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!
I have played clarinet for over 20 years. I studied clarinet with members of the Philadelphia Orchestra while studying music education at Temple University. I play professionally and enjoy teaching all levels of clarinet students! I frequently perform on clarinet and bass clarinet.
I received my Doctorate in clarinet performance from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in May 2020. During my doctoral program, I was the teaching assistant in clarinet for three years. Previously, in May 2016, I graduated from California State University with a Master in Music in clarinet performance under the teaching of Hakan Rosengren, international soloist. Finally, prior to my doctorate studies, I studied with Boris Allakhverdyan, principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I currently teach at the LA Philharmonic Youth Orchestra YOLA and at the French Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles. I am also a Buffet Crampon USA sponsored artist. I have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and America and I am seeking clarinet students of every level and age. I will focus my teaching on your needs and can help you improve technique, musicianship and sound production. I also can help you get ready for auditions and recitals.
