The nuts and bolts of how and why music does what it does. We start from the very beginning, making no assumptions about what is already known, so that a solid foundation can be established. Once done, you can build anything, musically. It helps to know how to read music, play an instrument, and be able to transfer the lesson topics into the "real world" of application, using songs and exercises to illustrate the points.

I took lessons about 40 years ago from other teachers, not sure what I was expecting. However Geoff far exceeded whatever they were. Very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher.

My son had a great first lesson with Geoff. He was kind and patient but also very knowledgeable.
Ethan
"It was kind of hard but fun!" My 9 year old left saying, "now I finally know how to learn how to play from sheet music!" Geoff is patient and knowledgeable.

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.

About Mady

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 th

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.
Trevor
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.
Carol
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!

Holly
Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!
Christopher
Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.
Krystal
Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and great with students off every age group! I took lessons from him for five years and my only regrets were not having more time to practice so I could get more out of my lesson times.
During lessons we worked on sight reading, ear training, memorizing chords and scales, different picking and strumming patterns, theory lessons, and anything else that I discovered and wanted to try.

"Gabriel is very good!

After my first lesson, I left feeling more confident about my abilities. He was able to point out what has been holding me back from using my full voice potential and I have noticed a very significant improvement since day one. Taking lessons with Gabriel is something I look forward too every week. He is a very good instructor!!! I'm constantly learning new skills and many ways to improve in this area, what can I say... I love it!"

"Our daughter is taking Oboe and Piano lessons with Lisa. Lisa has taught her more than she has learned from anyone else (including her instructors at school), she is always encouraging our daughter to reach a little higher than her current level, and interested in the music she wants to learn to play instead of just the lesson book. As a parent that knows very little about music, Lisa has always gone out of her way to help us with any questions we have about buying instruments or just in general."

"Tanisha is an Excellent Singing Teacher!

Tanisha is worth every minute of every lesson, every mile of the 40-minute drive, and every dime of her modest fee. My 13-year old daughter (excuse me, "about to be 14") has been taking singing lessons from Tanisha since early this year. After the first one-hour lesson, both my daughter and I walked away smiling from ear to ear. We were impressed and ecstatic, knowing that we were blessed to have literally stumbled upon someone of Tanisha's talents, personality, and passion for teaching.

Tanisha is always cheerful and pleasant and has a great sense of humor. She is honest with her criticism and encouraging at the same time. I have noticed a marked improvement in the strength of my daughter's voice and her singing confidence. Tanisha teaches my daughter how to use her voice healthfully so that she can have longevity as a singer. She teaches my daughter how to overcome voice issues, like hoarseness from having a cold, to deliver a good performance in spite of the problem. She teaches my daughter what happens when her voice doesn't come out right so my daughter knows how to recognize and correct it herself. We went from Tanisha asking my daughter "What happened that time?" when she hit a wrong note and my daughter shrugging her shoulders with a blank stare to my daughter answering with confidence, "I sang from my throat and didn't support."

Tanisha has challenged my daughter completely out of her comfort zone with great progress, and she teaches my daughter that it is ok to hit a bad note so she can learn how to fix it. She gives my daughter voice exercises to practice at home.

Tanisha is more than my daughter's vocal teacher. She teaches my daughter how to "perform" in front of the mirrored wall which is helping my daughter feel more confident singing in front of an audience. Tanisha relates to my daughter with endless funny analogies that my daughter loves. My daughter looks forward to every lesson, and she respects and looks up to Tanisha as a mentor as well as vocal teacher who, by the way, has an amazing voice herself and is gifted on the piano.

From the experience and progress that my daughter has gained with Tanisha, she is 100 times more confident with her singing than she was at the beginning of the year. Tanisha is awesome - more than we bargained for. You would be blessed to have her as a vocal teacher. We plan to start my daughter on piano lessons soon, and I'm toying with the idea of taking songwriting lessons from her."

Pink Floyd Guitar Lesson | How to Play Like David Gilmour

When it comes to incredible guitar players, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd takes the cake. In this article, teacher Bernard M. shows you how to play the guitar just like the legend himself...   Many musicians strive to sound like their heroes. They want to get that special something that makes those legends stand out from the crowd. One of the best ways you can do this is to learn their parts -- beat for beat, note for note. While this can be difficult and time consuming, it's on …
