Music informs how we think about, perceive and connect with the world.
To master an instrument brings us a sense of ability and fullness that few other things in life truly can. I teach music so I can pass this gift onto eager learners of all ages.
CLARINET + PIANO LESSONS
My Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy is simple: to be a nurturing force for developing musicians that helps grow their fundamental music skills and their expression and creativity through music.
STUDENT Learning Outcomes
I take the time to understand each of my clarinet and piano students’ unique needs and goals to create a customized teaching plan that will support, yet challenge, their musical progress.
Here are the learning outcomes you can expect from lessons with me:
Reach your musical goals - I help students define goals that are important to them and feel achievable. This keeps them motivated and excited about their musical instruction.
Manage frustrations that arise - By breaking down the learning process into manageable pieces, students gain an understanding of, and build confidence in, their performance ability.
For children, learn responsibility and time management - Young students learn how to set, manage and fulfill small goals from week to week.
Be an active part of a community - How to engage with other musicians and support and learn from one another.
Musical instruction is a wonderful investment in your or your child’s lifelong well-being and personal growth.
I offer 30 and 60 minute lessons for both clarinet and piano, beginning at $30 per half hour. If you opt to pay for the whole semester upfront, you will get one free lesson.

Proper ensemble skills - Etiquette and setting group expectations

Communication - Conducting rehearsals and giving feedback to colleagues
Physical comfort - Using appropriate movement to interact with the music and your colleagues
