I want to help you make your dreams a reality. Whether it is preparing for a university audition or learning for the first time. Each student brings their own energy and flavor to the clarinet. I partner with each student to shape the player they want to be.

About Taggart L.

I have a bachelor's Degree from Boise State University in Music Education with an emphasis on clarinet performance and have taught music for 6 years in public schools. I also have my level I and II Orff certifications. I have done clinics with marching bands, beginning bands, orchestra and even had the opportunity to coach a SiNEM orchestra in Acosta, Costa Rica. I love teaching clarinet and strive to expose the unique voice of each of my students and work along side them to accomplish their goals. It is important to consider all of the factors that go into playing and performing and I delight in showing students how breaking past mental barriers can be the fastest and most enjoyable way to success. I teach in Meridian and Boise, but will be travelling across the state, so please contact me if you are outside of the Boise area. My mission is to build a community of motivated and passionate clarinetists In Idaho.

Mr Lewis is fantastic. He truly loves teaching kids to love music. My grandson first had him as a 5th grade music teacher and now as a private instructor for his clarinet. He takes each student at their own pace, encouraging them along the way to stretch and challenge.
