Federal Way, WA

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

About Diane
I continue to learn and improve my teaching by attending workshops, conferences, and be involved in music teacher groups. These are both in person, social media, and podcasts. I believe it is important to play your instrument if you teach it. My BM degree from UW-Stevens Point taught me how music is important in so many parts of life. My family of 6, includes 3 sons and 1 daughter. My youngest is a sophomore at Thomas Jefferson.

I ask that you have a well maintained instrument before signing up for lessons. ie. an acoustic piano or keyboard that has minimum 76 keys, 88 is PREFERABLE, keys need to be weighted/touch sensitive. You can ask me where are apropriate places to rent or buy a piano.

I have some supplies, materials, access to music website and books which you would then reimburse me. It is non-refundable, You may g
et lesson books from and reimburse me for costs, no tax.

About William R.

Poulsbo, WA

View Full Profile

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 can, and would like, to help you.

I played clarinet in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for 40 years, retiring in August of 2015. As a member of the ASO, I've toured Europe, made Grammy award winning recordings, and played in Carnegie Hall many times. I have a Bachelor of Music degree (with Distinction) from Indiana University's respected School of Music. I have played a lot of chamber music as well, both in the United States, and touring Spain with the Atlanta Virtuosi. I have been Adjunct Instructor of clarinet at Georgia State Univ
ersity, and at Georgia Institute of Technology.

My special strengths as a teacher include being able to help a student develop a beautiful sound, and solve technical problems including finger technique and articulation. In addition I am good at helping people discover the musical meaning behind the notes. I can help you find your musical path. I am happy to help less advanced players with all fundamentals, which are the foundation we all need, regardless of our level. I am knowledgeable, kind, and able to set standards for you as needed.

Please contact me with any questions you may have about my teaching.

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.

· Clarinet · In studio
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 April 18, 2018
· Clarinet · In studio
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.

Even though these are clarinet lessons you'll be taking, I would be using the clarinet as a tool to bring you into the beautiful world of music. That means that other than technical things such as sound and fingerings, we'd be talking about what makes the music that you're playing great and how to best convey it in your playing. Come study with a professional performing clarinetist with extensive teaching experience in all ages and levels. Whatever music style you're into (classical/jazz/klezmer...), I'd be happy to focus on.

About Moran
Hi! I'm a Juilliard graduate clarinetist (BM, MM, AD), currently on the Juilliard Pre College Division faculty [chamber music] as well as at Vassar College (teaching clarinet). I perform extensively as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. Although I'm mostly classically trained, I play jazz and klezmer as well.

I look forward to meeting you!
