I studied clarinet from elementary school to high school. I was in concert band and marching band for nearly 10 years. Here, we will study technique, reading music, understanding finger placement, theory and more.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

Awesome

Finding Olivia was no coincidence.My 11 year old daughter is so psyched when she has her lessons!
It is in Liv's home,just a 10 minute ride from where we live,it's warm,safe,and filled with talent.
The passion of music is everywhere you look,Daphne and Olivia are
Ike old souls that just jive together perfectly.
Daphne has gained confidence,a mentor,and a ton of fun,
I thought Daphne was on a short lived path,as kids often jump from one idea to the next,but I believe singing is something she will definitely peruse.
I am so pleased with Take Lessons and especially Olivia.

Phil is so wonderful. After I retired I wanted to learn to play the flute, so I signed up for 30 minutes. I signed for 30 because you never know if you and the instructor are going to get along. I discovered that while I was in session I did fairly well. But once home alone, I would end up in tears. I decided to go from learning the flute to learning the clarinet. I was afraid I would have to find another teacher, but no. Phil pulled out his clarinet and I have been happy ever since! He has a calm demeanor, never talks down to you, multi-talented and encourages you. I finally had to go from 30 minutes to an hour. I found I would have about 15 minutes of questions on symbols, word meanings, etc.; which only left me 15 minutes of actual music. So this may also be something to think about.

About Rachel
Hello everybody! I have a BA in Music and have been a freelance performer for many years. My teachers have held the highest degrees in their field and some are professional performers. I've played in many different types of groups including: marching bands, concert bands, orchestras, chamber groups, and pit orchestras for theatrical performances. While my primary instrument is clarinet, I can double on any woodwind that doesn't have a double reed on it. My teaching specialty is single reeds (clarinets and saxes), but I'll gladly take on flute players and double reed players. Not only is doubling fun and helps you get more work, it can help you pinpoint strengths and weaknesses with your primary instrument. It can also tell you whether or not your primary instrument will stay the same or will change over time (there's nothing wrong with ei
ther option!).

Please bring your own instrument to your lesson (surprisingly, I've found that this isn't self-explanatory). I don't have any to loan out at this time. If you need help picking out an instrument (and perhaps a mouthpiece), please contact me and I'd more than happy to help. Also, please bring reeds, any music that you have, a tuner, and a metronome. If you can't bring a tuner or metronome to your lessons, I will have mine, but please purchase them as soon as possible (or download an app as many are available), so you can practice with them. Solid rhythm and intonation are key, especially for the beginning student; they help to build a great foundation in which to expand your playing.

I'm not traveling at this time as I don't have access to a reliable vehicle, but I'm hoping that this changes fairly soon.

I hope that I can be your guide into this wonderful world! :)

NAfME Interview in their October 2014 Issue. 1st Clarinet in the National Band "WindWorks" of Washington D.C. (recordings on youtube). I can take you to the next level and well beyond that!

I feel privileged to be able to write this review. David was my son Sunil's saxophone instructor throughout middle and high school, and his supporter through college. Under David's expert instruction Sunil earned the award for Pennsylvania All State Musician in alto sax as a high school senior. In addition to David's incredible expertise in performance music and his high level teaching skills, he is a very generous and patient and caring person. Over the course of years David became a true friend to Sunil, and to our whole family. I would recommend David to any music student unconditionally.

David Blumberg is an awesome musician and teacher who truly wants his students to shine! He taught my daughter at his location in High School, and via Skype once she advanced to college. David fostered my daughter's love of the clarinet and helped her to improve and accomplish her musical goals. Whether the goal was to make District Band in High School, to successfully audition in college, or to improve sound & technique, David Blumberg has provided motivation and technical expertise!

Dave is unquestionably the best teacher I have ever had in the 60+ years that I have been playing the clarinet. Although I had been away from playing for some time, Dave provided gentle advice and direction that has significantly improved my technique, tone, and musicianship as well as my confidence as a clarinetist. Dave is able to establish a great rapport with his students both mature and young. He understands their needs and goals and helps them achieve those goals. Thanks to Dave's encouragement and help, I was recently accepted as a member of a fine regional symphonic band. Above all, a lesson with Dave is not only instructive--it's also fun.

Beginner to intermediate level; also performance prep for advanced level

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation

Through the foundation I've gained by the influences of Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, and Suzuki musical instruction methods, I compile my own teaching materials. Using personally constructed guitar lessons, I demonstrate, instruct, and guide the student based on my assessment of their individual needs, skill level, and progress. Lessons are formulated in Modules, and advancement through them is based on the student's personal aptitude, skill level, and practice commitment. Learning is accomplished by ear as well as through essential methods of musical notation (tablature, 5-line staff, rhythmic comprehension). Students are trained to perform written music as well as to write and express the music within themselves.
I'm an encouraging and motivating guitar teacher with a casual relaxed approach. Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.

About Scott
Through formal and self- instructed lessons from age 12, I've learned country, folk, blues, rock, and metal techniques and formed several local bands as lead vocalist and lead/rhythm guitarist.
Writing and recording my own music has been a hobby for over 30 years.
Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.
An active music enthusiast from a young age, I learned clarinet technique and music theory from age 9 through public schools, performing in orchestra and marching band.

Developing and understanding Clarinet fundamentals are crucial to Clarinet playing no matter the level of playing. Focusing and cultivating good fundamental habits will lead to a students success. Finding the joy, love, and passion in music is just as important while developing good habits.

These good habits can be developed through the help with Band and Orchestral music, Solo Repertoire, and basic method books. Whether you're just starting to learn clarinet, looking for more guidance, or even looking to re-kindle your love for the clarinet, I can help you achieve your clarinet goals.

About Michael
I am currently a Senior Clarinet performance major at DePaul University studying with the now retired Principal Clarinet of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Larry Combs.

Not only is teaching one of my favorite parts of music, it is a very important part of music. Lessons will include the development of skills such as tone production, embouchure, proper technique, knowledge of Clarinet repertoire, reading music and much more that is equally important to successful Clarinet playing.
