Private Clarinet Teacher

I am an experienced orchestral clarinetist and bass clarinetist. I can help you or your student achieve their goals through individual planning. I enjoy working on fundamentals and utilizing performance psychology practices to improve the learning outcomes for the students. I believe that teaching clarinet is like playing a sport: there is a lot that goes into the work that is challenging the student while enjoying the process.

Erick is a thorough and patient teacher. My son's techniques have improved since he started taking lessons Erick. Erick even introduced editing music with Garage Band to my son. I like the range of topics he brings to his lessons.
My only complaint is Erick's lack of responsiveness to emails. He never responds to correspondence.

If you are considering online lessons with Erick, do it! He is attentive, considerate, kind, informed, proactive and intuitive. My 11 year old has been taking lessons with him since May 2020 and it has been a wonderful experience for our son and for us. We will continue to work with Erick for as we can.

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!

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

I have taught clarinet to beginning and high school students. I have 30 years experience teaching both privately and as a band director. I know the curriculum and techniques to help you efficiently and effectively reach your goals. I have guided students through the challenges beginning and mastering the clarinet and can help you!

The most important element of becoming a musician is learning to play musically. As I lead my college students into a music profession, I remind them that I am primarily teaching them to be musicians who perform musically through their chosen instrument. This is what sets performs apart and I can help you become a better musician on saxophone, clarinet or any other instrument.

"Great Teacher

I have been taking lessons with Tony since 2009 and I have seen nothing but improvement in the way I play. I saw my biggest improvements when I would audition for the regional band. My score increased each year. I went from 560 my first year to 915 out of 1000 my last. You will not be disappointing when you will take lessons with him. You will continue to grow if you follow his lessons."
