My son started to play saxophone a few years ago and he really liked it up until this year. Not a lot was happening with band lessons online this year hence no progress and no motivation. I reached out to Michael with the only goal in mind: to spark the passion to play saxophone for my 12y.o. son again. We've already had a bit over 10 lessons and my son loves his lessons. I can see really good progress but most importantly he wants to play. It's not a chore for him any more. It's actually fun and he enjoys it. Now we can build on that. Michael has great attitude and communicates with kids very well. He definitely has a passion for music and it translates to kids.
Liam
Michael has great energy and excitement for the music. He picked a great fitting piece to work on with our teenager. He helped our son to remember why he loves music and recapture some lost skills with all the COVID down time. Thank you!
Heather
My son looks forward to lessons every week. He loves the music recommended by Michael to practice and has improved in tonality and technical skills. It has been a great experience.

Private Clarinet Teacher

I have been teaching clarinet for nearly thirty years (beginning to college level), and particularly enjoy teaching out of the Klosé method in a way that is interactive and enjoyable. While learning solid technique, we will include resonator fingerings for the best possible tone, and think beyond the wonderful clarinet literature waiting for you, as we unlock your personality in the chameleon quality of the clarinet. I encourage students to also play by ear and learn cultural traditional music from all over the world.

He has performed throughout the US and Denmark, as well as Iceland (International Viola Congress) and Holland (World Bass Clarinet Conference). He taught for many years at The C

A great first lesson. Aage was able to identify my level and chart a course for lessons quickly, drawing on lots of resources and knowledge. I’m just starting clarinet with plenty of saxophone experience, and I think Aage is the right person to guide me.

My former students have been selected to be in the Colorado All-State Honor Band and have been accepted to their top choice colleges for music performance. In 2016, I attended the Aspen Summer Music Festival, where I learned a great deal about clarinet and teaching.

Chelsea was very patient and listened to my concerns. She had material ready for me to play and was very kind when she corrected me. She always found something I did right even when I made mistakes. Very good teacher!
Karen
Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea

We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

"My son had his first lesson today and has already learned so many things! When the lesson ended, he smiled and told me it was so much fun and the teacher was nice. My son is a beginner at clarinet and usually has a hard time with learning new things, but he was able to understand Jason very well.
Jason is friendly, focused, patient, knowledgeable, confident, professional, and cool. He is organized and communicated clearly what we need to work on and what is the upcoming plan. Jason is awesome and exceeded my expectations. My son is really looking forward to his next lesson!"
