Nick is a wonderful teacher. I came to him because I found that I was not able to translate what is in my head to the music, in my songwriting. I was literally hindered by my lack of knowledge and playing skills. I felt comfortable that Nick understood what I needed, and I like how he met me exactly where I was, providing lessons for me- individualized, personalized, and accessible yet enough to challenge me.

Thank you, Nick.

Amazing instructor. Patient and knowledgeable.
Kara
Nick was a patient and enthusiastic teacher. I was nervous to start music lessons in my late 30s, but he made me feel comfortable and I never felt embarrassed. He taught me the songs I was interested in learning, but snuck in music theory and the basics along the way! Highly recommend

I received my Doctorate in clarinet performance from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in May 2020. During my doctoral program, I was the teaching assistant in clarinet for three years. Previously, in May 2016, I graduated from California State University with a Master in Music in clarinet performance under the teaching of Hakan Rosengren, international soloist. Finally, prior to my doctorate studies, I studied with Boris Allakhverdyan, principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I currently teach at the French Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles. I am also a Buffet Crampon USA sponsored artist.

I have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and America and I am seeking clarinet students of every level and age.

I will focus my teaching on your needs and can help you improve technique, musicianship and sound production. I also can help you get ready for auditions and recitals.

I have a fluid teaching approach based on my REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE with an emphasis on improving technique, musicianship and a “truth is love approach” to ensure musical improvement within the first two weeks of lessons! I sincerely believe creating music should be a joyful & fulfilling experience and one that will be a positive change in someone’s life (as it has been for mine). I teach all genres of music on multiple instruments and specialize in audition preparation, real-life gig preparation and musical mastery. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations, while having a good time doing something that they love.

"Molly is the best.

I came to Molly because I had never really sung before, and had wanted to pick it up after playing different instruments. I was pretty self conscious about the whole idea of singing, and didnt really have that much faith in it. I really didnt know what to expect from singing lessons at all, but Molly really broke things down for me and made the experience positive. She wasn't judgmental or pushy in any way at all. She listened to my ideas of what I wanted to sing, and some of the artists I got inspiration from. Not only that, but she's really awesome because she likes so many different genres of music! I would think that most vocal teachers prefer more classical types of music, but Molly could totally relate to rock n roll, alternative, etc. After my first lesson with Molly I felt 100% more confident about training my voice, and everything I was looking for in voice lessons I found. Thats why I keep taking lessons from her. She set me up with many different exercises to practice by myself, and she does a really good job of breaking things down so that a person with no singing experience can understand everything. Overall, I would recommend anyone, regardless of age or music preference to go to Molly for vocal lessons.

Also, she does skype lessons which is a HUGE help for me considering I live a little far from her. (I didnt know what to expect with that either, but you'll be surprised how well it works).
