement to her in those early days. He also worked with my son personally with instruction in Clarinet. I was amazed at how much he learned in a very short time.

I've really been enjoying lessons and have been getting a lot out of them! Flexibility with scheduling concerns has also been well appreciated!
Baileigh B.
My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

My teaching philosophy centers around you, the student! Learning oboe is a wonderful journey to embark upon and I am here to get you started. We will go over the fundamentals of oboe and music overall. But most importantly, we will focus on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to play a piece of music for your family? Perhaps work on making your very own reeds! I am excited to be your oboe teacher, and I can't wait to begin.

About David
