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.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few folk songs and as time goes on you'll be able to treble clef fluently. I specialize in classical music, typically use traditional band method books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: metronome, and laptop. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Robin is wonderful!

Robin was early to our first lesson. She worked with my son easily, he felt comfortable with her. She helped him with his fingering and gave tips for the difficult notes. We look forward to working with her for the next month.

We are going to HAVE FUN! I will be customizing your lessons to your needs, your skill level, your age, and most importantly, what you would like to learn on the Clarinet.

I will be including the basic fundamentals (for example, scales and arpeggios as warmup exercises when you practice) keeping them fun, not grueling or boring. Students interested in learning clarinet will be instructed in the basic principles of the clarinet such as proper finger placement and how to sit while playing. We will focus on both note reading as well as ear training (learning to play by ear) which opens up a whole new level when playing any instrument. Of course we will focus on the strengths of each student as everyone will vary in these areas. Some are stronger in note reading, whereas others are skilled and even gifted in playing by ear. My ultimate goal is for each student to have fun and enjoy this fun instrument.

I will help you sight read music (new songs) which is extremely useful should you ...

Such a fun enjoyable first lesson!
Lois K.
Rhonda was knowledgeable, fun and professional. She started where I was at and moved me along at my own pace. The music choices were great. Challenging but absolutely doable. Can't wait for my next lesson!!
Cody
Rhonda probably the best teacher I have ever had! for the many years that she taught me the violin, guitar, and trombone. she was always patient especially from the time I was young all the way till I was an “adult” preparing me for concerts and solo acts. Rhonda is a master of all and if you told her that you wanted to be the best triangle player or the best trumpet player she would make it happen. If there was an instrument that she has never used that you wanted to learn she would indefinitely buy it, become a master within the week and begin to teach you. She truly is the most genuine and talented person I have ever had the pleasure to work with!

As a group Clarinet and Flute teacher with Youth Orchestra of St. Luke's, Thomas Giles created an engaging and inspiring music learning curriculum for his students. At each recital all of his students were able to introduce themselves, the piece they have learned, and a bit of history or commentary to go along. Throughout online learning Dr. Giles continued a supportive and creative environment, even through zoom, where each of his students composed and performed their own piece. If you are looking for your student to come away from lessons with a high level of ability and confidence on their instrument look no further than Dr. Giles, they will have the added bonus of learning important skills such as public speaking and presenting. They may even take away some composition and arranging skills!

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!
