Eric was a perfect match for my 13 year old son. My son liked the fact that Eric could show him cords to practice immediately.

Although I am primarily a saxophonist, clarinet is a secondary instrument that most saxophonists also have to know how to play. As a performer it is an absolute necessity that I be able to double on the clarinet and be just as proficient.

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are ...

Thank you for last two months clarinet lesson for Dorothy! He was very patient with my niece and focuses on the part that she is not familiar or good at. It was good experience for her to learn new songs with Matt and got some confidence through the lesson!

About five years ago, I added clarinet to my repertoire. I have much experience leading clarinet sections and coaching private students.

It is my philosophy that learning and playing an instrument should be an enjoyable experience, and it is my goal to spark a love of music in all my students. I will have you playing in no time, and will also teach you the theory behind music that is so essential for any musician to understand.

There are many different ways to cultivate your musical ability. Let's find out which way works best for you!

Most schools cannot take the time to help you find your ideal way of processing new information, whether it be visual, auditorial, kinesthetic, memetic, right brain/left brain, etc.

That's why I'm here! I pride myself on working with each individual student on the subtle ways that they learn and form healthy habits. If you have any questions about my teaching styles or methods please ask!

A little more about me:

I have over 10 years of guitar experience, studying under Jazz heavyweights Corey Christiansen, Oteil Burbridge, and Dan Miller. I pride myself in putting my students needs and wants above all else. I wish to impart a love for music onto my students that can only be cultivated by the bond a teacher and their student share, let us learn and grow together!

I feel Grant can be whatever you need! After the first lesson, I was confused with music theory and he made it clear by the second lesson. He is very concise with his words and I really appreciate it as some teachers can talk your whole session away. I also asked to work on strumming techniques and he was quick to come up with new ones for me as well as explaining how I can create my own. He's fantastic!

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!
