I studied clarinet from elementary school to high school. I was in concert band and marching band for nearly 10 years. Here, we will study technique, reading music, understanding finger placement, theory and more.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

I teach clarinet primarily through the tried and true Rubank method. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed selection, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for clarinet to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production). You can find more information about me and what I do at caseymusicservice﮳com.

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

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.

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.

Learning to play the Clarinet should be fun and enjoyable. I've spent many years learning and perfecting my craft and I know from personal experience that if you aren't having fun, you won't learn nearly as much. We will go at your pace and I will never give you more to work on than you have time/are ready for.

About Roddy
I began playing Clarinet in middle school band. I quickly discovered that music was what I wanted to do with my life. Through years of hard work, I began to make that dream a reality. I studied Clarinet Performance with Robert Chesebro at Furman University where I earned my Bachelors degree in Music Performance. I began teaching at this time and loved every minute of it. From there I went to LSU for graduate school and studied with Robert DiLutis.

I joined the US Army as a Clarinet player and spent 4 years performing with the 82nd Airborne Division All-American Band and Chorus.

I love teaching and I love making music. I've had many different experiences that I believe contribute to my teaching style in positive ways. My only goal in teaching is the success of my students. If you learn anything new from me then I consider that a s
uccess.

Let's make music together!

Roddy is a super clarinet instructor. Our son was seeking audition prep and building confidence in his technique. Roddy was always on time, polite and encouraging. He is a great communicator with children. He provided helpful guidance on the use of complementary tools such as a metronome. He recommended adjustments on the instrument which provided optimal play and made it easier for our son to achieve his goals. We would highly recommend Roddy as a Clarinet teacher without reservation.

I'm Roddy's Mother, so I'm biased, but when he was growing up, we would watch a movie, & then he would play the music from the movie we just watched. With no written music. He's 'a very talented musician, & everyone says so.

My teaching style heavily emphasizes clarinet pedagogy, which is the art of teaching students tailored to their specific learning style. I welcome students with learning disabilities like ADHD and Dyslexia, and seek to provide fun and innovative musical learning for each student.
I focus a lot on classical musical technique with a flare of fun in jazz and modern methods. This means that students will work on basic skills like scales and method books, but also fun songs and solos.

I have two degrees in clarinet performance, From Cedarville University and Wright State University and also teach through professional music studios in the Cincinnati area.
I specialize in teaching at the public schools during students band hours and work with various band teachers in the Dayton and Cincinnati area to ensure that their clarinet students are receiving the best private music lessons. I welcome new students and even teach students with learning disabilities!
