The clarinet is a beautiful instrument full of potential for a wide array of colors and textures and can be played in a variety of styles: classical, jazz, hip hop, Dixieland, Klezmer, and more. I've played clarinet for 15 years, and I teach my students through exercises catered to their musical passions. In addition to the basic technical elements of playing, I focus on listening across the musical spectrum. I encourage the use of long tones and air support to improve tone, flexibility, and all repertoire.

Experienced Clarinet teacher of 7 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! Clarinet was the Primary instrument I studied while attending Ithaca College to receive my music education degree. I studied under Michael Galván whom is well recognized in the clarinet community. I have had two successful beginner students receive top chair placement in their respective high school and middle school bands.I believe that excellence is grown through practice and dedication.

About Michael
Michael A Tate graduated from the prestigious Music Education Program and Psychology Program at Ithaca College in 2012. Ithaca gave him the incredible opportunity to hone in on his musicianship and compositional skills. He was also able to discover a new medium of composition, film composition. Tate immediately fell in love with the art of writing music for film and was able to make his first musical debut on a film directed by Mike Blaney. In his time at Ithaca College, he composed scores for multiple films and continues to maintain an active composition career. Tate is currently finishing as a music teacher Brooklyn Scholars Charter School (BSCS) and Music Content Leader for National Heritage Academies (NHA) New York Branch. In the fall Tate will be returning to school to study the psychological benefits of music education for children
and adolescents, while teaching private lessons.

If you are interested in learning clarinet or bass, reach out to me! I played bass clarinet with the Orlando Concert Band and Rollins College Wind Ensemble for a number of years and would love to bring those skills to you.

About Stephen
I am a classically trained saxophonist, bass vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. I have experience arranging music of all styles for bands, orchestra, percussion ensembles, and a cappella groups. I was the saxophonist for The High Lifes, a ska-punk band out of Orlando, FL; played tenor and baritone saxophone in my university's wind ensemble, saxophone quartet, jazz band, and orchestra; have founded and led four a cappella groups at the collegiate and semi-professional levels; and am a bass section leader in the New York City Bar Choir. I have taught public school band, chorus, orchestra, piano, and music technology classes and was an elementary school music teacher in Orlando, FL before moving to New York in 2012.

My private saxophone students have gone on to study at the college level, have been members of the Florida All-State band, a
nd earned Superior ratings at state music festivals. I have also taught private flute, clarinet, and bassoon lessons.

In addition to music performance classes, I have experiencing teaching music theory and arranging. If you would like to learn about the magic behind music, I'm your guy!

If you're interested in ensemble lessons, we can negotiate group package discounts. I've found that music is best when shared and learning to perform quality musical literature with other, like-minded musicians is one of the most rewarding experiences in life.

I am a professional clarinetist passionate about sharing the joy of music with others. I specialize in beginner to intermediate students of all ages. I teach students how to practice and why to practice in order to help them fall in love with the clarinet! Typical lessons involve scales, sight reading, and a piece that the student chooses. If you like having fun and learning about different kinds of music send me a message!

About Elia
I am a professional clarinetist with experience in classical, contemporary, and jazz music. I graduated from New York University with a Bachelors of Music and a concentration in clarinet performance. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Music Performance, concentrating on clarinet performance, at McGill University. I enjoy teaching clarinet students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical clarinet for 12 years and have taught for 3.

I tailor my lesson plans for each individual student, ensuring that students improve week to week. I believe tone and technique are equally important for clarinetists. I have students prepare scales and etudes for technique and start students with long-tone exercises to begin building the fundamentals to develop tone. I promise to help students discover the fun in music, while buil
ding their repertoire and skill.

Music has enriched every aspect of my life and I know it can do the same to yours! I look forward to teaching you and helping you to become a better musician!

This was my first clarinet lesson for ten years, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to accompany me. Elia was friendly, enthusiastic, and quick to figure out what I need and understand what I want to achieve. I look forward to having a lot of fun rediscovering the clarinet in our subsequent lessons.

Intermediate: Playing intermediate level solo pieces, refining technique, extending range, learning how to play music by ear and performing in various styles, from classical to jazz.

About Jorge
I have over 10 years of experience on the Clarinet and other reed instruments. I am a senior undergraduate BA Music Education major at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and have studied classical clarinet as well as saxophone under various professors at the college.

I have a reputation for achieving whatever goals I set my sights on musically, from performing to composing and conducting.

I am also in touch with the current music education situation in New York City, spending many hours every semester doing fieldwork observations in various music programs across the city as well as being an assistant to various honors
festivals for middle school and high school students, as well as performing in them while still in the public school system.

I personally believe practicing should be fun, and have devised multiple strategies for success to kick-start one's drive for peak performance in music!

Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile.

I have taught clarinet lessons to children from ages 10-18 for 8 years. I take care to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of each child, and I design lesson plans for each student using those observations.

During the lesson, I cater my teaching techniques to the skill level and personality of each student. I also take notes on a Google Doc file detailing what we work on and what the student should practice for the future. The Doc link is sent to parents and to the student, if applicable.

I have a Bachelors degree in Music Education and Music Composition from the University of Georgia. My clarinet professor, Dr. D. Ray McClellan, is a triple Juilliard graduate, and I have studied with him for 6 years.

I have completed Levels I and II of Orff-Schulwerk teacher training, meaning that I specialize in teaching music through movement, drama, and speech. I want each student to have an active and fun music making ...

About Corinne
I'm a clarinet playing, elementary music teaching, high school clarinet directing, performing, dancing teacher with a wild imagination.

I have taught students from 5-18 since I was in high school myself, and I truly love it. I love watching individuals succeed, and I love feeling like I play a part in the process.

When teaching lessons, you may not find me sitting down. Sometimes we'll stand up and move, conduct, create, and choreograph to better understand the music we're working on. Sometimes we'll lie on the floor to work on breathing exercises. Sometimes we'll draw imaginary paintings on the wall to find deeper meaning in what we're learning. It's not just about the notes and rhythms. They are extremely important, but that is not where music ends.

My goal is to make you excited to see me and play your instrument. It is exci
tement and drive that will help you succeed.

When I'm not teaching, you can find me playing my own instruments by myself or with my band. You can even find me breaking out my tap shoes to dance and play my instruments at the same time.

I am excited to work with you!
