We use Mrs. Riccobono as a clinician and coach at our school and she does a fantastic job!

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

Worked with Jeanmarie over the summer on chamber music. She's very supportive and always has a variety of recommendations on how to improve things whether it's ensemble skills or individual skills.

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.
