I've been teaching clarinet lessons for over 40 years, all levels, including adults. I especially enjoy teaching middle school students and beginners. Graduated from University of North Texas with a Bachelor's in clarinet performance, and was a member of the Air Force Band. I have taught private lessons in public school band programs in Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin and New England, where I prepared students for auditions and had many place in region and all-state bands.

Learning to read music and transfer the notes on the page to an instrument holds great cognitive benefit for children. From better math skills to improved reading comprehension. And of course there's the emotional expression to be learned. There's a particular technique on clarinet I teach my students as soon as they are able that always gets them started on playing musically. As a teacher, it's always wonderful to hear that happen!

About Cindy I.

I have been teaching private clarinet lessons for over 40 years. I teach my students, beginner to advanced, how to best control the instrument in order to express themselves through music. I know which pieces in the clarinet literature will teach phrasing and musicality to a young player. We play long tones in order to produce a beautiful sound and learn the two best ways to practice to play with good technique: playing accurately and fast. Hearing a student improve and find their way musically, emotionally and thoughtfully through a piece is very rewarding. Learning an instrument offers a unique way to instill discipline and show the rewards of hard work. I have loved music all my life, and the best part is sharing it with a young player and uncovering their talent and seeing them become enthusiastic about the music and the instrument.
