Even though these are clarinet lessons you'll be taking, I would be using the clarinet as a tool to bring you into the beautiful world of music. That means that other than technical things such as sound and fingerings, we'd be talking about what makes the music that you're playing great and how to best convey it in your playing. Come study with a professional performing clarinetist with extensive teaching experience in all ages and levels. Whatever music style you're into (classical/jazz/klezmer...), I'd be happy to focus on.

About Moran K.

Hi! I'm a Juilliard graduate clarinetist (BM, MM, AD), currently on the Juilliard Pre College Division faculty [chamber music] as well as at Vassar College (teaching clarinet). I perform extensively as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. Although I'm mostly classically trained, I play jazz and klezmer as well.

I look forward to meeting you!

Perhaps the best teacher I’ve ever had—in any discipline, at any age. When I first began two years ago, I couldn’t read a note of music and had never played any instrument. Since then, thanks to Moran’s patience and guidance, I can play with confidence at a level I never imagined. Wonderful, kind, yet demanding teacher who enjoys teaching and takes great pride in the progress of her students

A wonderful clarinetist, musician, and teacher! She explains and demonstrates the physical and musical aspects of clarinet-playing clearly so that you can build a solid foundation and progress rapidly. Very highly recommended!

Moran is an insightful, creative, patient and persistent teacher. Knowledgeable in both music and theory. She is the quintessential teacher and performing artist rolled into one. I highly recommend her for any level of playing. Moran has been teaching me for probably about 10 years.
