Kathleen F.

North Kingstown, RI

About Kathleen

I began playing flute as a child and have continued with music into adulthood. I attended the Community College of Rhode Island and graduated with an Associates in Fine Arts, and continued my studies at Rhode Island College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with concentrations in Music Theory and Music History. At Ric I studied Flute with Mary Ellen Kregler, as well as, Bass Clarinet with Ian Grietzer, Principal Clarinet for the Boston Pops Orchestra. Currently I am the Prinicipal Bass Clarinetist for the Rhode Island Wind Ensemble and 1st Piccolo for the Boston Wind Jammers, Providence Br
ass Band, and the Worcester Brass Band.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons, I find it important to work on tone production, technique, etudes for concentration, and a piece that the student and I pick out together. I also like to incorporate a little theory in the mix so student understands what they are reading. Most of all, I want the student to feel relaxed and have fun while learning. A relaxed musician who enjoys what they are doing always plays beautifully.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Metronome, Tuner, Keyboards, Various Music Books, Solo Pieces, White Board, and Computer.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Metronome, Tuner, Books, Solo Pieces

*** Specialties ***
Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Music Theory, and Music History

Adam L.

East Falmouth, MA

About Adam

Hi and welcome to my page! I'll get straight to the point and provide you with a little bit of information about myself:

Adam is a professional clarinet player in several ensembles over the past ten years to include the 215th Army band, the Shiners' volunteer unit, multiple local musical orchestras as well as being the principal clarinetist in the UMass Symphony band for four years. Adam received a BA in music from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst). Adam has been teaching privately since 2008 and is a member of the Massachusetts Music Educators Association as well as the National M
usic Educators Association.

As you can see I have plenty of experience in the music field and love to share my passion and enthusiasm for music with everyone I meet. On our very first lesson l want you top teach ME about yourself! When did you start learning music/speaking English, what do you like to listen to and where would you like our lessons to take you? From there I design our lessons around your taste to give you the most in our time together.

If you're unsure about me as a teacher, or just don't know if lessons are right for you, feel free to contact me at Lyonwoodwindinstructor@gmail.com and we'll arrange one free intro lesson. Please don't hesitate to contact me now!

Today was my third lesson with Adam, and I am happy with how things are going. Adam is doing the best I would expect from a clarinet teacher. He is enthusiastic, open for questions, responsive, knowledgeable, and a clear instructor. And all that for a good price.

Ear Training · In home
I was told I was tone deaf by my school music teacher and that I would never be able to sing. After one ear training session with Heather, I not only learned how to find a pitch but I learned how find and match each note! Now I'm much more confident and have been accepted into my community choir! Thank you Heather! You're the Best! I Love to Sing!
