Clarinet has been my main instrument since I was in 6th grade. I took private lessons in middle school all the way through college as a music major. I can work with students just getting started or more advanced students who need help with band music or solos.

Chelsea has been a great help for my son. He was having difficulty in class and was not happy to play it. He developed interest in this instrument after having these additional personal classes.

Although I am primarily a saxophonist, clarinet is a secondary instrument that most saxophonists also have to know how to play. As a performer it is an absolute necessity that I be able to double on the clarinet and be just as proficient.

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are ...

This "teacher" doesn't know anything about music, let alone playing the trumpet, or any instrument. Complete HACK with zero skills who shouldn't even be charging $15 an hour!!! Also, she was extremely rude in all correspondence with me. I'm beyond thankful that I didn't have to smell her likely putrid, unwashed, unkempt stench through the webcam or in person. Stay FAR away.

I started playing clarinet in 1998 and continued through college. I took private lessons under Dr. Christopher Gibson at Northwest Missouri State University. I have a Bachelor of Education in Instrumental Music from that university as well.

I've known Dana for 7 years. She's very passionate about playing piano and her other instruments. She loves teaching other students one-on-one. She has been teaching off and on for five years and been successful. She's taught me how to play and even read music.

Dana is a skilled pianist with a great personality. She is kind, patient, and creative. What makes her a good teacher, in addition to her extensive study of the piano, is her ability to make music fun!

Why TakeLessons?

Clarinet Lessons

The clarinet is a popular woodwind instrument found in classical music, orchestras, concert wind bands and many big band jazz groups. The best way to learn how to play is to take clarinet lessons. There are many varieties of the clarinet, and one effective way of selecting your clarinet is to first know the differences between the four different types: soprano clarinet, alto clarinet and bass clarinet. From here, you can choose what kind you would want to play and devote your time to studying with an instructor who can help you achieve success. If you are a beginner, clarinet teachers will focus on the fundamentals of proper breathing, tonal quality, timing as well as various techniques used in playing clarinet. They will also teach you how to read clarinet music and help you decide what style of playing will best suit you. If you are an advanced player then music theory may be incorporated in the study to help you progress and become a more talented clarinet player. Having to study an instrument is always more enjoyable when you are learning in a comfortable environment. To help ensure this type of environment all of our clarinet coaches are professional and good-natured so you can feel comfortable placing your confidence and trust in their hands. So sign up for clarinet lessons in your area today!
