Music is a valuable tool for self expression and personal development. It empowers students to think creatively and optimistically, and it also provides a platform to learn widely-applicable skills. I aim to help my students feel understood, heard, and confident through the power of their craft. By making these skills feel accessible, familiar, and fun, I am confident that students will excel!

Students will learn about efficient practice, creative problem solving, and storytelling through their art, as well as craft components like tone, rhythm, articulation, intonation, and scales/technique. We can also discuss how to read music and understand music notation.

I am able to teach clarinet as well as bass clarinet.

As a graduate student at the Mannes School of Music, I understand and still face the challenges of practicing and progressing on the clarinet. HOWEVER, I also know how rewarding it feels to overcome each obstacle! I aim to make this process joyful.

Lastly, and most importantly, I am here for you as a resource, guide, and friend. I am so excited to get started!

About Emmalie T.

“In over 60 years of playing the clarinet, Emmalie has been my best teacher. While always keeping focus on where the musical line wants to travel, Emmalie at the same time keeps track of the fundamentals : breathing, embouchure, finger placement, tongue location, etc. Emmalie is wonderfully communicative and always cheerful and energetic.”

- Jeffrey Stark, student since 2019

Emmalie is a graduate of the Mannes College of Music in New York City with both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. She has performed at venues including Carnegie Hall, the New York City Center, and Lincoln Center, and she has performed as an orchestral member with esteemed groups like the Martha Graham Dance Company. She has 6+ years experience teaching students privately and in group setting, and I co-founded and direct a music education organization called Art Beyond the Ink. She believes every piece of music can create imagery and narratives, and she wants to help others find this joy. Let's tell stories together! Full bio available online
