Featured Lombard Clarinet Teachers

Robert S

Instruments:

I have been teaching guitar, electric bass, and woodwinds for over 30 years.  I have a Bachelor of Arts from Northeastern Illinois University.  I have performed all over the Chicago area in a variety of Rock, Americana, Country, Folk, Blues, and Celtic ensembles.  I write original songs and compose music for dance and film.

Caitlin R

Instruments:

Caitlin started playing clarinet when she was in 5th grade and began taking private lessons in 6th grade. In 2008 Caitlin graduated from the DePaul University School of Music in Chicago with a bachelor's degree in clarinet performance "summa cum laude"; while there she studied with Julie DeRoche and other members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. 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.

Greg Z

Instruments:

Teaches private students of all ages "The 2 best parts of teaching music are the journey and the performance. It's one of the best feelings in the world to conduct a great band at a performance and then think back to all the work that everyone put into get to that point. That journey is filled with successes and struggles that are constantly being worked out in order to reach our goals. There is never a dull day in the band world."

Jennifer S

Instruments:

Music has always been a part of my life in one way or another and I am someone who can pass on a positive experience to people of any age.  I think positive reinforcement is so crucial for a student’s progress.  Some of the highlights of my musical career, during college and after, have been my travel experiences with choirs.  I traveled around the United States and to Canada with a women’s choir early in my career.  I also traveled to the Far East (Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and the Philippines) early on, with the same choir.  More recently, I traveled to China as a choir member and a soloist, while participating in a cultural exchange between the College of Lake County and X’ian University. 

David W

Instruments:

I am a dedicated and patient instructor with many years teaching experience in many different settings. For the past ten years I was professor of clarinet and music technology at Mansfield University in rural northern Pennsylvania. I have recently returned to my hometown of Chicago for family reasons and I'm looking forward to teaching private students again. I completed my doctorate in clarinet perfomance at the University of Arizona, working with Jerry Kirkbride (Dorian Wind Quintet), in 2004. I have performed as a soloist, chamber musician, and with orchestras throughout the United States.

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.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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.
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.
