             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

I consider myself a laid back teacher who still has solid expectations. I understand that each student's feasible time commitment may be different and I would like to honor that. With that said, I expect my students to put time into their music, because that is the only way to make progress and to maximize their ultimate enjoyment of playing an instrument. I will set realistic weekly goals for each student, trying to balance their interests with my evaluation of what they need to work on to make the most progress.

For beginning students, I like to focus for the first few weeks on playing scales and songs without written music, and I continue to incorporate learning by at any level.  When I begin using written music I use the Accent on Achievement method (I am also comfortable with other standard elementary methods and would be happy to use whatever method a student's band director is using), which is a good place to start whether or not the student already reads music.  For adult students who are just beginning, I recommend the Universal Method, which covers absolutely everything.  Once the student has worked through the fundamentals we can begin introducing solo repertoire in whatever style the student is most excited about.

Of course, every student is different, and an integral part of my philosophy involves getting to know each student so that I may learn their creative preferences, strengths, and weaknessness. I do not shy away from books, I do indeed enjoy working out of the Hal Leonard collection because I appreciate the step by step structure. This may apply less to guitar, however, if the student's primary ambitions are to learn songs by Green Day or The Beatles, etc. Jazz music has its own rather extensive work load, which differers greatly from classical and rock, but I hope very much to put my qualification in this realm to good use very soon. Typically, I like to break the lesson up with a healthy balance of techique (scales, chords, etc), interpretation (etudes, pieces), and creativity (free play, improvisation, composition, etc.)

I customize my teaching to the individual student in order to maximize growth and student engagement.  I have experience teaching beginning students using the following method books: Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements 2000, Accent on Achievement, and Rubank.  Most often, I recommend a beginning private student to use the Rubank method book 1 for their initial lessons.  For more advanced students, I encourage studying solo works and fundamentals that pertain to auditions for honors/community ensembles and district and state level auditions such as the MMEA District and All-State auditions.  I have also written my own method book for advanced trombone students called "The All-State Trombonist - Fundamental Practice Exercises for the Trombone Performing Artist".  Additionally, for advanced trombonists I recommend and teach using the following methods: "Melodious Etudes" by Rochut, "Sixty Selected Studies" by Kopprasch, "Arbans's Famous Method" by Arban, "Studies in Clefs" by Blazhevich, and "Lip Slurs" by Edwards.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
