I played in school bands and picked up more theory in college.
I have been a freelance performer and instructor for seven years and I bring a fresh and fun approach to the clarinet. The student will learn how to implement the fundamentals of playing with the goal of building those in to habit. I combine the Opperman and Marcellus methods to achieve superior tone, technique and staccato to help the student excel in all his/her musical endeavors. I have completed a clear background check with the Music Teachers Network, as well.
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, ...
I have a master's degree in clarinet performance, but an even better degree in teaching music.
Whether you are a parent of a beginning music student looking for one-on-one guidance for your child’s music education, a continuing clarinetist, or an adult learner seeking to fulfill a lifetime dream by playing the clarinet, I am committed to helping my students reach their goals. My 15 years of clarinet study and 6 years of teaching experience will provide skilled instruction to support each of my students’ unique learning styles, and achievements of individualized goals.
