Featured Allston Clarinet Teachers

Danielle O

Instruments:

Danielle is an active orchestral player in Boston, New Hampshire and New York, playing with such orchestras as the Boston Ballet Orchestra, the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of Indian Hill, Lexington Symphony Orchestra, Cape Ann Symphony and Nashua Symphony.  She has worked with many prestigious conductors, including James Levine, Ludovic Morlot, David Boyd, Jonathan McPhee, Bruce Hangen, Mischa Santora, and Benjamin Zander. Originally from the small town of Barryville, NY, Danielle's orchestral career has taken her throughout the U.S. and abroad.  She has played in Boston's Symphony Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall and Cleveland's Blossom Music Center.  She began her piano studies at the age of 9 in her hometown of Barryville, NY. Taking up the clarinet at age ten and the bassoon one year later, the precocious young musician advanced very quickly. By the age of twelve, she was studying with former Russian concert pianist Sergei Arzoumanov, who led her through the rigorous demands of European classical training. Danielle also studied for a brief time with Morris Borrenstein, a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music in New York. Daniele remains an active orchestral player in the Boston area, and a dedicated teacher of more than thirty piano and clarinet students.

Instruments:

When I was in middle school I developed a strong passion for music performance and teaching. I went to a performing arts high school called The Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach Florida where I excelled in perforance on clarinet and saxophone. Knowing that I wanted to major in music the performing arts high school helped me very much. I attended The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA, The Boston Conservatory in Boston, MA, and Boston University in Boston, MA. I have been teaching clarinet and saxophone for eleven years and I love it.

Instruments:

             My goal the last few years has been learning and perfecting the technique and different styles of the clarinet. I've worked and studied with some of the best clarinetist in the world and feel I have a great idea of what it takes, and have a great love for what I'm doing. I am well versed in many styles of playing from jazz, to romantic, to pop, even klezmer having studied with Frank London from the Klezmatics. I've done quite a bit of teaching both privately, and in a group classroom format. I am constantly seeking to spread my love of the clarinet and the many different genres it can be used both through my playing, and through my teaching. For my visit my website. mfclarinet.webs.com

Sarah H

Instruments:

I am a passionate and patient instructor who loves to help students find joy in making music. I believe that developing a methodical way of practicing and thinking about music reading, tone production, and creating rhythm is the key to unlocking the ability of students to enjoy the music they produce. In 2008 I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. During my ungraduate years I studied classical saxophone with Dale Underwood and was selected as a soloist with the university's concert band on two occassions. I was also a member of the school's jazz ensembles and began to study improvisation. Between 2008 and 2013 I taught classes and lessons, mostly classical in nature, but also played regularly in jazz ensembles around Washington DC. I honed my improvisation skills through attending Barry Harris' Jazz Workshop in NY and recieving lessons from the great Lee Konitz. I've had the opportunity to play with many formidable members of the jazz community, both old and young, and have performed at many venues. You can view my website for the particulars, along with samples of my jazz improvisation and free improvisation.

Laura R

Instruments:

Learning to play a musical instrument well is an act of mind, body, and soul.  The mind becomes strong and powerful.  The body learns how to do what the mind tells it to.  And, the soul is expressed with the tools you have learned.   From the first time I knew I wanted to play music, I have had nothing but enthusiasm for learning how to express myself through art.  I have not only grown to play what I want to play, but I have grown as a person.  I have learned self-discipline, the glory of success, and the joy of doing what I love.  BUT, the most gratifying aspect of music is sharing it with others through performance and teaching.

More Information About Clarinet Lessons

Clarinets come in either plastic or wood varieties. A wooden clarinet will be more durable and will also produce a more professional sound. Clarinets come in all sizes and price ranges, so it is important to keep your budget in mind when visiting a local music store. Many students will choose to rent the instrument monthly at first instead of committing to buying the instrument. Clarinets typically come with the bell, the lower joint, the upper joint, the barrel, and the mouthpiece.
Clarinet lessons in home are a convenient way to learn an instrument. In home lessons are structured the same way as in-studio and there is no additional travel time. Our teachers generally teach students one lesson a week.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's clarinet lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes using a clarinet fingering chart, proper embouchure and tonguing technique, how to read music, how to care for your clarinet; which reed strength and mouthpiece to use, music theory, basic form and analysis, musicianship skills, or how to become a better musician, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the clarinet!
It is never too late to play an instrument. We have many adult students playing clarinet. Our teachers can work with you whether you are a beginner or advanced player. Many of our adult students notice significant progress in just a short time! It is important to practice every day between your lessons to notice the most progress.
Children generally begin to learn the clarinet at age 7 or 8. We suggest this age, because the student needs to be able to hold the instrument correctly and support its weight. The students fingers need to be the right size to play instrument, and the child needs to have enough lung capacity to support the sound of this instrument.
