Some people might fare better with this instructor. More chatting than instructing. Usually telling stories trying to sell himself and talk about how great he is. Delusional ideas about your relationship. Accusatory. Takes things personally. Burns bridges. Claims to be a vocal therapist but doesn't do any vocal therapy. Can provide bad advice and medical information.
Jim
This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.

I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

Private Clarinet Teacher

Clarinet:
A musical instrument family belonging to the group known as the woodwind instruments. It has a single-reed mouthpiece, a straight cylindrical tube with an almost cylindrical bore, and a flared bell. A person who plays a clarinet is called a clarinetist. It is a great instrument for orchestras, jazz, blues or even popular music.
Starting with the basics we will learn breathing and fingering techniques and how to read music. It won't be long before you are playing songs. As the student progresses theory and soloing will be taught if interested.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Private Clarinet Teacher

Beginning my studies on clarinet, I understand the challenges which the instrument presents. I continue to perform the clarinet in big band and in the pit orchestra for musicals. Beginner students will learn basic foundation skills (such as embouchure, air, posture, hand position, tonguing techniques, and reed maintenance) in a fun environment where the student's needs come first. Intermediate students can expect to learn more demanding techniques (such as double tonguing, circular breathing, whole tone and octatonic scales) and selections from the clarinet repertoire in an encouraging but challenging environment.

I have taught beginning clarinet in my band programs for 6 years now. I have a proven method that will work for any absolute beginner at any age. We will talk about tone production, reading music, reeds, and many other fundamental skills needed to get you off the ground playing the clarinet. After the 1st year of lessons, I would recommend you move to a teacher who plays primarily on the clarinet.

We will use one of the beginner books depending on your level of ability. I want to use scales and exercises to make sure you are getting a good foundation as a clarinet player. We may play duets to help you increase your independence. I want to see you working on a solo also to be performed at recital.

Dan was wonderful with my son. Very nice experience. Thank you.
Elly
Mr. A. has a talent for teaching that makes it a privilege to be one of his students. Our son has been thoroughly enjoying the time under his tutelage, and continues to do so via video while in-house is not an option. The trumpet lessons have included trumpet technique, musical notation and reading, ear training, trumpet hygiene, and instrument care.
Mr. A. is a respectful, punctual, and precise teacher who inspires students to reach their potential.

"Damien is a fantastic teacher! Our daughter will be a high school sophomore when school starts this month. She has been taking clarinet lessons from him for the last two years. Damien gives lessons at her school, but is also flexible enough to come to our home when school is out, or if we need to squeeze in a weekend lesson. He is a talented musician, and as a teacher, Damien is encouraging, thorough, and challenging, in a low-key manner. He wants his students to play with confidence. He is a person of integrity, and respectful to his students--she looks forward to her lessons. Damien has made excellent solo selections for her. With his teaching and guidance, our daughter did very well at the All Region competitions in her 8th and 9th grade years. Lastly, Damien is a good communicator, which is greatly appreciated."

"Elia was my clarinet teacher for a year in Montreal. I have to say, I miss her since she moved back to NYC.
She has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher.
She's been really helping me shape my music and my musicality with technique work and working on pieces that I really enjoy.
She is very supportive, she doesn't make you feel bad about your mistake and really help you to correct them.

Elia is a wonderful and talented instructor and i can only highly recommend her."

"Carter has been instrumental in my son's growth and development as a musician and clarinetist. He has worked with my son over six years and has displayed patience, exceptional teaching ability and coaching, and clear talent as a musician. Due to Carter's support and teaching over the years, my son has realized tremendous success. He has been First Chair in his Wind Ensemble group at school, a member of the Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble, and a member of the California All-State Music Ensemble. I strongly believe that, without Carter, these accomplishments would have not been possible!"

She keeps lessons fun so that the children enjoy coming back each week and finds ways to keep them motivated when they feel challenged. :D"
