I always gear lessons toward the individual student's goals and interests! Clarinet can fit into almost any musical setting. Classical, pop, theatre, jazz, and more!

About Michael H.

I received my bachelors degree in music education and jazz studies from Western Michigan University, and my master's in jazz studies from Temple University in Philadelphia.

I have played saxophone, flute and clarinet professionally in many different settings. My favorite genre to play and teach is jazz, and I have also played classical music, theatre productions, and pop/rock concerts. I also write and arrange music for my own bands and creative projects.

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years and I always try to help my students reach their personal goals and feel a sense of enjoyment when learning a musical instruments. I can't wait to work with you!

I've been with Micheal for over two years now and he has helped me a ton. He's helped my technique, understanding of theory and the music I'm playing. I have recently started flute and he has given me great guidance on how I can improve and it has help tremendously.
Out of all the private lesson teachers I've had, Micheal is by far the best. I highly recommend him.

Michael is a fantastic teacher. He is very knowledgeable, and is great at explaining techniques in ways that are easy to understand. I notice immediate improvements upon beginning to implement his suggestions, which is exciting and motivating. He is patient and fun to work with. I highly recommend lessons with Michael!

I can’t speak highly enough about Mr. Hudson’s lessons. I’m fairly new to the clarinet, and his passion for the instrument and music as a whole has always been so inspiring to me. He really works to make each lesson a unique experience, and makes sure that we have fun while learning and growing! I’d recommend him to anyone.

Michael is a great teacher and our lessons are always fun! He has helped me improve significantly in jazz improvisation and technical skills. I have been studying with him for almost 3 years and I look always look forward to our weekly lesson. I recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve musically and have fun at the same time!

I took lessons with Mr. Hudson for 2 years as he introduced and advanced my knowledge of being a great jazz musician. I appreciate that he had my goals in mind and let me be the leader of my own lessons, but also always knew where to guide me when I was lost.
