After studying at Cass Tech High School and Wayne State University in MI, I have enjoyed teaching privately, in groups, and at churches, I have performed vocally and instrumentally throughout the US and in 8 foreign countries, and taught at public, charter, and private schools. It is important to tailor each lesson to a student's individual needs and ability to ensure that their experience is as rewarding as possible!

VERY helpful first lesson. Almost immediately, Glenda was able to listen to my playing and make useful suggestions for improvement. It was a very good lesson. I look forward to learning even more under her skillful tutelage. A GREAT choice for anyone looking to master the Hammond organ.

Salem, MA

I have been playing various woodwind instruments for almost my entire life. I focus on tone, intonation (staying in tune), and the confidence needed to be a strong melodic player.

About Frankie
In addition to being a Berklee College of Music Graduate, I have a Masters in Music Education, and currently completing my Doctorate in Music Education from Boston University, I have been playing for over 30 years.

Lessons are written and tailored to you. I use music, printouts, and instructional material to make sure you progress as you should.

I have spots available every day of the week, so I'm confident that we can find something that works for both of us.

I know that learning to play any style of music whether it be Jazz, Blues, Soul, Motown, Funk, or Rock is a challenge, but with help from an experienced educator, your instrument becomes a rewarding lifelong enjoyment.

Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to speak with you regarding any questions you may have.

I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

I have taught beginning clarinet in my band programs for 6 years now. I have a proven method that will work for any absolute beginner at any age. We will talk about tone production, reading music, reeds, and many other fundamental skills needed to get you off the ground playing the clarinet. After the 1st year of lessons, I would recommend you move to a teacher who plays primarily on the clarinet.

About Matthew
Hi, I am Matt. I am a band director in the Fort Smith, AR area. I am in my 7th year teaching band and love every minute of it. I have recently decided to return to teaching private lessons, and would love to help you with your auditions, festival music, AP music theory exams, or just learn some skills on becoming a better musician. Outside of the audition music, we continually work tone production, range, and confidence on any wind instrument. In college I had a small guitar studio as well. Some of those guitar students have gone on to study at the collegiate level and gig around town today! I have taught beginning band for 4 years now on all wind instruments including percussion. I have a firm grasp to provide solid fundamentals to start your musical journey and get you off to a great start. Feel free to ask me any questions about lesson
s.

June 2012 - June 2015 I was the head band director of Waldron High School in Waldron, AR. We won several awards through our marching and concert band program. I also ran after school lessons in which many students made our region honor band.

June 2015 - Present
I am currently the head director at Trinity Junior High in Fort Smith. I run a 7-9 band program that includes both marching and concert band seasons. Our student involvement is quite high as our band program serves about 50% of our total student population (about 90 kids served daily on all wind instruments). My band here has received many superior ratings, and many students make our region honor group, and go on to excel in high school band programs in our area.

Urbandale, IA

View Full Profile

I have played the clarinet for 18+ years. I have performed with local (SEIBA), collegiate (Central College & University of Iowa), and state (Iowa) honor bands with the clarinet. I specialize in beginner students (all ages) who are just just learning and beginning with the clarinet. For students that don't know if they want to play the clarinet, I can provide use of a beginner clarinet (it will stay at my home, and it is a well loved and used marching band clarinet, so please know, it's not in great shape). Lessons take place in my home office; message me to see if this might be a fit for you.

About Victoria
Note: If you are interested in lessons in the Des Moines area, please message me about my in studio lesson availability through TakeLessons. Availability for in studio lessons varies seasonally due to home projects.

Hi, there! My name is Victoria and I can't wait to meet you! I am available for in-studio (my home) and online lessons. I have been playing the clarinet for over 21 years and teaching music since 2017. I teach all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced. Please note that I take a limited number of advanced students. Please message me to see if I have availability for you/your advanced student. Please also take a moment to view the videos on my profile as I answer some frequently asked questions.

I love helping my students work toward their individual goals, overcome challenges and have fun with musi
c. I have helped students audition and make the Iowa All-State Band, play songs that students want to play/perform, help with memorization of scales, teach beginner fundamentals of music and the clarinet, helped students audition for college music programs and for solo/ensemble contests. I work with your goals and help craft a lesson plan that is specific to you.

I have performed with local (SEIBA), collegiate (Central College & University of Iowa), and state (Iowa) honor bands with the clarinet.

At times I can accommodate additional times other than what is listed.

Fun Facts:
* I have a rescue dog whose name was Princess in the shelter. I couldn't take her "title" away, so her full title is "Princess Molly of Merriam" - Call her Molly :)
* I also play the tuba, flute, marimba/bells, valve trombone & piano
* I love home projects
* Did you watch my video? You'll see that I have worked with some pretty incredible accounts (work related, not music related)
* I took my passion for performing and let it help me pay for college!

I'm on my third lesson and really enjoying them. Victoria and I have a great rapport and the lessons are filled with learning, laughter (mostly because I can laugh easily at my mistakes, not HER laughing at me!!), and they are so fun! I'm doing super well because she is able to tailor her teaching style to my learning style. I can't say enough how much this helps. Looking forward to the rest of my lessons!

Wonderful teacher! My daughter was a bit unsure about taking online lessons and continuing with the clarinet, but she is enthusiastically practicing between lessons now and making way more progress than she did with in-person lessons at school. We're so lucky to have Victoria as a teacher and highly recommend her.

Even though these are clarinet lessons you'll be taking, I would be using the clarinet as a tool to bring you into the beautiful world of music. That means that other than technical things such as sound and fingerings, we'd be talking about what makes the music that you're playing great and how to best convey it in your playing. Come study with a professional performing clarinetist with extensive teaching experience in all ages and levels. Whatever music style you're into (classical/jazz/klezmer...), I'd be happy to focus on.

About Moran
Hi! I'm a Juilliard graduate clarinetist (BM, MM, AD), currently on the Juilliard Pre College Division faculty [chamber music] as well as at Vassar College (teaching clarinet). I perform extensively as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. Although I'm mostly classically trained, I play jazz and klezmer as well.

I look forward to meeting you!

Perhaps the best teacher I’ve ever had—in any discipline, at any age. When I first began two years ago, I couldn’t read a note of music and had never played any instrument. Since then, thanks to Moran’s patience and guidance, I can play with confidence at a level I never imagined. Wonderful, kind, yet demanding teacher who enjoys teaching and takes great pride in the progress of her students

I have approximately twelve years of experience learning and playing the clarinet. It could be my main instrument to teach due to my years of experience. If you desire to learn the clarinet or have any questions about clarinet theory, please contact me.

About Jeremiah
I am excited to begin teaching lessons in music, Bible, and academics. I have the knowledge necessary to teach my students beginning and intermediate levels of music and Bible as well as offer help with academic needs.

I am a graduate of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO and have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Church Music and Bible. Whether my students want to develop an interest and love for music, Bible, and/or academics, I want to be an example, mentor, and friend and show them that learning is fun and has value. Within professional standards, I do not intend to convert students, however I would be glad to share my faith and knowledge to those who express interest in learning more.

Though I have limited experience in teaching, I have the knowledge and skills necessary to explain concepts. My future plans include becomin
g certified in multiple instruments (piano, voice, and possibly clarinet and guitar) through the Music Teacher National Association (MTNA) so that I can possess more credentials and better credibility in my future teaching endeavors.

Please consider me as your instructor so we can begin this learning journey together.

Finally reading and basic music theory is the essential skill that separates men from minnows in the sense of making music consistent. The discipline necessary to do this is minimal but important.
I trust that you will excel in my class because my methods are tried and true. If at the end of the first lesson you feel you will not progress on your mission with me I completely understand but do think that will be unlikely as I want to share with you my deepest thoughts on how this can be done and in return you will receive the best education possible.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to providing you with some great lessons!
