Featured Dorchester 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.

Liz T

Instruments:

Liz started playing the flute at the age of six. At a very early age she started formal musical training in her native home town of San Juan Puerto Rico and quickly developed great appreciation for music and arts. She was accepted in an arts specialized school where she was constantly exposed to private lessons, large ensembles and chamber music. Upon finishing this program, she was accepted in the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in flute performance. In 2005 she was awarded 3rd prize of the concerto competition as well as a substitute position with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra where she had the opportunity to play many of the greatest orchestral masterpieces under world-renowned conductors. Shortly after graduating she moved to the city of Cincinnati OH, where she studied privately with the principal flute of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Randolph Bowman. Liz has participated in master classes with Amy Porter, Jim Walker, Lisa Ruoho, Paul Edmund Davies, Amy Likar, Keith Underwood, Carol Winsenc and Mary Karen Clardy. In 2009, she was accepted in the Master of Music, performance division, at the Boston University’s College of Fine Arts under the tutelage of flutist Linda Toote. In the summer of 2011, she participated in Trevor Wye’s master class “Preparing for Employment” where she had an opportunity to work extensively with this world-class flutist. Now a graduate she is actively engaged as a freelancer and private flute instructor in the New England area. 

Gregory B

Instruments:

I'm a passionate musician, with a deep knowledge of many styles of music. I am equally motivated to help my students find success on the saxophone or clarinet, whatever their goals are. I have had the great fortune to play music on 4 continents, and recently played my first show (of hopefully more!) at the House of Blues in Boston, to a sold-out crowd. I have taken hundreds of lessons over the years from masters such as Dave Liebman, Gary Smulyan, and Lynn Klock. Not only do I have a wide span of knowledge, but a willingness to pass on this knowledge and help students reach their individual goals- no two students have the same goals, and I respect that!

Gordon B

Instruments:

I'm passionate about music. I've written, conducted, and performed music as a multi-instrumentalist. I've also taught privately (on a number of concert band instruments) and written on the subject.

Phillip G

Instruments:

I was studying Electrical Engineering for two years at Tufts University before I decided to take a leap and follow my passion of music.  It has been an incredible journey ever since!  I have had the oppurtunity to play a wide variety of musical styles including rock jam-band, folk trio, jazz ensembles, latin jazz, chamber music, solo, duo, avante-garde, electronic, and many more.  No matter what the situation, I always love to play, create, and share music with others. Now, I want to help students find that same joy and connect with the music they love, or perhaps even develope the skills to create their own.

More Information About Clarinet Lessons

Young students are best-suited for a plastic student model clarinet. Plastic is durable, easy to care for, and can be taken outside for marching band. Models made from wood, offered by companies like Yamaha and Buffett, are typically recommended by conductors of school wind ensembles and orchestras for indoor concert use.
In home clarinet lessons offer a convenient option for learning to play the instrument for most students. The lessons will be structured the same way as in-studio lessons and will generally be once a week.
Our teachers create a custom lesson and technique plan for each student. For the most part, lessons will focus around learning how to hold and care for the instrument, how to prepare it for playing, how to read music, sight read, and basic musicianship skills. Students will also focus on mouth position and breath support to play the instrument.
Many adult students choose to take the clarinet, even with no previous experience. Clarinet can be a wonderful instrument to learn for the first time and a lot of progress can be made as long as the student is practicing! Clarinet can be a very satisfying instrument to learn as an adult because it takes a lot of lung capacity and skill to play clarinet.
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.
