I've played bass clarinet for over 20 years. I really enjoy bass clarinet and look forward to teaching students the differences when switching from clarinet to bass clarinet, or starting this instrument for the first time.
About Tina D.

Hello! I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am Associate Director of Bands at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL. I have degrees in music education and conducting, and I was a high school music teacher & band director in the Philadelphia area for 7 years. I also work as a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you! Your lesson specifics are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals. I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun. If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician. Online lessons are a wonderful option! I am flexible with scheduling and allow changes up to 24-hours before a scheduled lesson.
