About Ashley B.

Hi! My name is Ashley. I am 22 years old and am a recent Alum of UCLA. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education with an emphasis in oboe and clarinet. I am currently the High School Music Director at St. Anthony High School in Long Beach, CA. I played clarinet and oboe in the UCLA Wind Ensemble and clarinet in the UCLA Marching Band. I have been playing clarinet for 13 years and oboe for 7. For reference, I also play English Horn and Bass Clarinet. I joined band in 5th grade and absolutely fell in love with it. Over time, I realized I also am very passionate about teaching and helping people. Therefore, I decided to study music education. My goal was to become a middle/high school band/orchestra director, and this year I achieved that goal! My background with teaching includes working at a daycare during my senior year of high school, being in music leadership all 4 years of high school, teaching private oboe and clarinet lessons for 5 years, (including my 11-year-old brother), a six month internship in a high school band program, student teaching for 3 months for Elementary General Music, and for 6 months for Middle School Band. I am extremely passionate about kids, music, and teaching! Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you!

My son's first lesson was great. Ashley is great with him and takes time to explain. Very excited for future lessons.

My daughter just started clarinet. I was unsure whether online lessons would work for a beginner, but they have! They are easy to schedule, easy because you don't leave your home, and they are working well. Ashley is knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and patient. My daughter has progressed very well in just a month of lessons. Ashley is very supportive, which is needed when starting a new instrument.

As a trumpet player, I am well-versed in music. I have sat in on a couple lessons, and I am very pleased with Ashley's teaching technique and approach. My daughter loves her, too. I would certainly recommend Ashley as a teacher.
