Lesson Details

Clarinet

Levels Taught:
Beginner
I have played the clarinet for 18+ years. I have performed with local (SEIBA), collegiate (Central College & University of Iowa), and state (Iowa) honor bands with the clarinet. I specialize in beginner students (all ages) who are just just learning and beginning with the clarinet. For students that don't know if they want to play the clarinet, I can provide use of a beginner clarinet (it will stay at my home, and it is a well loved and used marching band clarinet, so please know, it's not in great shape). Lessons take place in my home office; message me to see if this might be a fit for you.

I started playing the clarinet in the 5th grade and have been playing for 18+ years. I enjoy sharing my passion for playing the clarinet and enjoy teaching and looking for ways to help someone learn. I specialize in scales, fundamentals and general study for beginners (all ages).

I have performed with local (SEIBA), collegiate (Central College & University of Iowa), and state (Iowa) honor bands with the clarinet.

Lessons take place in my home office (in person or virtually); message me to see if this might be a fit for you.

Fun Facts:
* I have a rescue dog whose name was Princess in the shelter. I couldn't take her "title" away, so her full title is "Princess Molly of Merriam" - Call her Molly :)
* I also play the tuba, flute, marimba/bells, valve trombone & piano
* I love home projects
* Did you watch my video? You'll see that I have worked with some pretty incredible accounts (work related, not music related)
* I took my passion for performing and let it help me pay for college!

I have been taking online lessons with Victoria for 4 weeks. I am learning so much more than I anticipated. She is extremely knowledge in the language and foundations of music. More than that, she easily inspires and builds your confidence level.
