I teach beginner clarinets lessons. An example would be a student in 4th or 5th grade just starting band, I can start with them and stay with them until they go to college. Adult students starting out can last many years with me as their teacher before moving onto the next 'intermediate' level.

About Mandolyn
Hello, thank you for visiting my site!

I am currently a music teacher for Kindergarten-8th grade, teaching general music, concert band and choir, with the occasional school performance of a musical thrown in the mix. My education in music really took off when I attended a Performing Arts High School where I focused mainly on the clarinet, piano and bassoon. During this time I was very active in the High School solo competition scene and took away many state titles in music theory, clarinet and piano. After graduating I received my BFA€™ in Piano Performance from the University of MN-Duluth. While I was studying I was fortunate to have an inspirational conductor who handed instruments of all kinds out to me. This really held my love and appreciation for music and I learned a lot of my teacher technique from her. I later receiv
ed my Masters€™s Degree in an unrelated field but soon realized what I wanted to do in my heart of hearts was teach music.

I have had a lot of experience playing in weddings, background music for large parties and gatherings, and accompaniment for an array of instruments and vocalists. On the clarinet I have performed solo recitals, worked on duets and also played with orchestras. I have a love for music theory and a lot of educational resources for teaching it.

I believe all of these life experiences have really helped me become a natural teacher. I offer a laid back approach and a friendly atmosphere while still providing structure and reasonable expectations. More than anything I want to keep the love and spark for music alive in every student, without that I truly believe it is hard to achieve your greatest goals. This is incorporated in custom lessons for every student.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson is designed for the student in mind as I don'€™t believe any two musicians are alike. People also have different learning styles which I can cater to so everyone is successful. While I have a laid back approach I do give 100% to every lesson I create and I expect the same appreciation from my students. Mistakes are never criticized, rather looked at as a learning experience. When I was taking lessons ruling with an iron fist€™ never benefited me so I make sure to keep a friendly relationship with my students, while still maintaining mutual expectations.

After one month of lessons with me you will have improved on your skills, no matter where you started with me. I put a strong emphasis on artistry alongside technical musicality so you can find your musical voice while still staying true to what you are learning.

My materials range from book series, mostly for beginners, to sheet music for the more advanced students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own clarinet but would expect the student to have their own instrument and any needed equipment. (music stand, piano, clarinet as an example.)

*** Specialties ***
I have been a general music education teacher and have started choral work in this environment for 2 1/2 years. I have a piano performance background and taught lessons for 5 years starting in high school and through some of college.

I wanted to put in a VERY HIGH review for Mandolyn. She was a great
teacher and really got me excited about learning the piano. I will greatly
miss working with her; however, I'm sure she will continue to excel at her

We will work on technique, musicality, and theory. I can help you prepare for performances and auditions, as well as music for pleasure.

About Kate
I participated in every musical activity I could find while growing up: choir, concert band, jazz band, marching band, and rock bands. I decided to focus on classical clarinet performance in college, but I also continued studying piano and bass. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2007 with a degree in Clarinet Performance.

While still in high school, I taught private clarinet lessons to younger students. Teaching helped me become a better player and leader. Since 2007, I have been teaching general music in Chicago Public Schools.

Private lessons allow me to tailor each lesson to the individual student. There are many ways of learning, and at least as many ways of teaching. My goal as a teacher is to pass on lessons of patience, creativity, appreciation, confidence and dedication to my students. I hope
my students will apply these lessons to their musical studies and throughout all areas of their lives.

Music has been an incredibly powerful force in my life, and it is my passion to share the benefits of music through instruction and performance.

***Lesson Details ***

I want my students to leave their lessons with skills and confidence that will help them in all areas of life. It is important to me that I give my students the ability to keep learning outside of our lessons. I believe that music is an art form that can be enjoyed by all!

Working with beginners is my specialty. I understand that each student learns differently, and finding the right method for my students is very important to me. The fundamentals learned in the first year of piano benefit any new musician, and can be applied to other instrumental studies.

Piano and clarinet lessons begin with an assessment of ability and setting of goals. I prefer to use the Faber and Faber piano series with most of my piano students. All lessons are a combination of theory, instrumental/performance technique, and ear training.

I have a master's degree in clarinet performance, but an even better degree in teaching music.

About Jon
Jon N. was born and raised in Mexico City and is proudly an American citizen. He has been performing since the age of three, on several instruments, studying music since fourteen, and still takes lessons to this day. What's not to love?

He is proud to teach at all levels, including many professional musicians with master’s degrees, adult beginners, and of course, kids of all ages between 8 and 75.

They are encouraged to select the music they want to learn, so we have worked on classical music and original compositions, which I also coach, jazz, blues, pop, rock, the Great American Songbook, reggae, seven different kinds of Jewish music, and other ethnic music from all over the globe.

Frequently the younger students will request a tune I've never heard, but I magically transform the MP3 into a handwritten score at the student's l
evel. Example, one of my adult beginners wanted to play the big symphonic poem Scheherazade, and I wrote out the main tunes for easy piano.

I have been teaching for the past 6 years, and love working with all different students. My former students have been selected to be in the Colorado All-State Honor Band and have been accepted to their top choice colleges for music performance. In 2016, I attended the Aspen Summer Music Festival, where I learned a great deal about clarinet and teaching. My specialty is pinpointing bad habits and working towards effortless, high-quality sound and technique.

About Josh
I am an avid clarinetist, energetic performer and enthusiastic teacher. My dream career is to be a soloist like Martin Frost, to play in an orchestra, or compose and perform my music.
My passion for teaching is similar to my passion for performing, and I have experience teaching privately and in front of large groups, as a staff member for a high school marching band.

Josh has been a fantastic Instructor for my middle school age son. He worked closely with him on several pieces that were required to audition at two summer music camps helping him to move from near last position the year before to the top of the class. His improvements were formally recognized with an award at the end of 7th grade and I think Josh was a large part of that improvement. We were saddened to hear that Josh would be leaving the Denver area but wish him the best of success in his new ventures. Josh is an excellent instructor and we would certainly work with him again in the future.

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.

From first lesson through advanced high school students, I focus on quality of tone production and musicality.

About Hunter
My primary teaching philosophy revolves around the idea of creativity and cooperative problem solving. I believe that all musicians should be actively training their ears as well as their abilities on their instrument. I focus on all elements of basic musicianship while incorporating improvisation and composition in an inspiring way.

I grew up playing jazz, soul, R&B, folk, reggae, ska, funk, and classical music. I feel very comfortable working within all of these genres in both performance and educational atmospheres.

Regardless of age, learning a new instrument or art form can be daunting, so I like to include some sort of entertaining activities to keep tension low and inspiration high.

I am a professional clarinetist and certified music teacher (grades K-12) with 5 years of private clarinet teaching experience. Depending on what point in the journey each student is it, our lessons will cover all aspects of playing the clarinet, from proper breathing to performing solo repertoire. I strive to give each of my students a toolbox they can use when they encounter problems while practicing. I want my students to become their own teachers and to think intellectually about music and their instrument.

Teaching is one of my favorite parts of being involved in music. I love being able to share the joy of making music with my students.

This includes: reading music, having a good embouchure, correct hand position, proper breathing and air usage, good technique, and much more.

When I began taking lessons with Theresa, the intent was that it would be a temporary arrangement until I could find a new advanced instructor in the area. However, Theresa's young, fresh perspective and enthusiastic attitude towards learning turned out to be exactly what I needed, and I ended up staying with her for about three years. She's incredibly talented and empathetic, which makes being her student both fun and satisfying. She has high expectations and really pushed me to challenge myself, which ended up taking my skills to a level of proficiency that I hadn't expected. She also understands the difficulties and frustrations that come with being a student and is great at working through them. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a clarinet instructor, whether you just want to play and learn for fun, or if you really need and want someone that will push and challenge you to develop your skills. She's been my most influential instructor to date and I will always value everything she taught me!
