Jeanmarie is a wonderful clarinet teacher! I took lessons with her at Bay View Music Festival, and I also had her as a chamber coach there. She's very supportive and gave me lots of fresh ideas that have greatly helped my playing. She's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet - I highly recommend her!

I experienced Jeanmarie as a chamber coach this past summer and had a fantastic time. She is supportive and constructive, but also quite insightful and experienced! I would highly recommend her!

Hi, JeanMarie lives in my community, she is a great person and teacher. I am a middle school band director in Traverse City, Michigan. I wish JeanMarie could teach ALL our clarinets!

With an undergraduate degree from Eastman and a Masters from Northwestern, we are VERY fortunate to have JeanMarie in our community.

I often contract her to come in to coach/teach our beginning, 7th, & 8th grade clarinets.....she also is a substitute teacher in our district.

JeanMarie Riccobono is a top-notch clarinet teacher. She will do wonders for you or your student.

Thank you,
Flournoy Humphreys

Jeanmarie is a wonderful clarinet instructor. I studied with her while attending Bay View Chamber Music Festival during the summer of 2015, and had a great experience. Jeanmarie helped me renew my passion for the clarinet and gave me a sense of confidence about my musical ability that I had not experienced before. Jeanmarie is extremely thorough in her teaching and is a wonderful clarinetist. I highly recommend Jeanmarie to any clarinet student.
