James B.

Private Clarinet Teacher

I normally use the Standard of Excellence method books for many of my students; however, I am open minded to adjusting to each individual student's musical needs, whether it be Jazz, Classical, or whatever style music the student is focusing on. Other excellent methods are the Ed Sueta Book, Rubank Method, Breeze Easy, Achievement in Excellence, and perhaps the First Division Method Book. For Drummers, I prefer the Haskell Harr Method, or the Buddy Rich Method Book, as well as the Breeze Easy Method. I always play my instrument along with the student so that he/she can hear how the music is supposed to be played in regards to the notes as well as the rhythm! This way, we all have fun learning!

Private Clarinet Teacher

As a performer I have played clarinet in various settings, musicals, jazz band, classical, and can therefore teach a variety of styles. In lessons we will cover basic music fundamentals but also work toward your personal goals. I believe it is important to find what makes music special to each student. Lessons should be fun and engaging! My students have auditioned successfully into regional bands and select bands at school every year. But we also play top 40 tunes or whatever interests them most.

About Kendra

I am a musician with an equal passion for performing and teaching. I have taught ages 8-80 at all levels from beginner to advanced. I believe in the importance of teaching a strong core of music fundamentals but I also want to find what makes music special for each individual student. I believe les

Clarinet is my primary instrument. I have played this instrument since I was 11 years old. I play classical, rag time, jazz, blues, marching, and hymns.

About Andrew

I have loved music since I was a child. I began playing clarinet when I was 11 years old and slowly picked up new instruments like the saxophone, harmonica, guitar, ukulele, flutes, whistles, kazoo, and others. I enjoy any style of music and have a desire to learn as many instruments as possible.

We love the fact that he tailors his lessons, homework, and incentives to the needs and interests of each individual student. We are confident that we could not find a better guitar instructor for our daughter.

Elliot J.

Online Clarinet Teacher

My music education began 27 years ago with private lesson on clarinet. 5 years later, I began studying guitar, bass, theory and improvisation.

I am a professional musician who plays guitar for a local cover band. I also sub for local groups in the area and have been asked to perform as a guest musician. This is also my 4th year as musical director of a brass band in which I am responsible for selecting and arranging their music, as well as directing then during live performances.

Studying theory and multiple instruments at a young age allowed me to become quite diverse as I am able to play or teach any style. Lessons are customized to each student to ensure that the fundamentals are mastered as well as focusing on what interests the individual student.

I have taught music for 7 years and my students have ranged in age from 6-45 years old.

About Elliot

I believe that all students need to learn the fundamentals of their instrument, but lessons should be fun and geared toward the individual. My lessons are customized to each student and are the perfect combination of fundamentals and studying the styles, artists, and topics that interest YOU!

Wow! Mr. Paul is correcting 35 years of bad habits playing the piano. Can't wait to see what lesson #2 has in store. Great teacher and very patient.

Paul 's positive attitude and excitement for making music is a major factor in a good instructor. His encouragement and wanting you to learn makes the lessons challenging. If you listen to his expert musical advise, practice what he teaches, you will see a vast improvement in your playing ability and understanding of music. He is patient and has a good temperament that makes learning fun. I know I have challenged him with my rhythm issues but I have progressed to a level in a short time that I am confident in playing with others and enjoy making music. Thanks Paul!

"Dimitry is an excellent clarinetist and professional colleague

I am a professional oboist with a great deal of experience. I have played in an orchestra with Dimitry for 5 years. I find his principal clarinet playing to be very fine. He is also a very good colleague. While my relation to him is not teacher-student, I judge from his warm personality that he makes an excellent teacher."

"Corinne is an absolutely wonderful instructor! I took private lessons with her in middle school, and she not only gave me the skills to master several auditions but refined my techniques and reformed bad habits that I had acquired throughout my clarinet “career”. She enabled me to build strong practice exercises that worked specifically for me after observing how I worked as a clarinetist. Our relationship continued as I moved into high school concert and marching band as she was our clarinet instructor for various workshops and sessions. She helped me learn to lead and instruct others in my section in the role of section leader. My growth continued (even after my private lessons ended) as she learned my strengths and weaknesses in an individual and group setting. Without Corinne, I definitely would not have the accolades and/or titles in the realm of music that I have now. As an instructor, Corinne doesn’t simply care about the short term goals or specific event to which you may come to her for assistance, but she cares about the musician you will be and techniques you will possess in the long term. She will work with you to find the best foundation upon which you can build up skills, a fine repertoire, and wonderful musicianship. I have had the pleasure of working with Corinne for over 5 years now in various settings, and I can say without a doubt that there is no one better for any clarinet instruction you may need!"

"Bill is a very talented, professional, reliable and kind teacher. He has been working with my son for almost a year now and we can definitely see the difference. My son is always eager to practice and learn when Bill comes over for the lesson. Since starting working with Bill, my son has surpassed all the kids in his junior high school's band group. This is particularly important and extremely helpful for when he auditions for a scholarship at the catholic high school that we are considering."

"I studied clarinet with William Rappaport when I was a graduate
student in music education at Georgia State University. He may be the
most deeply musical person I have ever known. My sense was that,
though he was a performer of the absolute highest caliber, he was
equally passionate about teaching.
When I initially contacted Bill to schedule lessons, I explained that
I was visually impaired. I wanted to share this information with him
upfront in the event that he had questions or concerns about teaching
me. I remember him saying clearly, “I am aware of the possibilities.”
That was all I needed to hear to feel comfortable entering his studio.
Bill encouraged me to take on any challenge in the clarinet
literature that interested me. He used every possible metaphor he
could think of to communicate ideas that were more easily accessed if
you could simply look at the printed page. He was always warm and
friendly, but focused, never wasting one second of our time together.
Following my work with Bill, I attended The University of Michigan
where, though I was a music education doctoral student, I was
instantly welcomed into one of the clarinet studios. Bill’s creative
work with me played an enormous role in making that happen. Now, I am
a community college professor, teaching a variety of classes including
a studio class for instrumental music students. I often find myself
using the same examples Bill employed with me to help my current
students. I am profoundly grateful for his unyielding commitment to my
growth when I was a student of his."
