With teaching clarinet I really like to gauge where the student is at first. I like to approach my teaching and lessons around a strong fundamental understanding of the instrument. Each week will be structured with basic fundamentals, musical exercises, and genre exploration. I love showing my students what the clarinet can do and how it has been used in history and how it can be applied within modern music.

About Hunter N.

Hello!

My name is Hunter Nicholson and I'm based out of Eau Claire Wisconsin. Here at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, I received a Bachelors in clarinet performance. While in college I also took multiple years of piano lessons, which was my first instrument. I've been playing the clarinet for 15 years and piano for 17 years. Along with playing/teaching clarinet, I also teach and play flute and saxophone for fun! I'm looking for more students to expand my studio. I currently have been teaching online clarinet, flute, and saxophone lessons for about two years now. My teaching journey started in 2014 at the Lawrence Academy of Music, music camps located in Appleton, Wisconsin. Here I got a lot of experience teaching large groups and one on one lessons. This experience has helped me grow my online studio and share my love for music and these instruments. Most of my students are based out of Minneaplois but I’m looking for students from all around the midwest. My clarinet students range from beginners to intermediate and advanced. All of my flute and sax students range from beginners to intermediate. My musical interests range from classical, jazz, experimental music, folk, and everything in between. Locally, I'm a member of the Chippewa Valley Orchestra, the Chippewa Valley Chamber Orchestra, and multiple local groups and bands. While I am an active classical musician, I also like to experiment with what the clarinet can sound like and where the clarinet can be performed. Some of my most favorite gigs have been in peoples living rooms or at open mics. My current project I’m working on involves loop stations for solo clarinet, and original pieces for eclectic bass and clarinet. Along with my solo project, I’m a very active collaborator and enjoy scoring films for artists and independent film makers.

Experience

Private Music Instructor
Sep 2019 - Present

David Thomas School of Music

With being contracted through David Thomas School of Music based out of Minneapolis, I have been fortunate to have found many amazing students. This was also the first time I got to teach online and it has been going wonderfully the last two years. Getting to share my knowledge with my students and seeing them learn/improve weekly, is the highlight of my week! I have a student who's been studying with me since I started here and many of the students I pick up end up continuing studying with me.

I was very lucky to teach students of all ages clarinet and other basic music skills. At this music camp that I was once a camper attending, I got a lot of hands-on experience teaching big groups and one on one lessons. This job is what inspired me to teach and pursue music as a career.
