I have been teaching private lessons on woodwinds, including the clarinet, for 23 years. I emphasize fundamental techniques of sound production, fingering and music reading to help you become the best player possible. I use various published methods for the clarinet depending upon your ability level. All styles of music are within your reach on the clarinet!

Norman is a great teacher. I have never played a guitar in my life, and he is helping me tremendously. I would recommend him to anyone.
Skylar N.
Wonderful instruction for my daughter who is autistic. Patient and has the ability to bring out the best in her. I never thought we would find someone who would be able to teach her.

I’m as new as a student can be, I have zero music training. Norman was very slow with his instructions and has plenty of patience, I never felt rushed or inadequate. He was very encouraging, only time will tell if I can pick it up..

I've been playing Bass since 2012 when my jazz banded needed me to jump in and I fell in love with it! With me teaching bass you will learn how to get different tones from your fingers, how to read chord charts, how to walk a proper bass line, different genres of bass, how to jump in with your own bands even if you don't know the song.

Dennis has been in the music scene for the last 25+ years.
Starting piano at the age of 9, he didn't know that piano would become a fixture through the years. Dennis has a classical training background which then led him to other styles of influence such as Jazz, Gospel, & Blues genres.

He holds a B.A. in Music from Portland Bible College and as a professional pianist he has taken on other musical roles; such as composition, arranging, and producer on many recording projects.

Dennis has something to offer to all that want to learn how to play the piano. Whether it's learning for fun, or pursuing piano passionately; his method of teaching is one that will stick with you.

"Playing piano is a lifetime experience; whether you do it professionally or for your own enjoyment, you will always learn something new. My hope is to pass along what I've learned to every student that I have the opportunity to teach."

Music Theory can be taught within an instrumental lesson (voice and piano) or in a lesson by itself. I LOVE music theory, and if you've never liked it or been able to grasp it before, it's time to change that! Beginners will master fundamentals such as note-reading, keys, time-signature, rhythms, intervals, scales, chords, and harmonic progressions. Intermediate to Advanced students will build on these skills and learn part-writing and score analysis (both tonal and atonal). Private lessons are an excellent compliment to music theory classes taught in schools, especially for any student who needs outside tutoring.

I am a composer with a Master of Music in music theory and composition from New York University.

About Natalie

Natalie is a NYU and BMI Workshop trained composer of songs, musicals, and concert music who has helped many songwriters find their voice and fine-tune their skills. She is particularly adept at identifying what is keeping a song from working (whether it be music, lyrics or both) and helping writer

"James teaches how to play the guitar with proper technique. He teaches music theory which is essential in becoming a true musician. He is also very patient and easy to learn from. If you are serious about learning how to play guitar this is the best place to start. I have had three lessons and already feel much more confident in my guitar knowledge and playing abilities."

"Ms. Melody was always very patient with me. She learned the way I played and accommodated to help me improve personally. During the two years that she was my piano teacher, my skills greatly improved. Playing the piano became more simple and music often came naturally. She is incredibly skilled and caring towards all her students, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. I was very sad when I found out she was moving out of my state and would no longer be my piano teacher. Ms. Melody is an amazing woman and her new students will be excited to learn to play the piano."

"If you have been looking for a great drum teacher, Michael is your last stop! He has the ability to communicate with the students and parents and make drumming fun. His students response to him very well and enjoy going to weekly lesson.
My son started with Michael when he entered 6th grade and is now a Junior playing for Marina HS Marching Band, Drum line, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band.
If you have the time and sit in a lesson with your children, you will soon realize that your money is well spent...not a wasted minute in that 1/2 hour lesson."

"I am a retired professor. It is always my dream to be able to sing some day, but I was intimidated by the technical requirements involved in singing until I met Linda. She is a wonderful singing coach, knowledgeable, honest, patient, and inspiring at the same time. Not only she has amazing voice, but also has very good ear and can immediately tell whenever one is off tune or not. Linda combines rigorous demand for perfection with warm encouragement and repeated demonstration of how to improve. I am blessed that I had her as my coach. After having just taken a course on bel canto offered by her recently, I feel that I really have learnt enormously about breathing, resonance, vibration, Italian pronunciation, and several beautiful songs, among others. I most strongly recommend Linda without any reservation to any one who is thinking to learn how to sing."

"My son had a very positive experience studying cello with Genevieve for two years before she moved to a new city for a job opportunity. We would have loved to continue studying with her! Genevieve was very positive and encouraging to my son and really helped him improve his bowing and fingering technique. She was always very patient but pushed just enough so that my son felt challenged and proud of the continual improvement in his playing. She also was very organized and always started and ended lessons on time. We highly recommend Genevieve as a cello teacher!"
