Have worked for Atlanta public schools as a band director since Fall 2002.

Private lessons are taught on piano, guitar, and all the band instruments.

I also have a deep passion for Disc jockeying with a bias towards reggae and dance music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning the techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play
in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

*** Specialties ***

Clarinet studies prepare students to advance in bands and ensembles. I improve embouchure and breathing support. I can provide coaching for performances and competitions.

About Letha
With a performance degree from the University of Georgia, teaching certification from Georgia State and over 25 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of instructional resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons include a warmup, music theory work, vocal or instrumental technique and then a vast selection of song repertoire to support new ideas in both technique and theory. Students are directed to watch or listen to examples of master performances in their field of studies. Clear weekly goals are made between lessons and I am always encouraging! Whatever life throws at you during the week doesn't have to stop your studies cold- we will come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a small Protools setup with microphones and a Kurzwell keyboard. I
like to be able to go online for some resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I regularly use the internet in lessons as well as standard published educational texts.

*** Specialties ***
I have been told that I am especially good at helping people make the jump from playing by rote to reading from the page. In vocal instruction, I am familiar with three schools of technique: the psycho-imagery school, the "anatomical" school, and the Italian "open throat" approach. My background in acting also contributes basic vocal projection techniques to vocal training. I am comfortable with all genres of music, including pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, jazz and opera. In instrumental studies, I am a woodwind doubler, reading fluently and transposing on-the-spot . As a jazz and gospel artist I improvise primarily on the flute and saxophone. My piano skills are equivalent to a second-year college piano major. I can improvise accompaniments as well as read piano scores. In addition to being a certified teacher in Georgia, I attained national certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004.

My daughter has truly enjoyed having Letha as a clarinet teacher. She has been able to strengthen and improve my daughter's tone, scales, posture, transitions between low to higher notes, and overall technique. This has led to her improvement and enjoyment of the school band. Letha's teaching style has fit well including providing positive feedback on the spot. 'Having Letha come to our house is also a great benefit to our schedule.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few folk songs and as time goes on you'll be able to treble clef fluently. I specialize in classical music, typically use traditional band method books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: metronome, and laptop. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Robin
Hi, there! My name is Robin L. and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn to play their band instrument for solo competitions, or just for fun! I went to Roberts Wesleyan College and earned a degree in music education (K-12) in 2016. I'm an energetic and fun person. I believe that with hard work and dedication, you can accomplish anything; but I also believe that the process should be fun! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Don't trust Robin as your kids teacjher!

When we stumbled upon her - we read her reviews and ended up in requesting a session with Robin. I gave a schedule and Robin agreed to that. I was very specific in setting the expectation with take lessons that i am looking to utilize summer vacations as much as possible. Robin takes the first lesson (which was an ice breaker for my 6 year old daughter, as first lesson cannot be more than that). But as soon as the lesson was over, Robin sends the initiation that she is out for 2 weeks. Not only that, the very next class she just abruptly cancels the session. She very well knew that how keen we were for her to cover up as much ground as possible. TO explain a 6 year old such a behavior is not easy. It's negative attitude from Robin and had to somehow makeup something for my daughter. We ended up canceling all her sessions. Robin did not even feel necessary to call and schedule in such a way that its a progress for my daughter. I wrote 2-3 emails and we called 3 times. She did not respond to any of our calls. I you are looking for your child - i would not recommend Robin to be trusted. Just keep away from her.

I focus on the fundamentals and on having fun playing the clarinet. In the first lessons we will concentrate on developing good embouchure and hand position so you can create a beautiful sound. We will work on a variety of music, depending on your interests. I can help you master your parts for school bands and ensembles. I welcome students at all levels, and make sure that all of my students recognize the progress they make at each lesson. I look forward to working with you!

About Alessandro
Hi, my name is Alessandro. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from DePaul University School of Music and I have been teaching lessons since April 2015. I am currently studying for my Master's Degree at DePaul as well. I think there are two important parts of taking clarinet lessons: learning the fundamentals, and having lots of fun. I focus on basics like embouchure, air, and tone to help you develop good technique. I will also work with you to select music that you like and that you will be excited to play.

Recently fixing up and old clarinet belonging to my mother, I have learned the ins and outs of the instrument and can give beginning instruction on this fun and beautiful sounding instrument!

About Syarra
With over 10 years experience playing and loving music, I am excited to introduce teaching to my career! I currently coordinate one of the most successful music schools in Clearwater, and teach around 10 private students. Briefly teaching during my high school years, and now teaching privately for about a year, I believe my passion is in teaching music. Currently, my students range from the age of 4 to the age of 16. During my high school years, I specialized in helping and guiding special needs children.

My goal for the next 5 years is to become the best music teacher I can be, and hopefully open and run my own music school. My focus when teaching lessons is not just to teach my student how to play their instrument, but teach them the ins ans outs of the instrument itself. I have a focus on music theory, but most importantly I want t
he student to have fun and love every lesson they take!

I am excited to share my passion and knowledge of music to the Tampa Bay area!

Syarra made her flash cards to help her learn the notes and my daughter enjoyed her so much this is the first time she has ever done practice on her own including school & cheer.

Katie has been my daughter's flute instructor for 3 years (one year as her band instructor and 2 years of private lessons). She is extremely professional, always communicates my daughter's progress, challenges her to improve, and makes the lessons a lot of fun. My daughter loves taking lessons from Katie, and under her tutelage she has improved in her ability and love of music. I would highly recommend Katie as an instructor.

I have 9 years experience in teaching private lessons and 7 years in the band classroom. I specialize in clarinet lessons for all ages and levels. I tailor lessons to the needs and goals of each student and will assign materials based on that goal such as playing in band or orchestra, preparing for an audition, performing for their church or community, or just to learn a new skill. I recommend beginners take weekly 30 minute lessons and increase the lesson time as they advance. I like to make lessons motivating and often end lessons on a high note with a fun duet.

About Morgan
My name is Morgan and I am a clarinetist and music educator. I recently moved to Atlanta from Houston, Texas. While in Texas I taught middle school band for 7 years and performed clarinet with the Houston Civic Symphony and Houston Symphonic Band. Many of my students are successful making honor band and earn top ratings at solo and ensemble.

I have a Bachelor of Music in Clarinet Performance and a Bachelor of Music Education from Florida State University. In addition to playing and teaching clarinet, I love spending time with my husband and 1 year old twins. I look forward to meeting you!

Morgan is a fantastic clarinet player and teacher!!! She is one of the most patient people I know - which is a great quality for being a mother of twins! :) :) - and she has a lot of experience teaching in schools and privately. Her teaching will give you the skills to succeed on your instrument and bring confidence to your playing, all while being an encouraging mentor. In Texas the standards are very high for music students and I am sure that she will bring that level of excellence to the Atlanta area or wherever you are!

Morgan came to our home to provide clarinet lessons for our daughter who was a 5th grader at the time. She is an excellent teacher.
Morgan is reliable, patient, and always encouraging. At the end of each lesson, they played a duet together which was always my favorite part to listen to. Our daughter learned so much from Morgan and it definitely helped her prepare to play in the school band. We highly recommend her!

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile.

I have taught clarinet lessons to children from ages 10-18 for 8 years. I take care to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of each child, and I design lesson plans for each student using those observations.

During the lesson, I cater my teaching techniques to the skill level and personality of each student. I also take notes on a Google Doc file detailing what we work on and what the student should practice for the future. The Doc link is sent to parents and to the student, if applicable.

I have a Bachelors degree in Music Education and Music Composition from the University of Georgia. My clarinet professor, Dr. D. Ray McClellan, is a triple Juilliard graduate, and I have studied with him for 6 years.

I have completed Levels I and II of Orff-Schulwerk teacher training, meaning that I specialize in teaching music through movement, drama, and speech. I want each student to have an active and fun music making ...

About Corinne
I'm a clarinet playing, elementary music teaching, high school clarinet directing, performing, dancing teacher with a wild imagination.

I have taught students from 5-18 since I was in high school myself, and I truly love it. I love watching individuals succeed, and I love feeling like I play a part in the process.

When teaching lessons, you may not find me sitting down. Sometimes we'll stand up and move, conduct, create, and choreograph to better understand the music we're working on. Sometimes we'll lie on the floor to work on breathing exercises. Sometimes we'll draw imaginary paintings on the wall to find deeper meaning in what we're learning. It's not just about the notes and rhythms. They are extremely important, but that is not where music ends.

My goal is to make you excited to see me and play your instrument. It is exci
tement and drive that will help you succeed.

When I'm not teaching, you can find me playing my own instruments by myself or with my band. You can even find me breaking out my tap shoes to dance and play my instruments at the same time.

I am excited to work with you!
