The thing I love most about playing clarinet is that there’s always something new to learn. In our clarinet lessons, I want us to embrace this mindset, and have fun! I have 7+ years of teaching experience from beginning to to advanced levels. In our lessons, we’ll focus on building up fundamental skills, note reading, learning new pieces, and how to create thoughtful, virtuosic music. The most important thing to me is to making my students feel welcome, heard, and to give them the platform to express themselves. Music is a tool and something that allows us to communicate our feelings in an entirely new way. As a teacher, I want to help them navigate that process and learn so many new things through clarinet!
