The clarinet has many uses in band, jazz, or orchestra. Knowing what to expect is part of your professional and poised life in music.

Private Clarinet Teacher

I love to teach students of any level from beginner to advanced. If you are a beginner, in the first few lessons you will learn how to put the clarinet together, how to put the reed on the mouthpiece, and be able to play a simple melody. I like to use the Klose Method book, and simple solos including music from film scores like Star Wars. Advanced players can work on clarinet technique and repertoire including orchestral excerpts and major solo literature. I look forward to meeting you!

About William

I am a skilled clarinetist who has had great training, and the professional career to back it up, but I am also a kind, supportive teacher who wants to work with a student in the way they need to be worked with. Whether your ambitions are modest, you want a career in music, or somewhere in between

I studied clarinet with William Rappaport when I was a graduate
student in music education at Georgia State University. He may be the
most deeply musical person I have ever known. My sense was that,
though he was a performer of the absolute highest caliber, he was
equally passionate about teaching.
When I initially contacted Bill to schedule lessons, I explained that
I was visually impaired. I wanted to share this information with him
upfront in the event that he had questions or concerns about teaching
me. I remember him saying clearly, “I am aware of the possibilities.”
That was all I needed to hear to feel comfortable entering his studio.
Bill encouraged me to take on any challenge in the clarinet
literature that interested me. He used every possible metaphor he
could think of to communicate ideas that were more easily accessed if
you could simply look at the printed page. He was always warm and
friendly, but focused, never wasting one second of our time together.
Following my work with Bill, I attended The University of Michigan
where, though I was a music education doctoral student, I was
instantly welcomed into one of the clarinet studios. Bill’s creative
work with me played an enormous role in making that happen. Now, I am
a community college professor, teaching a variety of classes including
a studio class for instrumental music students. I often find myself
using the same examples Bill employed with me to help my current
students. I am profoundly grateful for his unyielding commitment to my
growth when I was a student of his.

I’ve played clarinet for over 30 years, and was a clarinet major in college. I started studying with Mr. Rappaport after I was out of college for several years and had moved to Atlanta, where Mr. Rappaport was playing in the Atlanta Symphony. I found him to be the best teacher I had ever studied with. His ability to help me understand the musical phrase, no matter what style of music I was working on, was amazing. I studied standard clarinet etudes, orchestral literature, and clarinet solo repertoire with Mr. Rappaport. He had the same mild, yet persistent approach with me on everything we worked on – always working to get me to play it to the best of my ability.
One thing I had always feared having to play some day was the opening solo to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. A former teacher had been unable to help me with it. So, when a band I was playing with scheduled the piece and told me to get ready to play the solo, I was traumatized and contacted Mr. Rappaport for help. He worked with me and not only got me playing the opening glissando, but helped me to have a better understanding of the other jazzy spots in the piece. So now I can say I’ve performed that piece about 20 times, and the fear is gone! Thanks, Mr. Rappaport!
Regardless of your level of playing, I think you will find Mr. Rappaport to be an outstanding teacher!
Kim
Mr. Rappaport was my clarinet professor and mentor in college and has continued to be an inspiration to me both as a teacher and as one of the finest clarinetist I know, both in the classical realm and in the jazz and swing styles.

Anyone who has ever heard me play has always complimented me on my clarinet tone. I can honestly say that my clarinet tone is the direct result of Mr. Rappaport's methods and his gentle but very stringent guidelines. If you are looking for someone to take you or your child to the highest standard of musicianship, look no further. I highly recommend lessons with Mr. Rappaport. Kim C.

Anyone who can teach me the intricacies of the clarinet deserves a prize. Tyreese qualifies. Tyreese is patient, detailed, and of course, very knowledgeable. He's just very good at teaching music and I made progress that frankly surprised me. Of course I recommend him. I'm glad I had the opportunity to study clarinet with Tyreese.

Tyreese is super patient and thoughtful in his instruction and fine-tuning. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor after a 30 year hiatus from an instrument that is fast becoming so dear to me once more!

I really love catering lessons in a unique and diverse way to every individual student because every player has a different style and process for learning. My favorite part of teaching is trying to deliver a "light bulb" moment to a students, or the moment when they finally understand a concept and enjoy doing so.

"Josh has been a fantastic Instructor for my middle school age son. He worked closely with him on several pieces that were required to audition at two summer music camps helping him to move from near last position the year before to the top of the class. His improvements were formally recognized with an award at the end of 7th grade and I think Josh was a large part of that improvement. We were saddened to hear that Josh would be leaving the Denver area but wish him the best of success in his new ventures. Josh is an excellent instructor and we would certainly work with him again in the future."

"This is my first formal lesson(s) with a saxophone coach ever in life. Having actually journeying through this time I find comfort with coach mike's teaching techniques. He is very patient with any and all questions as I practice the routines. He is beyond encouraging with helping me to develop my sound offering practical ways to not only maintain but improve as well. As coach Mike guides me through warm-ups, and understanding how to coordinate my muscles it humbles and stir's up a hunger inside of me to keep at it. Although, I am a beginner coach Mike tackles those jitters and paves a path where i can play confidently. I find my coach very knowledgeable with his information, and sincere with his teaching as he pours out his musical wisdom. My coach is all around awesome and I have no doubt that with his guidance, and myself applying the hardwork this time next year I will be beyond where I started."
