I’m very fortunate to be able to learn from Michael. I’ve been working with him for two years now. Since COVID we have been doing lessons online and it’s working well. He is a very talented musician and teacher. Also a very kind and supportive person.
Hugh
Michael introduced my 10 year old kid to saxophone. Lessons were in person and online. My daughter enjoyed them greatly and progressed well, learning to read music and play by ear. He was creative, nurturing and supportive to a new learner. He left quite a lasting impression. We were sad to see him leave the area.
Bobby
I've been with Micheal for over two years now and he has helped me a ton. He's helped my technique, understanding of theory and the music I'm playing. I have recently started flute and he has given me great guidance on how I can improve and it has help tremendously.
Out of all the private lesson teachers I've had, Micheal is by far the best. I highly recommend him.

James
I really enjoy taking saxophone lessons with Ana. She is extremely knowledgeable in topics related to saxophone, jazz, and improvisation. Her lessons are very organized, intellectually stimulating, and she provides just the right amount of structure while allowing me the space to develop my own creative ideas. I highly recommend taking a lesson with her. You’ll thank me later!
Christine
I have played clarinet for 5 years now and am working on music for solo pieces and band class. Ana gives me lots of material to work on and I am feeling more confident about my playing!
Amanda D.
I'm a classically-trained flutist and have been taking Jazz improv and theory lessons with Ana for four months. I have learned so much from her - she has opened my eyes to jazz and made it fun and approachable. The lessons have given me a deeper appreciation when listening to jazz, improved my listening skills, and made me a better player. I never thought I would be able to do improv, and after a few weeks of lessons it came very easily to me. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to learn jazz improv, regardless of what instrument they play!

Private Clarinet Teacher

I have been coaching woodwind players and freelancing for the last 10 years in Los Angeles, New York, and back home in New Hampshire. Growing up, I heard my sister practicing the clarinet couldn't wait to get started. Once I started in 4th grade, I played in every class meeting and even played a duet with my principal in 5th grade during morning announcements. I play creative music of all genres and will help each student find music that they enjoy playing.

Music lessons are an opportunity to facilitate skill acquisition, self-expression, and strategic planning to meet new goals. Ideally the teacher and student agree to treat each musical idea with a unique attention, where the student learns by way of the teachers experience and insightful guidance, and the teacher also learns through live interaction with the student. I believe this type of learning to be possible for all levels of students and even more natural outside of an academic institution than inside of one.

Chris is a wonderful teacher! I had a couple of lessons with him to prepare for my Grad School auditions. and he provided me with the feedback I needed in a supportive style. Even though I was only able to have a couple of lessons they were quite meaningful and I would definitely recommend him. He has great energy and is quite knowledgeable.
Mara
Chris loves teaching woodwinds and it shows! He is amazing at bassoon as well as clarinet, flute, and shakuhachi. He’s great with breath control, musicality, and tailoring lessons to students strengths and individual needs. Highly recommend!!
Roberta
Chris has an infectious love for music and woodwind instruments, and he shares this enthusiasm with his students. As a performer and teacher, he is well-versed in many styles of playing. He is patient, kind and intuitive about the needs of his students. I highly recommend Chris as a teacher!

Beginning my studies on clarinet, I understand the challenges which the instrument presents. I continue to perform the clarinet in big band and in the pit orchestra for musicals. Beginner students will learn basic foundation skills (such as embouchure, air, posture, hand position, tonguing techniques, and reed maintenance) in a fun environment where the student's needs come first. Intermediate students can expect to learn more demanding techniques (such as double tonguing, circular breathing, whole tone and octatonic scales) and selections from the clarinet repertoire in an encouraging but challenging environment.

I love to teach beginning students and intermediate students. With beginning students, I start with how to form the correct embouchure. I stress hand position, and proper breathing techniques. I also emphasize learning to read music. With intermediate students, I emphasize developing proper technique. I emphasize learning scales and arpeggios. I have found a platform that enables me to play duets with my students online.

"Victoria is a wonderful teacher. I had no music training or experience, and out of the clear blue, I decided to learn to play the clarinet. Oh, I should point out that I’m an adult. I’m older than you; actually, I’m older than most people. I’m 65. If you think that’s too late to learn to play an instrument. Victoria will prove you wrong. Victoria took me from how-do-you-put-this-thing-together to playing a four and half minute song in one year. What was incredibly amazing was that every lesson was over Zoom. Victoria has a well-thought-out plan that accommodates whatever style of music you want to play. She is charming, engaging, and patient. If she could teach me to play the clarinet, she can you to play."
