Clarinet is fun instrument to play, and I will help you get the most out of your learning. As a clarinet student, you will master the range, tone, and technique necessary to become a good clarinet player.

For beginner students, learning will start from opening your case for the first time and progress all the way to playing your first melodies. Beginning students are first taught how to blow across the reed to make a sound on the clarinet before moving on to other basics, including music reading, posture, and breath control.

For intermediate students, lessons will focus on breath control and support, posture, tonal quality, finger dexterity, articulation, hand position, sound production, and music theory as well as musicianship skills.

My 9 year old son just finished 5 lessons with Wilma. He is a brand new piano student. Wilma's gentle style and patience was perfect for him. He already feels more confident about reading notes and playing. I highly recommend Wilma!

I want lessons to be fun but also challenging and disciplined. I am very adamant about starting with a set of warm up exercises every day followed by scale work. But I also want the student to play what they want to play, so I will either ask them to find a piece to be approved by me or I will find a piece for them based on what they like and are looking for. Every student is different so I will treat them as such! I will also help them bring any ensemble music they need help with to their lessons.

About Joseph
Hi there! I just recently finished my Masters in Clarinet Performance from the University of Maryland and I would love to teach your student! I teach both clarinet and saxophone and have 5 years of teaching experience. I have worked for the Richardson School of Music, FAME, and the SHARP program at William Wirt Middle School in Maryland as well as Cedar Shoals, East Jackson, Decatur, and other high schools in Georgia. I am also an avid learner and I believe that no two students should be treated or approached in the same way. I have been very fortunate to have so many great teachers in my life and I do my best to use everything they have taught me to help my students!

I received my Bachelor's of Music in Clarinet Performance from the University of Georgia and my Masters from the University of Maryland. I currently play clarinet and bas
s clarinet in The Florida Orchestra. Please feel free to visit my website at www.josephbeverly.com for recordings and more information about me!

I know Joseph's work as a wonderful clarinetist and chamber musician having worked with him closely at the University of Maryland as one of his professors. Joseph's command of the instrument and his artistry are absolutely outstanding and his personality, demeanor and diligence are such that I am confident he would be an excellent instructor. I recommend him most highly with no reservations!

Joseph is by far one of the most engaging, supportive and motivating clarinet tutor I have been blessed to learn from. He has a wicked ability to expertly tailor lessons and break down musical concepts to my learning ability. His lessons leave me excited and pumped. Fortissimo!

Hi! My name is Eddie, and I’m a professional clarinet, bass clarinet, and saxophone player in the Ann Arbor area. I currently play with local orchestras such as the Ann Arbor and West Michigan Symphonies, among others. My goal as a teacher is to help cultivate an enriching and entertaining musical experience with the clarinet and/or saxophone, while catering to each student's goals–whether it be achieving high scores in solo competitions or simply learning to play a few easy jazz tunes.

About Edward
Hi, my name is Eddie Sundra, and I teach private clarinet and saxophone in the Ann Arbor area. I've been playing clarinet and saxophone for over 15 and 10 years, respectively, and I've been teaching professionally for the past five years. My musical interests generally include classical, jazz, and a slew of other musical genres ranging from ethnic to electronic. I have experience teaching students from beginning through collegiate levels, with a special emphasis on middle and high school students. As a doubler myself, I encourage clarinet students who are interested in jazz to learn saxophone, as it expands their versatility and expressive capabilities.
As a performer, I have played in orchestras and chamber ensembles across the country and some in Europe. I am currently a member of the Lima Symphony in Ohio and Hartford Symphony in Conn
ecticut, and I am a substitute member of many others.
I have degrees in clarinet performance from the University of Michigan and Penn State, and my principal teachers include Chad Burrow, Dan Gilbert, and Dr. Anthony J. Costa. I have also completed additional studies with major symphony players such as Michael Rusinek, Joaquin Valdepenas, and Burt Hara.
As a teacher, I've maintained small private studios in the Ann Arbor, MI and State College, PA areas. I've also taught saxophone and clarinet in Aspen, Colorado with the P.A.L.S. program, as part of the Aspen Music Festival.

--Teaching Philosophy--

My goal as a teacher is to help cultivate an enriching and entertaining musical experience with the clarinet and/or saxophone. I hope to cater to the student’s goals as a performer (whether it be achieving perfect scores in solo competitions or simply learning to play a few easy jazz tunes), while offering a wealth of information along the way. Lessons will focus on fundamentals, musical literacy, aural skills, artistic creativity, improvisation, and composition. While I believe that structure in lessons is important for consistent development, I also believe that every student has different needs and interests, therefore each student receives individually-tailored lessons. The material I use is a culmination of both what I've used and personally developed, as well as materials my teachers have used and recommended in pedagogy classes I've taken.

It is my hope that I can help students obtain their goals while enjoying the wonderfully creative experience of learning an instrument and expressing themselves through the wonderful world of music.

I started playing clarinet in 1998 and continued through college. I took private lessons under Dr. Christopher Gibson at Northwest Missouri State University. I have a Bachelor of Education in Instrumental Music from that university as well.

About Dana
It has been a dream of mine for a long time to be a full-time piano teacher. I have been playing piano since the age of five. Teaching is in my genes, both of my parents teach special education. My father is a music nerd as well! He shared his joy of music with me and I want to pay it forward.

Some of my strengths include patience, humor and compassion for others. I want to figure out what makes you tick. What do you want to learn about piano? I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach piano. Did you know they make color by note coloring books? At the end of the day if I can share even a fraction of my love for music with you and you are able to learn something, that is what gives me true joy.

I have been teaching Clarinet and Saxophone in Maryland for 5 years. I accept students of all ages and ability levels. Whether you are preparing for an audition or just getting started, I can help show you the skills you need to be successful. My curriculum is heavily focused on air and breathing, but also includes basic music theory and history. The only requirement is effort!

About Nathan
Nathan Raderman has been performing music since he was ten years old. Nathan started as a clarinetist and began doubling on saxophone at age 14. Although Nathan is a Howard County native, he started his musical education at the Walnut Hill School in Natick, Massachusetts. While at the New England Conservatory, Nathan studied with Boston Symphony assistant principal and Boston Pops principal clarinetist Thomas Martin. After returning to Maryland, Nathan performed with the Virginia Symphony and continued his studies with David Jones, principal clarinetist of the National Opera. Nathan performed chamber music throughout the Boston area, and performed with conductor Benjamin Zander in Carnegie Hall. Nathan was a semifinalist at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition with his group, The Mülfeld Trio, and was featured on the radio program
, From The Top. Nathan continued to perform with orchestras all around Boston, including the Boston Latin American Project, the Boston Philharmonic, and the Boston Mozart Society. When working with composer John Heiss, Nathan was an Honors Chamber Music performer for two years and was a frequent performer with NEC’s Contemporary Ensemble.
