Bachelor Degree: Brooklyn College
I am a passionate and motivated teacher who would love to share her love of the clarinet. I recently graduated with a degree in clarinet performance and will be getting ready to continue my studies this year. All the greatest experiences of my life have been through music and I hope to share that with you! I have experience in chamber music, orchestral works, fundamentals of music, and solo works for the clarinet. I have played all over NYC and am always looking for opportunities to expand my experiences.
I’ve been teaching since college and in my home for about 6 years. I’ve taught generally beginners but am always looking to expand and share my knowledge. I encourage my students to be free thinking and self-motivated, but it is my job to guide you in the process. Music is universal, but we all have our own ways of interpretations the pieces we are working on. Consistency is key, but it’s my job help set good practice habits that make you want to continue and have fun along the way! I’ve taught kids of all backgrounds and just love sharing my knowledge that I have gained from teachers before me
Depending on your experience, I will base it on that. There are many things we can learn without books and then as you progress we can introduce method books and eventually repertoire. I believe in slowing down to speed up, which means really taking the time to learn fundamentals before going beyond that. Once you master that, is when you can really start having fun with repertoire! No matter what ability level is, from student to professional, scales are always useful! We can always build off of the things we learn when we first start playing.
It is really based on your own goals. We will access where you are at and where you want to go. I have learned that one size does not fit all and I want you to learn and feel inspired, and we will do that based on your wants and needs. I will set realistic goals, and encourage you to accomplish it and continue want to hopefully make you want to progress even more! We all have our own pace, and it’s important that we find out what that is, and utilize it to your best advantage. I will tailor your lessons to meet your goals with gentle encouragement along the way.
