Learning to play the clarinet can be an immensely fun and rewarding experience! As a teacher, it is my goal to share my love for music with my students so they too can develop a passion for it. In my lessons I provide students with strong fundamental musical skills necessary to become a successful clarinetist. Furthermore, I believe that if I can teach my students to analyze their playing like I analyze my own, they will become motivated self teachers and life-long learners.

About Jack K.

I am a clarinetist, educator, and performer that has a passion for all kinds of music. With a diverse portfolio of performance experiences ranging from large ensembles to chamber music, and from solo recitals to new music premiers, I have a firm grasp on many different musical styles and techniques. Professionally, I have worked as a freelance musician across the country playing holiday ceremonies to pops concerts, and various other recordings projects. I currently perform as the 2nd clarinetist with the Owensboro Symphony in Kentucky. Diversifying my playing experiences has helped me to be a well rounded performer, as well as a knowledgeable educator to my students.
