Want to learn to play the clarinet? Let me help you!
Kimberly was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. After starting the flute and piano at the age of 8, she knew she had found something she loved and wanted in her life forever. At age 12, she added the saxophone and clarinet to her repertoire of instruments. After completing her Bachelors degree in Flute Performance at the University of Arizona she moved to Los Angeles to work on her Masters degree at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). There was where she fell in love with contemporary music and has devoted her life to sharing her love for it with others. After completing her Masters degree in Flute Performance at CalArts, she went on to pursue a Doctorate in Contemporary Flute Performance at the University of California, San Diego. Kimberly now resides in Los Angeles and plays with many groups throughout the city.

I have been teaching clarinet for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.
Hello, my name is Doyle B. and I am eager to help you reach your goals! I've been teaching private lessons since 1992 and have loved helping my students win competitions at the state level, learn how to advance rapidly on their instrument, and fall in love with making music. I have 3 earned degrees from Pensacola Christian College (B.S. in Music Ed., 1992), Hobe Sound Bible College (A.A., 1993) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Church Music, 1996). I have experience teaching all of the band instruments, violin, guitar, and piano. I'm an enthusiastic, upbeat person who greatly enjoys working with people of all ages. I am presently employed at Hobe Sound Bible College and Christian Academy. I presently have students in New Jersey, South Dakota, Florida, and Maryland, who I teach using Skype or FaceTime. Fortunately,
I have a couple openings in my schedule to teach any one who is serious about excelling on his/her instrument. I look forward to helping you reach your potential.
I believe in catering lessons to a students individual desires and musical goals. Our lessons can cover a broad range of concepts like: Musicality/Performance Jazz Improvisation Composition/Arranging Transitioning from Clarinet to Sax, Bass Clarinet or Flute How to practice Tone and Sound production Technique Reading/Sight Reading Learning Tunes And MUCH, MUCH MORE!!!
With over 20 years playing experience Preston began playing professionally very early. He has toured over 6 countries including England, France, Switzerland and Italy. He received his degree in Jazz Studies/ Performance from the prestigious University of North Texas Jazz program, the first Jazz program in the country and still the greatest with alumni like Norah Jones, The Eagles and The Blues Brothers.
My son took lessons in person with him but the school moved.
We are very happy to continue with such a positive teacher!

Preston is incredibly knowledgeable and professional. He is kind and takes time for new students to understand the concepts at their pace. Our son is really looking forward to his next lesson! Thank you!

A very patient person.Listens too what i'm saying has got me doing things i really haven't thought about doing before,such as listening and playing the notes from the bass line.Something new i'm going too have too get used to doing in order too become a better sax player.
I began playing clarinet over 12 years ago and have been passionate about it ever since. I have taught music, as well as performed solos, duets, quartets, concerts, and more. I have a minor in music and have won scholarships for performance. As a teacher, I know how to make reading and playing music accessible and successful for all!
I am an experienced classroom teacher, tutor, caregiver, and leader. I have minors in Music and Spanish, a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have also been in competitive public speaking for several years.
With a solid understanding of education from different perspectives -leadership, students, parents, teachers, and more - I know what it takes to help students achieve at their full potential. I ensure lessons and material are unique to the student, engaging and enjoyable, relevant, and catalysts for growth and success. Test preparation is also a skill I help students excel in. In fact, some of the schools I have been partnered with have even been featured on television.
As a competitive public speaker, I have won awards at the local, state, and national levels. I have also fo
unded, coached, and judged teams and speakers.
As a musician, I have played and/or competed in solos, duets, quartets, concerts and more. I have studied music theory, written my own music, won scholarships, and taught others.
My students vary in ability from autistic and nonverbal, to English language learners, to gifted and talented. I have taught students in rural, suburban, and urban environments in charter, public, and private schools. My students are from a variety of different cultures, religions, and backgrounds. The similarity they share is being proud of their achievements after working together!
My students typically tell me that I am one of their favorite teachers. I believe every student is capable of achievement, and it is my mission to help them get there. I see students greater than they see themselves, and in sharing this, they end up feeling more confident and empowered themselves. My lessons are fun, relevant, effective, and individualized. I can't wait to partner up with you! Let's make your goals happen!
With training at high-level schools and over a decade of diverse professional experience, I'm well-suited to teach saxophone in any style. Whether you need help with school ensemble music, want to learn your favorite melodies, or even want to write your own music, I can offer experienced and relaxed guidance towards your goals!
I'm a multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer, arranger, freshly transplanted to Brooklyn after seven great years in Boston, Massachusetts. My professional experience on saxophone, keyboards, clarinet, flute, and bass in many different musical styles has offered me a wide-ranging palate to teach from. For the past five years, I've worked for multiple organizations and agencies as a private lessons instructor, averaging 15-20 students at any given time and maxing out at over 30! My approach to lessons is laid back, yet goal-oriented. My main goals are to equip my students musical and instrumental fundamentals, help them discover their particular passions within music and work towards related goals, and to foster an environment rooted in fun and mutual respect.
My daughter enjoyed learning clarinet with Tyler. As another reviewer has noted, Tyler is a gentle and patient teacher. My daughter could be difficult during lessons and often got distracted, and Tyler was great at steering her back on track and engaging her through new music and exercises.

Tyler was the piano teacher for our two daughters for almost 5 years. They were piano beginners aged 4 and 6 when we started. My daughters are more on the shy side, and Tyler ended up being the perfect teacher for them. He is gentle and patient but at the same time got them excited about learning the instrument and playing music of different genres. My daughters enjoyed the lessons very much and they were sad to see Tyler leave for New York. I can highly recommend Tyler as a teacher especially for shy beginners like my daughters were.
September 25, 2018
My son's comment was that Tyler was the best music teacher he ever had and he has had a lot. He misses him a lot.
I have been playing clarinet since 2002, and teaching since 2009. I have taught in the public school setting, as well as private teaching since 2013 for beginners, intermediate, and high school level students. My goal is to provide accurate and practical information in playing your instrument. The sound of the clarinet becomes unique to each player, and coupled with proper technique in all areas of playing (finger technique, tone, articulation, note identification/reading, rhythm comprehension, musical expressions), this will springboard the enjoyment of practicing and playing music. This beautiful and melodious instrument completely encompasses the miracle of music, and working with me will create a solid foundation for such music making. Using a clarinet specific method book, we will begin with fundamental tone production, rhythm reading, and note reading so a solid foundation is created for life long music playing.
Hi, I'm Mady! I have been an enthusiast for the clarinet since I started in 6th grade in 2002. At the beginning of the Disney movie, 101 Dalmatians, the moving sheet music and clarinet sound had me hooked on wanting to learn how to play. Even before beginning band, I was trying to figure out how this instrument worked, and have loved every second of it since. Playing and teaching is my niche, and I cannot wait to help you in your musical journey! I have a Bachelor's in Music Education from an accredited Arkansas college, Arkansas Tech University. While studying all aspects of teaching all kinds of instruments, I studied with a clarinet professor, and still love learning about how to be even better on this instrument.
I earned top chair in the top University Ensemble several semesters in a row, and competed in a solo competition, where
I placed in the top 3 of soloists.
In 2014 I taught K-12 music in the public school setting, and currently I am a Clarinet Adjunct for Junior Highs and High Schools in the Greenwood/Fort Smith area. I have been an active adjunct for 2 years, since 2016, first in the Cabot/Little Rock area, and now in the Fort Smith area. I also take on private lessons for all ages and levels of players from first year players through sixth year players, typically high school level students. I teach fundamental sounds and music reading, as well as prep students for auditions in All-Region material, and solo material.
I have been a speaker at a university sponsored Clarinet Day in 2014, where area Middle, Junior, and High school level students attend to learn more about the clarinet. My topic of presentation was over "Back to Basics", making a big review over all the best fundamentals for the clarinet to improve sound and technique. I also co-hosted a professional development session for area band directors on best teaching methods on reeds/equipment for clarinet from the experience of collegiate lessons.
During the summers of 2012-2016, I was hired to be a clarinet adjudicator, group and individual lesson teacher at the ATU Band Camps, a week long camp that housed all students working on band instruments to rehearse and perform a concert.
Teaching clarinet has become a great passion for me, and anyone that shows any kind of interest should have access to someone who loves to teach and play, and I feel that is where I am available to be that resource.
I have employed Madyson as an adjunct teacher at Waldron Public Schools in Arkansas where I teach. She has taught clarinet sectionals and lessons for us at the high school and middle school. She has done a fantastic job with our students. They have learned and gained a lot from her teaching. I recommend her to anyone looking for clarinet private instruction and/or group instruction.

My son has been taking lessons once a week from Madyson since July, and I am very pleased with the progress he has made with her. She has a very energetic and outgoing personality that helps him enjoy the work he's putting forth.

Very patient, great sense of humor and very well priced. Been a flautist for 25 years and been playing the clarinet for several months now. It's what I always wanted to learn but couldn't till recently. Mady is great!
I have been playing the clarinet for 12 years, and teaching lessons for 4 years. While clarinet is my primary, I am proficient in oboe, and flute as well. I make targeted lesson plans according to the needs of each individual student. Not only will you learn how to play music beautifully, you will also learn the theory behind it, making it a more enjoyable and stress free experience.
I am a professional clarinetist. I am currently a senior Instrumental Music Education Major with a concentration in clarinet at William Carey University.
I am a member of a professional orchestra as well as many small ensembles. I have been playing clarinet for 13 years and teaching for 5. Teaching is something I am very passionate about and is something that I truly love doing.
Students should expect to improve on a weekly basis in both technicality, but also as a musician. Students will receive a customized lesson plan tailored to their specific needs.
Felicia was so professional and really helped me dissect and understand a difficult passage I’m working on. She is hilarious and has THE BEST analogies! I really love her teaching style and her wide windows of availability! 12/10 would recommend!!!!

I have 15 years of teaching experience, a bachelor's degree in music education, and I am working on my master's degree in music education right now. I am a full-time music teacher, and I received the "Teacher of the Year" award in my school last year and was therefore nominated for Colorado Teacher of the Year. Teaching music is my absolute passion in life, and I truly love teaching students of all ages the joys of music. I have taught students from all over the world (I lived and taught overseas in Africa on a hospital ship for 3 years), and I tailor my teaching to match students of all learning abilities and styles.
I grew up in Colorado Springs actively involved in every musical activity possible! Band, choir, youth symphony, private lessons on 3 instruments. . . I couldn't get enough! It was easy for me to decide on a career path, since I was extremely passionate about music and about children. I attended the University of Northwestern--St. Paul in Minnesota, where I earned my Bachelor of Music Education. I am now working on my Master's of Music Education from Kent State University.
For three years, I taught K-4 general music and 4th/5th grade orchestra in Worthington, MN. I then moved across the globe to teach on the hospital ship the Africa Mercy with the organization Mercy Ships. On board the ship, I taught full-time Kindergarten as well as K-5 music classes. While I lived and taught on the ship, it traveled between the Canary Islands, the Repu
blic of Congo, South Africa, and Madagascar. I absolutely loved being a part of this amazing organization and teaching the incredible students from all over the world.
After 3 years abroad, I moved back to Colorado Springs and I am thrilled to be finishing my third year teaching full-time elementary classroom music. I am very excited to be back in the beautiful place where I grew up, and to spend time with my wonderful family who live in Colorado Springs and Denver.
When I teach, I strive to create a warm, caring, and exciting environment that students look forward to attending. I truly enjoy igniting a love and appreciation for music in my students, and transferring my musical passion to them as much as possible! I hope to see every student's eyes light up with joy as they dive into the wonderful world of music with me.
