Gordon L.

Gordon L.

Gordon L. began playing music at a very early age but didn't begin to learn the saxophone until he was in fifth grade. Gordon's interest in music grew when he began to work sound systems for bluegrass bands and eventually he started to experiment more with music. Soon after he would pick up guitar which would spark his interest in further pursuing his playing of music. After he bought a guitar, Gordon would practice relentlessly, sometimes for as long as 12 hours a day. This passion for music allowed Gordon to go to a summer rock band camp in San Diego where he learned everything you need to know about touring, playing in a band, making a music video etc. When Gordon reached his senior year of high school he attended Perpich Center of the Performing arts in Golden Valley, Minnesota. While he was learned he took classes in ear training and music theory. He also took a Taiko drum class while he was at Perpich. Along with learning new musical concepts, Gordon also learned how the music business works which got him more interested in marketing the bands he performed in. Gordon also was able to take guitar lessons at Macphail in Minneapolis under the apprenticeship of James Allen. Gordon went on to Mesabi Range Community College where he received his Associates Degree. While there he played saxophone in the Community Band and guitar in bands he started himself. Gordon also took a banjo class, piano class and a music history class at Mesabi Range Community College. His main focus in the past years has been working with bands doing studio work, mini tours and CD production/marketing for those groups. After Community College, Gordon went to Evangel University in Missouri where he continued to study Guitar and Saxophone while picking up more woodwind and string instruments. Gordon took private guitar lessons and attended a Guitar Master Class at this college. He also attended Missouri State University where he learned about theory and composition. He also played Saxophone in the jazz band. While he attended school in Missouri he relentlessly continued to play in multiple groups live and recorded a Ska/Reggae CD (guitar and saxophone tracks) with the band Bringers of the Dawn. Gordon can fluently play and teach Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Clarinet, and Saxophone. Gordon is also willing to teach harmonica and banjo to those interested in learning. Gordon also has knowledge of several other cultural instruments with a background in piano lessons from high school and college. He got superior and excellent ratings at musical competitions for voice and saxophone in high school where he performed songs such as the Hungarian Dance #5 and Beautiful Dreamer. Gordon loves all genres of music and enjoys learning every style he can in order to improve his musical instruction. For the moment Gordon is pursuing songwriting particularly in the field of cultural music. Focusing on the students immediate musical needs, Gordon is able to encourage students to set goals in order to efficiently practice, concentrate and focus during the lesson time. Gordon is very patient with every student so that they refrain from becoming frustrated, overwhelmed or intimidated. Realizing the importance of music, Gordon makes sure that every student leaves each lesson having learned something new.

Clarinet Lessons

The clarinet is a dynamic woodwind instrument with many uses in the world of music that has had a big impact on the classical and jazz worlds. The history of the clarinet stretches back several centuries, and the instrument is believed to have been developed by Johann Christoph Denner, when he added another register key to the chalumeau.

This single-reed woodwind instrument is typically made in different sizes and has the widest range of playable sounds of any modern woodwind. Because of this, some of the fingerings can be a little awkward, especially for those with smaller hands.

That’s where TakeLessons and its best online clarinet lessons (and in-person sessions) help make the difference in learning this sophisticated instrument. Are you ready to get started? Get started on your profile and sign up today!

Is it hard to learn the clarinet?


The clarinet isn’t too hard to get started with. The hardest thing at first will be making a good tone. Because it’s a single-reed woodwind, it takes some work to get the clarinet tone clear and beautiful. The next hardest thing will be learning fingerings, which can be quite complex on the clarinet. Learning all this is made a lot easier with a great tutor guiding you. You can find great clarinet teachers at TakeLessons for all levels and ages.

Can you teach yourself the clarinet?


It is possible to teach yourself the clarinet. New learners can often learn to play a basic song after a few hours of practice. Watching tutorials online or enlisting in online courses will help you along, though eventually you will hit some learning roadblocks. The best way is to find a great teacher and take private lessons. If you have the time and resources, sign up for the best online clarinet lessons or in-person coaching at TakeLessons, an effective and affordable learning platform.
