Eric has been great. He immediately found out where I was at in skill level and where I want to be. He then adds just enough knowledge to help me make the next step. I have learned a lot each lesson!

I have a lot of experience playing saxophone from highschool and I'd been a few years without playing. Corbin was great at reintroducing me to the exact concepts I'd been hoping to learn, definitely would recommend.

Corbin has been an ideal teacher for our 10 year old son. Our son has learned several songs from a book as well as parts of "Beat It." Michael Jackson is his favorite musician. That was in the first lesson and this rigor has continued with this energy for all five lessons. Corbin pushes him, supports and recognizes his efforts, and talks to him about other interests too. No dull moments. We are thrilled this is going so well.

Our 10 year old son has taken three lessons with Corbin, and loves the lessons. We are impressed with how much is taught in such a short amount of time and how our son is retaining all of it. He is reading music, playing songs, and enjoying it all.

Darcy C. Chicago, IL

Teaching private clarinet lessons was the way I discovered that I wanted to be a teacher. I began teaching private clarinet lessons to beginners while in high school, where I played with the Wind Symphony (top band) all four years under the direction of John Heath. I also played with the Philharmonic (top) Orchestra, and sat first chair in each during my senior year. I played solo clarinet for the DuPage Youth Symphony Orchestra, as well.

I have experience with IMEA auditions and music, and during my years of teaching, my students went on to place into IMEA honor bands, first division of solo and ensemble competitions, and private youth orchestras. I also have experience coaching students on audition pieces as well as solos for competitions, technique, and music theory.

I can provide recommendations on music stores, books, reeds, and more. Whether you want help with music for your band or orchestra, supplementary lessons to go beyond school music education, coaching on a solo, ...

About Darcy

Hi, there! My name is Darcy and I am a teaching artist in Chicago. I've been teaching and tutoring for eight years and I'm a graduate of Northwestern University. I love teaching because I love to get to know people and it is extremely rewarding to help others succeed at their goals. I pride myself in being personable and adaptable to different learning styles, and an upbeat, positive person. Not free during my listed times? Chances are, we can work something out. I teach a variety of ages, levels, and subjects: the through line is that I truly love teaching. I teach drama to kindergarteners and high school English classes, clarinet to middle school students, ballet to three-year-olds, and tap to adults older than I am. I often teach large groups but find it most rewarding to work ...

Darcy is a warm, thoughtful, patient teacher. She has a very calm demeanor and connected immediately with my 11 year old daughter. She gave each lesson 110% and I highly recommend her.
Yuen Yee R. Chicago, IL

Every teacher has different teaching approach and philosophy. I'd say every teacher that I met tries their best to help their students to learn and develop as a musician and a well-rounded person. I love teaching and sharing with students. I help my students to gain interest in music and art and enjoy playing music. In my lessons, I aim to help my students to become independent in music playing and learning so they can keep playing music for the rest of their lives with or without a teacher.

Jon N. Skokie, IL

I have a master's degree in clarinet performance, but an even better degree in teaching music.

About Jon

Jon N. was born and raised in Mexico City and is proudly an American citizen. He has been performing since the age of three, on several instruments, studying music since fourteen, and still takes lessons to this day. What's not to love? He is proud to teach at all levels, including many professional musicians with master’s degrees, adult beginners, and of course, kids of all ages between 8 and 75. They are encouraged to select the music they want to learn, so we have worked on classical music and original compositions, which I also coach, jazz, blues, pop, rock, the Great American Songbook, reggae, seven different kinds of Jewish music, and other ethnic music from all over the globe. Frequently the younger students will request a tune I've never heard, but I magically transform ...
