As a professional orchestral clarinetist and bass clarinetist, I am uniquely suited to help students master the basics of clarinet playing or to help more advanced students take their playing to new levels. I focus on building strong technique and broad musicianship that will serve learners of all ages and ability levels in any genre.

About Emily C.

Hello, I'm Emily, and I'd love to help you on your musical journey!

I have years of experience teaching woodwind and piano lessons to students of all ages and backgrounds, from children beginning band programs and adults picking up a new hobby to serious students working to embark on a career as music performers and educators themselves. I also enjoy working with children and adults with special needs, including students on the autism spectrum.

I currently perform in the clarinet sections of the Evansville Philharmonic, Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, and the Johnstown Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Grammy Award-winning Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and several others. I serve as the Artistic Director of Kamratōn, a chamber ensemble dedicated to women-created and women-curated new music. I’ve played with jazz-fusion ensemble the Afro-Yaqui Music Collective at venues in Pittsburgh and New York City, and I enjoy performing as an improvisor. I’ve also worked as a church pianist, and enjoy teaching all genres of piano performance.

Currently, I lead the bands and ukulele ensemble at St. Vincent in Bedford, IN. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have, and I look forward to meeting you!

Emily was the perfect Piano Teacher for my six-year-old! She was very friendly, shared her screen to show her fingers on the keyboard, and my daughter loved learning from her! We are looking forward to next week.

My son had his first lesson with Ms. Emily. She is AMAZING! Teaching piano takes skill, doing so virtually is a task not to be unscored. Ms. Emily really knows her stuff, she has excellent music ear to pick up if my 7 year old made a mistake or not. I can't wait for my son to enroll in long term with her. Thank you!
