My seven-year-old's first exposure to instrumental music lessons has been with Manda. My daughter is sometimes easily discouraged when things don't come easily, but Manda is keeping her motivated by being enthusiastic about the music and my daughter's (sometimes slow!) progress. Her relaxed, supportive manner may make a child forget that she is really learning a lot!

My daughter started taking clarinet lessons with Manda last year when she was 9. She is now also taking beginning piano also because Manda's been such a patient and nurturing teacher. She's very calm, proceeds at the student's own pace, and often goes above and beyond what I'd expect her to do. She builds rapport with students and takes an interest in them beyond their music, which I think builds a student's enthusiasm for the lesson.

Manda has been a great clarinet teacher for my son. While other teachers have struggled to maintain his focus, this has never been an issue with Manda: she is patient but firm and keeps him on track and motivated in a way that works well all around. My son looks forward to his lessons every week and has taken great pride in learning to play.

I have had dozens of clarinet students over the last several years, many of whom have joined honor bands and gone on to major in music, others who want to play only for themselves. Whatever your motivation, I will tailor your lessons to what you want to achieve!

Cory has been teaching my 11 year old son for only five lessons in Oboe and we couldn't be more than happier! Her calm and patient demeanor works well for my son. Cory is very knowledgeable and instructs my son without making it too overwhelming for him. Few weeks back, we had some company over and our son wanted to play a short piece for our guests. Everyone was so surprised that he only had two lessons and could play a melody (completely Cory's doing)! We feel lucky to have found a great instructor!

Vocal lessons with Tom

Tom is a great teacher. He is very encouraging and gives great advice on how to improve. Without his encouragement I do not think I would have tried out for the community choir. I made it through the audition and am back singing with a great group of people.

What a difference a few lessons can make

Our daughter is in middle school and is playing in a band with about 20 other clarinets. At the first testing, she was seated in the middle of the pack. When she asked to take music lessons, we looked online and found Mikaela. Within a few lessons, Mikaela was able to find small things that made a huge difference. Now not only is our daughter playing better but has a lot more confidence with the clarinet as well.

Mikaela is very personable and patient. She really seems to care about our daughter and makes the lessons enjoyable. Not sure that we could have found a better instructor for our daughter!

I've been teaching clarinet for five years now. I specialize in getting beginners started with good habits. Proper embouchure and hand position make all the difference in the world in how well a clarinet player will do as they advance. It's MUCH easier to build good technique from the start than to try to go back and break bad habits, so let's get started on the right foot!

I can't say enough positive things about Megan. She works with both of my sons, teaching them piano. They have extremely different personality types and learning styles. It is amazing to see her adapt, creating the best learning environment for each of them. She has given them so much more than knowledge of how to play. She has given them a love for creating music.

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.
