Level up your clarinet skills with personalized lessons from a pro
I am an experienced Clarinet teacher of 5 years available for eager students! Whether you are picking up Clarinet for the very first time or you are at a more advanced level of playing, I structure my lessons so that you learn what you want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technical ability and excellent musicianship. I specialize in teaching concert band style music, however I can teach jazz styles as well. For beginning students I typically use Measures of Success Book #1. For more advanced students I recommend Standard of Excellence book #2 and book #3.
About Vivian L.

Hello and welcome to my TakeLessons profile! My name is Vivian and I have been teaching private lessons on various instruments since 2013. I have also been teaching professionally in public schools since 2015. I play and teach several instruments including Ukulele, French Horn, Trumpet, Clarinet, Trombone, Flute and I also love to sing! In 2015 I graduated with honors from East Carolina University, earning my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. My students can expect to see improvement week to week in their playing technique. Every musician learns at their own pace, and I will treat you as the individual that you are. I can help any beginner no matter what sort of musical experience they bring to the table! There is no greater joy for me than seeing a student smile and shine when they master a new note, song, or technique. It is those precious lightbulb moments that made me fall in love with teaching! --- Some "Fun Facts" about me: *I LOVE to play video games!!! (Xbox1, Mobile, and PC) *I'm a bookworm and I am always reading something new *I have 2 dogs, their names are Ollie and Lily *I listen to ALL kinds of music! Yes I really do mean ALL!!! I listen to Pop, R&B, Jazz, Rock, Reggaeton, Rap, Classical, Country, Oldies, Bluegrass, Alternative, Funk, Techno....the list goes on forever!

VIVIAN IS FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Posted Jan 6, 2022

Vivian is a very sweet person who is interested in her student and works at every level to understand the requirements of the student and meet those requirements in the best way. She is encouraging, understanding, and also a good listener -- conscientiously responding to details. Today was just our first intro lesson and I'm sure that I will learn a lot from her! Thank you so much Vivian for your kindness!

Vivian makes learning the clarinet fun and I look forward to every lesson. She has already taught me new notes and songs after just five lessons. She was also open to incorporating music from my favorite movies (Harry Potter) into my lesson plans. The music is more advanced for me and so I really appreciate Vivian’s patience and her demonstrations so I know exactly what to play for each song. I’m glad to have Vivian as my teacher.
