While it's not my main instrument, i have been playing clarinet for several years including playing in the Illinois Lyric theatre production of Crazy for You on clarinet. I also play in the university of Illinois Hindsley Symphonic Band on first clarinet and in the University of Illinois Clarinet Choir. I can teach beginner level clarinet such as basic technique and embouchure as well as tone and even some jazz clarinet if the student is interested!

About Adam N.

Hello future students!
My name is Adam and I am a recent graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign with a bachelors degree in Jazz Saxophone. While I might be young, I do have teaching experience with middle school band. I hope to pass on what I've learned from my teachers, Charles McNeill and Debra Richtmeyer, two world-renowned professionals. My main instrument is saxophone, however, I do double on both clarinet and flute and have a background in piano as well! I would love to teach any beginner or intermediate level students and would be willing to do online lessons at the time due to Covid-19. I look forward to growing with you musically!
