After more than a decade of performing and teaching in Los Angeles, Eric now calls Seattle home. Since graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Music, Eric has pursued professional jazz and music education with equal passion.
In addition to a robust private studio, in Los Angeles Eric was a jazz coach for the Downbeat Magazine award-winning band at Downey High School. Eric also taught for nine years with the elementary school band program, Children's Music Workshop.
If you choose to take lessons with me, your money is going toward top-notch private music instruction. My curriculum includes goal-setting meetings and check-ups to ensure that my student and myself are both doing our best to realize his or her musical ambitions. I utilize 'before and after' recordings to show my students just how far they've come without even realizing it, stirring up deeper motivation and reinforcing the power of practicing. Although I've been playing for over 15 years and now perform regularly in the NYC area, I don't expect my skills and experience to simply rub off on my students. When you schedule a lesson with me, you are working with an educator, not a performer.
Although I am a saxophonist professionally, I've been playing clarinet alongside it for a few years, and I'm fully capable of taking on beginner and intermediate students on this instrument. Rest assured, the unique features of my teaching style and curriculum are no less powerful because clarinet ...
I'm a baritone saxophonist and a die-hard jazz enthusiast living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. I graduated from Bard College with a BA in music, specifically jazz performance and contemporary composition. In addition to saxophone, I also play clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, and piano (I'm also convinced that I can play the drums, but my friends disagree). Since moving to Brooklyn, I've entrenched myself in the New York music scene, playing mainly jazz, funk and pop, as well as composing my own music on the side.
In addition to performing, I teach regularly, giving in-home lessons to my students throughout the NYC area. I teach all levels of saxophone, as well as beginner to intermediate piano, and beginner flute and clarinet. I offer a rich curriculum with my own set of teaching materials such as, goal calendars, practice logs, and be
fore-and-after recordings. If you are thinking of booking lessons, don't hesitate to contact me via Take Lessons. That way I can ensure that I have space in my studio and that you will get the most out of your experience with me. Can't wait to work with you!
My son, Justin, started taking lessons with Alden about a year and a half ago, and absolutely loved it! Justin has always loved music, and I think that lessons with Alden have taken this up a notch. It's so great to hear Justin's progress and for him to hear it too! Thanks Alden!

Alden is a wonderful young man! Very professional and always prepared, he keeps lessons interesting and fun for my daughter Chanda, who was just a beginner last year. Now she’s playing all kinds of songs and filling our home with music!

If I were to recommend a saxophone teacher to anyone, it would 100% be Alden! My son has been taking lessons with Alden for about 6 months now and I can notice great strides being made in both his playing and overall confidence. Alden's encouraging nature coupled with his love and knowledge of his instrument and music in general creates an incredibly nourishing learning environment for a student. If you are looking for a new saxophone teacher for yourself or your child, you have found the one!
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 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.
About J. Erick
(hablo español) I play clarinet and bass clarinet. I have a Bachelor of Music from the University of Florida, a performance diploma from Boston Conservatory, and currently working on a Master of Music at DePaul University.
I have worked with several local wind ensembles and orchestras such as the Boston Civic Symphony and groups at MIT. During my time in Florida I performed with Ars Flores Symphony, Alhambra Orchestra, Frost Clarinet Choir, and the Miami Music Project.
My approach to the clarinet is goal-oriented and focused on making the practicing process easy and fun for the students. I prefer to discuss the goals openly with the student, and then come up with bite size chunks of practice to reach those goals over time. Playing music is like playing a sport; there are a lot of skills to be learned but the results are gratifying
and far reaching.
I encourage my students to use time-saving methods like ClassicalFingers (finger training) as well as endurance building exercises with simple items like straws and a wall.
My main concentrations are orchestral, chamber music, and contemporary music. I will help the student prepare for All-State, Solo/Ensemble, or their wind band/orchestra/audition repertoire. I also will bring duets to help the student learn to play along with others and improve sight-reading ability.
Music is a valuable tool for self expression and personal development. It empowers students to think creatively and optimistically, and it also provides a platform to learn widely-applicable skills. I aim to help my students feel understood, heard, and confident through the power of their craft. By making these skills feel accessible, familiar, and fun, I am confident that students will excel!
Students will learn about efficient practice, creative problem solving, and storytelling through their art, as well as craft components like tone, rhythm, articulation, intonation, and scales/technique. We can also discuss how to read music and understand music notation.
I am able to teach clarinet as well as bass clarinet.
As a graduate student at the Mannes School of Music, I understand and still face the challenges of practicing and progressing on the clarinet. HOWEVER, I also know how rewarding it feels to overcome each obstacle! I aim to make this process joyful.
Lastly, and most ...
I am a recent graduate from the Mannes School of Music having studied Clarinet Performance with Jon Manasse. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Arts Management and Entrepreneurship. In my years of teaching, I have taught a wide variety of ages and experience levels and am incredibly passionate about watching my students' musical and personal growth. I believe every piece of music can create imagery and narratives, and I want to help others find this joy. Let's tell stories together!
I look forward to hearing any questions you might have!

I invite you to listen to music, explore different genres and make your mind up as to what you would like to play.

instrument. Technique is what truly unlocks all doors in music having the ability to play anything comes from scale practice and patterns. Metronomes are a vital part of your success.
Finally reading and basic music theory is the essential skill that separates men from minnows in the sense of making music consistent. The discipline necessary to do this is minimal but important. I trust that you will excel in my class because my methods are tried and true. If at the end of the first lesson you feel you will not progress on your mission with me I completely understand but do think that will be unlikely as I want to share with you my deepest thoughts on how this can be done and in return you will receive the best education possible.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to providing you with some great lessons!
"We love Tyra. She teaches in a selective high school for the arts, so is used to getting the best out of kids. And I love that she comes to our home!"
"Josh is a wonderful clarinet teacher. He's patient, instructive, and he gives positive and constructive feedbacks. I am an adult beginner on the clarinet
and I feel like I've improved a lot during the first three lessons with Josh."
"Chelsea has been a great help for my son. He was having difficulty in class and was not happy to play it. He developed interest in this instrument after h
aving these additional personal classes."
I am taking clarinet classes with Mrs. Shannon, I appreciate her professionalism, knowledge sharing and dedication during class. She will
find the way for the student to understand the concepts and help you progress with your instrument learning.
I definitely recommend Shannon as a music teacher for all levels."
"Josh is really a great teacher, I feel that I have really improved my playing over the last 5 lessons!"
"Great lesson!! Lucas was very kind to my daughter. Flexible and my daughter came out of lesson knowing more and feeling more confident. Thank you!!"
"Studying with Naum I not developed my musicality tremendously, while still focusing on technical aspects of playing. He is a patient, inspiring instructor
. My little brother (13) studied with Naum for three years and is now playing at a level above many his age. What I appreciate the most about Naum's approach, is his ability to adapt to his student's individual needs and abilities. I always felt my lessons were made for me, and this helped me grow very quickly as a musician. I should also add that Naum is a fantastically talented player, and very moving to hear in concert."
"Hideaki transformed my daughter's music experience. He not only taught her how to play the clarinet well he taught her how to understand and feel music.
He is great teacher. He also invited us to his performances which were a lot of fun."
"My daughter enjoyed learning clarinet with Tyler. As another reviewer has noted, Tyler is a gentle and patient teacher. My daughter could be difficult dur
ing lessons and often got distracted, and Tyler was great at steering her back on track and engaging her through new music and exercises."
