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 have played clarinet for 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!

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

· Acoustic Guitar ·
Paul has been a tremendous instructor for me and my journey on learning acoustic guitar. During lessons he has also taught me music theory and explained it simply, and through that I feel like the guitar and music in general has been opened up to me and I now see music more clearly. I highly recommend him as an instructor!

· Music Recording ·
Paul is an amazing teacher and mentor. Today we tackled harmonies while recording and it was so special to me. Paul is dedicated to his craft and his students. He prepares for each lesson, whether vocal or piano, and pushes me further along while reinforcing what we learned previously. He's just the perfect balance of strict and encouraging, always leaving me with a lesson that I had not anticipated and a whole lot of fun. I am so happy I found a teacher as great as Paul, he is truly one of a kind!

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 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. Hailed by the Boston Musical Intelligencer for his “melting” tone, Nathan became a founding member and principal clarinetist of the Love and Friendship Orchestra, a revolutionary project led by pianist and conductor, Yannick Rafalimanana. Nathan also performed with the New World Symphony, led by conductor Michael Tilson Thomas. Nathan’s biggest inspirations include Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem as well as actor Nicolas Cage.
