The Colony, TX
View Full Profile

I teach all instrument levels and all ages.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

About Lisa C.

Rockwall, TX
View Full Profile

I've been playing clarinet for 30 years and teaching for about 20.

For my beginning students I like the Essential Elements series as well as the Klose method.

About Lisa
I have been a music teacher and private lesson instructor for the past 20 years. I have a bachelor of science degree in Music Education and hold a teaching certificate for all-level Music Education. In my private studio I have taught students from 3-70 and have enjoyed them all! In addition to teaching music I also serve as the Music Minister for my church. Students coming to me can expect a tremendous amount of experience as well as a committed, honest and caring teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning piano students at the pre-reading level (ages 3-6ish) I like to use the Faber "My First Piano Adventure" series. I love that this series enforces solid technique in a fun, child-friendly way.

For older beginners and players with some piano I like the Alfred series, supplemented, of course, with songs/styles of music that i
nterest the student.

Guitar: I've found that guitar method books are nearly as diverse as the guitarists that play them! That being said, I typically start with the Essential Elements for guitar for a solid introduction to music reading and a touch of theory.

Depending on the style of play the guitarist is interested in I move on from there. Mel Bays Classical method is always a solid choice as is the Christopher Parkening Guitar method. I also have a few tab oriented books and some rock/blues oriented books.

For clarinet and oboe students I like to compliment what their band/orchestra director is using when possible. I also love the Klose method for clarinet. The Rubank is also a tried and true book I use. I've had a lot of success with these books.

Of course the best method books are for naught without adequate practice time! When theory and technique work get too dry it's always fun to throw in some fun selections to compliment the "work."

Voice students are a bit different in that I don't use a specific method to instruct. I have many books that I draw from when teaching voice due to the unique nature of the individual. Depending on the style of music, from classical to jazz/pop, I have music that will teach proper breath support, vowel placement and tone.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: converted dining room with 3 guitars, young percussion instruments, upright piano and f/w keyboard. Seating available for parents.
Music ministry at First Christian Church in Terrell. Access to choir room with upright piano. Seating available for parents.

*** Specialties ***
Degree in all-level music education with specialty in voice.

I am mostly laid back, however, I do demand excellence and great tonal projection. For clarinet, I really like Klose's method, however, I use a lot of Rose Etudes, Voxman, etc. Sightreading is a focus in clarinet lessons as well as ear training and theoretical concepts such as building tetrachords, identifying major or minor intervals, familiarity with major and all forms of the minor scale as well. Special attention is given to hand position as well as noticing and achieving tonal excellence. For violin, special emphasis is placed upon proper bowing technique, left hand position, and ear training to improve intonation. Scales and arpeggios would be the building blocks to flawless technique. Method book that I prefer would include the Suzuki and Flesch methods. In all instruments that I teach, I also utilize You Tube videos to enhance the learning process.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect all students to have a stand and a metronome/tuner. With piano students I have a variety of educational games that make learning fun and easier. I usually travel with a whiteboard and manuscript paper in order to test music writing ability.

*** Specialties ***
I teach mainly in the classical genre....for Violin I like the Suzuki method, though I can teach through any method. I am aware of the freedom of jazz improvisation as well.

Damien has tremendous patience in listening to my 8-year-olds chatter and redirecting him back to the lesson when he gets off track. My son enjoys his lessons and looks forward to having Damien over!

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.

About Victoria
Note: If you are interested in lessons in the Des Moines area, please message me about my in studio lesson availability through TakeLessons. Availability for in studio lessons varies seasonally due to home projects.

Hi, there! My name is Victoria and I can't wait to meet you! I am available for in-studio (my home) and online lessons. I have been playing the clarinet for over 21 years and teaching music since 2017. I teach all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced. Please note that I take a limited number of advanced students. Please message me to see if I have availability for you/your advanced student. Please also take a moment to view the videos on my profile as I answer some frequently asked questions.

I love helping my students work toward their individual goals, overcome challenges and have fun with musi
c. I have helped students audition and make the Iowa All-State Band, play songs that students want to play/perform, help with memorization of scales, teach beginner fundamentals of music and the clarinet, helped students audition for college music programs and for solo/ensemble contests. I work with your goals and help craft a lesson plan that is specific to you.

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

At times I can accommodate additional times other than what is listed.

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'm on my third lesson and really enjoying them. Victoria and I have a great rapport and the lessons are filled with learning, laughter (mostly because I can laugh easily at my mistakes, not HER laughing at me!!), and they are so fun! I'm doing super well because she is able to tailor her teaching style to my learning style. I can't say enough how much this helps. Looking forward to the rest of my lessons!

Wonderful teacher! My daughter was a bit unsure about taking online lessons and continuing with the clarinet, but she is enthusiastically practicing between lessons now and making way more progress than she did with in-person lessons at school. We're so lucky to have Victoria as a teacher and highly recommend her.

I’m a professional clarinetist and woodwind instructor with 8 years of teaching experience, four of which include instruction at institutions of higher learning. I have a passion for developing smaller studios into well-established programs and helping students define and accomplish their musical goals.

About Leslie
Leslie is a Denver based musician—clarinetist and teacher—who performs in solo and collaborative projects across the state while maintaining an active teaching studio. Leslie is in high demand as both a performer and teacher. Recent performances include solo performances is Denver and Stapleton, several chamber performances with her wind trio Enigma and the Lamont Clarinet Choir, and appearances with the Lone Tree Symphony, the San Juan Symphony, Lakewood Symphony, the Denver Pops Orchestra, the Littleton Symphony, the Lamont Symphony Orchestra, and extensive time playing Eb clarinet with the Lamont Wind Ensemble.

After she began playing clarinet with her hands switched, and consequently as the worst clarinetist in her band, Leslie began studying privately and soon discovered a passion for teaching and helping her own students improve
the way her teachers helped her. Leslie is a passionate educator who has spent time on faculty at Mt. Holyoke College and the Eaglebrook School. She currently maintains a private studio in Denver and is an active guest clinician across Colorado.

Leslie studied clarinet at Adams State, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and recently completed a Performance Certificate at the University of Denver.

For over more than 20 years I have had many successful students, who have enjoyed playing and studying with me. Teaching is a life-giver for me--I enjoy introducing students to the joys of different musical ideas, concepts, and ways that they can advance on their instrument. Things that I have enjoyed learning and playing over the years, that I can pass on to them to explore and enjoy. I hold both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Music, and have taught as an adjunct on the college level, high school, and privately. On the college level, I have taught clarinet, saxophone, and flute at three colleges, a Woodwind Methods class for five years, developed jazz ensembles, and developed and procured music for woodwind trios and saxophone quartets.

I have played professionally in these settings; jazz, symphonic, pit orchestra, and general business entertainment freelance as a woodwinds specialist.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile.

I have taught clarinet lessons to children from ages 10-18 for 8 years. I take care to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of each child, and I design lesson plans for each student using those observations.

During the lesson, I cater my teaching techniques to the skill level and personality of each student. I also take notes on a Google Doc file detailing what we work on and what the student should practice for the future. The Doc link is sent to parents and to the student, if applicable.

I have a Bachelors degree in Music Education and Music Composition from the University of Georgia. My clarinet professor, Dr. D. Ray McClellan, is a triple Juilliard graduate, and I have studied with him for 6 years.

I have completed Levels I and II of Orff-Schulwerk teacher training, meaning that I specialize in teaching music through movement, drama, and speech. I want each student to have an active and fun music making ...

About Corinne
Hello! Thank you for checking out my TakeLessons profile. My name is Corinne, and my passion is teaching. Great teachers can have lasting effects on their students, and I cherish the possibility of improving my students’ lives through music.

When I'm teaching a lesson, it may seem on the surface that we're only practicing how to play their instrument well. However, with every student that I meet, my goal is to help them learn how to set and achieve realistic goals. A brand new clarinet student’s weekly goal may be to play their instrument for 10 seconds without taking a breath. An advanced clarinet student’s goal may be to master a piece for their college audition. Both students have challenging goals based on their skill level, but the goals look very different!

I believe that goal-setting is an important life skill that can set a
nyone on a path to greatness – as long as they know how to follow through.
My goal is to help YOU reach your goals.

When I am not working with students, you can find me working on my own goals! I practice all of my instruments often, and I am working hard to become a great tap dancer. My non-musical interests include learning about the coffee-making process, learning how to make costumes from scratch, and playing The Sims.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope to meet you soon!

Montgomery, AL

I am a professional clarinetist with over 15 years of teaching experience. I have a B. Mus in clarinet performance from Oberlin Conservatory and a M. Mus in bass clarinet performance from Rotterdam Conservatory.
In my teaching approach, I emphasize basic techniques, such as breathing, articulation, and finger technique at all levels of teaching because I believe we get better by refining our most basic actions as wind musicians. Typical classes with me involve scales, etudes, and repertoire, although I can help on specific auditions or clarinet related problems.
I have successfully helped my students place in International competitions, win jobs in orchestras, perform as soloists, prepare recitals, and All-State.

About Bob
I am a professional clarinetist with a master's degree and over 15 years of teaching experience.

My classes focus on both the technical side of playing clarinet and how to develop and express your own musical expression through the music that we learn. I use scales and technical studies as a spring board to discuss the technical problems (air, articulation, and finger technique), and musical pieces to discuss expression and style.

I graduated from McKinney Boyd HS in 2016. As such, I have a fresh perspective on what it takes to succeed as a student music- not only from the outside, but also from the inside. I have a formal college education in music performance, and have been very successful in my own musical endeavors. I made the all-state band twice during high school, and was selected as the winner for notable competitions both in McKinney and at SHSU. I have the knowledge and insight necessary to teach clarinet students of any level.

About Reid
Hello! I am a former music performance student of SHSU. I have played clarinet for 10 years, and piano for 8. After receiving a 2-year education at SHSU, I transferred to UTD in Richardson to pursue a pre-medical degree. During my time at SHSU, I earned top musical honors, including a victory in a concerto competition between all of the incoming musicians to the school of music. I additionally made the TMEA 6A all-state band two years in a row while in high school. As someone who has recently gone through studentship and emerged successfully, I believe I have fresh insight as to how your current student may do the same. Not only do I have the knowledge and insight to teach students of any level, but I also know exactly what habits and methods it takes. So much of my heart is rooted in music, and I would love to help your student begin and
enrich their musical journey. As an older brother to three younger sisters, I have always had an affinity for collaborating with the youth, be it as a brother or as a teacher. I hope to be in contact with you soon!
