I have been a freelance performer and instructor for seven years and I bring a fresh and fun approach to the clarinet. The student will learn how to implement the fundamentals of playing with the goal of building those in to habit. I combine the Opperman and Marcellus methods to achieve superior tone, technique and staccato to help the student excel in all his/her musical endeavors. I have completed a clear background check with the Music Teachers Network, as well.
Students will learn the basic fundamentals of tone, technique and musicianship through a variety of different methods that cater to each individual student and their personal goals and interests. Also providing them with the necessary skills to play with ease and comfort. The goal is teaching the fundamental approaches of clarinet and establish them as habit.
I balance traditional methods with light-hearted pieces to help my students continue to grow as a musician. My students rate high in school competitions and are encouraged to perform whenever possible.
My curriculum includes standard scales, method books and solos as well as pieces of the students' own choosing. I have over 30 years' experience in musical education and performance and continue to maintain my status as a performing artist.
Fran has been playing clarinet since junior high band. After studying at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI, she has been teaching privately and performing in church, community and professional organizations throughout the US.

Lesson details: half-hour sessions will take the student through standard method books, scales and etudes to help develop different techniques. Students are encouraged to participate in performance as an outlet for their skills. We will also use technology to enhance these time honored techniques; such as recording and online assignments for enrichment.
Teaching private clarinet lessons was the way I discovered that I wanted to be a teacher. I began teaching private clarinet lessons to beginners while in high school, where I played with the Wind Symphony (top band) all four years under the direction of John Heath. I also played with the Philharmonic (top) Orchestra, and sat first chair in each during my senior year. I played solo clarinet for the DuPage Youth Symphony Orchestra, as well.
I have experience with IMEA auditions and music, and during my years of teaching, my students went on to place into IMEA honor bands, first division of solo and ensemble competitions, and private youth orchestras. I also have experience coaching students on audition pieces as well as solos for competitions, technique, and music theory.
I can provide recommendations on music stores, books, reeds, and more. Whether you want help with music for your band or orchestra, supplementary lessons to go beyond school music education, coaching on a solo, ...
