Featured Roslindale Clarinet Teachers

Lauren M

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.

Tyler B

Instruments:

Originally from Florida, I am now living and working as a saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and teacher in Boston after completing my Master's degree from the New England Conservatory. As a performer, I play with several local bands in the jazz, rock, funk, world, and soul genres. As a teacher, I want to see my students not only develop a love of music, but develop a sense of hard work, community, and curiosity through music that they can take with them everywhere. 

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!

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.

Danby C

Instruments:

I'm a native of South Korea, and have been actively performing with various chamber ensembles and orchestras across the East coast in the United States. I have appeared as a soloist with the New World Symphony Orchestra in Busan, South Korea, Busan Clarinet Choir and the TV and Radio Symphony Orchestra in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have also performed as a member of numerous ensembles in Canada, Italy, Japan and in South Korea.  I won a top prize at the Korea Clarinet Association Ensemble Competition which included a performance at the Seoul Art Center, a second prize at the National Music Competition by Busan Music Association of Education and was a winner of the school's annual concerto competition which included a performance as a soloist with Pusan National University Symphony Orchestra. I earned an award for outstanding student upon graduation from New York University where I hold a Master’s degree as a scholarship recipient.  As a member of Trio Mirabile since 2012, I was the first place winner at the American Protege International Competition of Romantic Music which included a performance at the Carnegie Hall, New York where I was awarded with the Judges' Distinction. I was also invited to the artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre.  I was also elected to a membership in the national music honor society Pi Kappa Lambda. I perform regularly as a guest solo artist with Amici String Quartet in South Korea. My upcoming concerts include Artie Shaw clarinet concerto with Doctor’s Symphonic Band and Mozart Quintet with Amici String Quartet in South Korea, 2015.  In June 2014, I joined the faculty of Boston University Tanglewood Institute where I have been an assistant for Ethan Sloane’s Clarinet Workshop since 2009 as well as performing recitals on the faculty concert series. I hold a doctor of musical arts degree from Boston University, where I have worked with Ethan Sloane as a teaching assistant and as a scholarship recipient. My former teachers include David Krakauer, Esther Lamneck, Larry Guy and Woo-Young Chung.

More Information About Clarinet Lessons

There are usually two types of clarinets available, wood and plastic. Plastic clarinets are less expensive, but a wood clarinet is certain to be more durable and last longer. A wood clarinet will also produce a warmer and more professional sound. We suggest visiting your local music store and speaking to the professionals there to find out which instrument would best suit the needs of your student, and your current budget. Once you are working with a Musika Clarinet teacher, the teacher can also provide you suggestions with the best clarinet models or the best stores to get your instrument locally. Every clarinet should come with 5 basic parts: the bell, the lower joint, the upper joint, the barrel, and the mouthpiece. Make sure to inspect the instrument and be sure it includes these things.
Taking clarinet lessons in your home offers a great way to master your skills on the instrument without ever leaving your home! Many students and parents find this very convenient as there is no additional time for travel.
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!
Many of our adult clarinet students are complete beginners, while others haven't played their instrument in over 10 years. We also have teachers who can work with more advanced students looking to take their skills in both advanced classical repertoire and/or jazz improvization to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
Our recommended starting age for clarinet is around age 7. The clarinet has many keys, so the most significant factor to keep in mind is whether or not the student's hands are large enough to facilitate playing. It is also important that the student has the developed lung capacity to play. The clarinet is also a great choice for musicians already familiar with other wind instruments.
