At DePaul she also played in the Wind Symphony (Band), Chamber Orchestra, and was in several chamber ensembles including a Clarinet Quartet, Clarinet Trio, Woodwind Quintet, and Violin/Clarinet/Piano Trio. Growing up, Caitlin was a member of the McHenry County Youth Orchestra and the Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra and has also been in marching band, pep band, and pit orchestra and participated in solo/ensemble contests and IMEA. From July 2008 to August 2010 Caitlin tested clarinets at Conn-Selmer, Inc. where she utilized performance and repair skills to improve upon both student and professional clarinet design and quality. Caitlin lives in Norridge, Illinois and typically teach lessons in her home which is walking distance from Ridgewood High School.

From then until now I have become one of the top/first call saxophonist/woodwind musicians in the city of Chicago and have performed all over the world with musical lumaries such as Aretha Franklin, The OJays, Brian McKnight, Diana Ross, Al Jarreau, The Temps and dozens of others!

Recently returned from Japan, I served as Co-Principal Clarinetist of the Hyogo Performing Arts Center Orchestra since 2011. With 3 nationwide tours, I performed all over Japan, appearing regularly on the nationally televised program "Daimei no Nai Ongakukai" televised nationally. In 2010 I earned my Master of Music degree at the University of Southern California, studying with master teacher Yehuda Gilad. Orginally from Orland Park, I studied with my childhood idols in the Chicago Symphony. First with Larry Combs (former Principal Clarinet 1975-2007) at DePaul University (BM 2007). Later, I was accepted into the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, the training orchestra of the Chicago Symphony. There I had the chance to work closely with John Bruce Yeh (Assistant Principal Clarinet 1979-present) and a variety of conductors who worked with the Chicago Symphony.

Hey there! I'm Derek Brown, and I've been teaching music lessons for over 10 years.  I specialize in saxophone, jazz, and music theory, as well as flute and clarinet. I graduated with a Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music in 2008, and a Bachelors degree in Classical and Jazz Saxophone performance at Hope College (in Holland, MI) in 2006. I was the director of jazz studies for six years at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, and recently moved to Chicago to perform and teach lessons full time.

More Information About Clarinet Lessons

We suggest that beginner students rent their instrument to start out. Clarinets come in either wood or plastic varieties, but the wood variety will be more durable and last longer. All clarinets come with a case, bell, lower joint, upper joint, barrel, and the mouthpiece. You would also have to purchase reeds or a reed making kit, as this is a neccesary item for this instrument.
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.
Taking clarinet lessons is a great way for a child to get started learning music. The clarinet is very portable, so as long as you have a nice sturdy case, it can be transported to and from school and rehearsals with ease. Many students who are studying in band or wind ensemble in their school program, will also wish to take private lessons to enhance their playing. In lessons students will learn how to read music, rhythms, and the technique of playing 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.
We suggest starting clarinet lessons at age 7 or 8. A student should be able to hold the instrument correctly, so their fingers must be large enough to do this. Playing clarinet also requires significant lung capacity, which can be difficult for a younger child.
