Lesson Details

Clarinet

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been teaching Woodwinds for quite a few years and I love it! My students have seen results from learning to love to practice, to competitive success in solo competitions. When you first come you will start to think about music in a simpler way and will gain the confidence and understanding you need to play how you would like. Normally, I use The Rubank Method to develop a lot of technique in younger students. For those playing jazz or folk, we do a lot of play alongs while focusing on specific concepts.

June 2007

Hello my name is Henrik! I have been playing the saxophone ever since I first picked one up in grade school. I consider myself a goofy individual who takes my instrument very seriously. I have been teaching private students for about eight years. I am currently getting my degree in Saxophone Performance from BYU. I love it when my students learn to have fun while practicing and gain confidence in performing. No matter your schedule or location, I am determined to make a difference and help people improve. I have a flexible class schedule that allows you to pick a time that works best for you.

I find it most successful to prepare a lesson for each student before hand, rather than going over the same thing with every one of them. You can expect a well rounded range of exercises and practice techniques. From motif development, tune memorization and progressive patterns, to theory studies, music analyzation and playing along with the great recordings with the pros.

Mr. Henrik is teaching my son with flexible teaching plans and he adjust the contents based on my son's progress. He also shared his tips and his understanding of music with the student and take time to listen and answer any questions my son has. We can feel the improvement after three lessons and we are looking forward to more lessons from Mr. Henrik

I took music theory in high school and it made zero sense! After I graduated I was determined to figure it out so I went hunting for a teacher. Eventually I found Henrik and he was one of the greatest teachers ecspecially for such a hard concept. So thankful for the lessons. I highly suggest taking any of his lessons if he can teach music theory.

You can definitely see the passion he has for the saxophone. My first lesson, he asked me what my goals were, and taught me in a simple way, gauging how I was learning throughout the lesson.
