Michael is quite special. He is taking this 57 year old who has never played an instrument nor read music and trying to work a miracle! Three lessons in, I know that this is going to be fun learning with him. I also know that I will be able to play the Saxophone soon. An inspiring teacher!!!

Michael is an extremely talented musician, and an equally talented instructor. He challenges me every week with new material to practice, but also keeps the lessons light-hearted and fun.

Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

A woodwind player since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning clarinet lessons.

Why TakeLessons?

Clarinet Lessons

The clarinet is a popular woodwind instrument found in classical music, orchestras, concert wind bands and many big band jazz groups. The best way to learn how to play is to take clarinet lessons. There are many varieties of the clarinet, and one effective way of selecting your clarinet is to first know the differences between the four different types: soprano clarinet, alto clarinet and bass clarinet. From here, you can choose what kind you would want to play and devote your time to studying with an instructor who can help you achieve success. If you are a beginner, clarinet teachers will focus on the fundamentals of proper breathing, tonal quality, timing as well as various techniques used in playing clarinet. They will also teach you how to read clarinet music and help you decide what style of playing will best suit you. If you are an advanced player then music theory may be incorporated in the study to help you progress and become a more talented clarinet player. Having to study an instrument is always more enjoyable when you are learning in a comfortable environment. To help ensure this type of environment all of our clarinet coaches are professional and good-natured so you can feel comfortable placing your confidence and trust in their hands. So sign up for clarinet lessons in your area today!
