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.

Private Clarinet Teacher

I started playing the clarinet when I was in 4th grade, and I still have the same instrument!

I've been teaching clarinet for over 30 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to assemble your instrument, place your reed correctly, and know where your fingers go. As time goes on you'll be able to read music and play simple songs. Any beginning clarinet book will get us started. In addition to your clarinet and book, you will also need extra reeds, cork grease, and a cleaning swab. As you progress, a a metronome may be helpful. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Linda

I have been a public school music teacher for 30+ years. I am an optimistic, enthusiastic person, who will help you learn music reading in addition to music playing. I started on piano as a young child, and studied clarinet from elementary school through college, where I focused on french horn. I h

I’m taking beginner cello lessons with Linda.

She is super positive and encouraging and meets me exactly where I am in my learning and goes from there.

She asks what I want to do, points out when I miss things (like not taking a proper pause), and teaches me new skills (theory, now technique, etc.)

Very positive experience! After four weeks I can play cello while site reading the bass clef (I knew how to read piano music but not the bass clef very well).

I’m going to renew my lesson subscription with Linda!
John R.
Linda was awesome, very patient with a total beginner with not only cello but also playing music. She is great teacher , i can tell that from our first lesson.
Steven
My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

I individualize each students instruction. I keep in mind the students and parents goals and schedule when I make this plan.

About Harry

I started playing clarinet in the school band at age six. My father was a musician, and he thought that playing in the school band would help me overcome my extreme shyness. I remember my first music lesson. I really liked my teacher. He came to my house, and he helped me to care for my clarine

Harry helped my daughter polish up some pieces for an audition. She was nervous and didn't feel fully prepared. Three visits from Harry gave her some great instruction and the confidence to go in and nail her audition!
Tracy L.
My son has had three lessons so far, and we have been very impressed. Mr. Grainger does a great job of encouraging my son through positive feedback, making lessons fun, and giving him very specific, targeted feedback to improve his playing. He has been very flexible and responsive to our changing needs. I highly recommend him.

I am an experienced Clarinet teacher of 5 years available for eager students! Whether you are picking up Clarinet for the very first time or you are at a more advanced level of playing, I structure my lessons so that you learn what you want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technical ability and excellent musicianship. I specialize in teaching concert band style music, however I can teach jazz styles as well. For beginning students I typically use Measures of Success Book #1. For more advanced students I recommend Standard of Excellence book #2 and book #3.

Vivian makes learning the clarinet fun and I look forward to every lesson. She has already taught me new notes and songs after just five lessons. She was also open to incorporating music from my favorite movies (Harry Potter) into my lesson plans. The music is more advanced for me and so I really appreciate Vivian’s patience and her demonstrations so I know exactly what to play for each song. I’m glad to have Vivian as my teacher.
Carolyn
My 12 year old son has been taking clarinet lessons with Vivian for almost two months. At his first lesson he could barely play one note. I've been so impressed with his improvement every week. My son says, "she's very helpful and understanding." We highly recommend!

I work with my students to help them develop their own expressive musical voices. We will use technical exercises, etudes, solo pieces, and other repertoire to give students the knowledge and tools to approach any challenge!

I have 15 years of experience teaching all levels of clarinet students, including everyone from absolute beginners to advanced collegiate players. My junior high and high school students regularly place highly in state Solo & Ensemble and All-State festivals, and have been accepted into top university music programs. My college students have won national competitions, been accepted into summer music festivals, and have been placed in major graduate programs with full scholarship.

I look forward to getting to know each student individually so that we can work together to make them into the best clarinetists, musicians, and artists they can be!

I have many unique experiences as a woodwind player and a wide range of skills that I’m happy to pass onto my students! In particular, I believe that in order to perform it’s necessary to fully understand your instrument and I do not accept “pseudo-explanations” of what proper technique is or should be. I can help you learn anything you want about the saxophone by presenting information in a personal and easily digestible way. This is done through practice as well as fun activities such as engaged listening and controlled experimentation!

"I loved lessons with Aage, his spunky attitude and constant encouragement is second to none. Learning with Aage, I didn't realize how much he really offered until I became a teacher myself. He was able to foster my love of music while still giving me the skills I needed to win the Idaho State Solo Championship in 2007. I was also exposed to music written long before the clarinet was created and with his encouragement, participated in numerous honor groups and music related community service."
