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.

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.

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

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

Hi! My name is Carrie and I have been in love with the clarinet since I first heard it at 8 years old. I have been teaching privately for almost 30 years and have held an online studio for over 10 years, teaching across many states and advancing students to their next levels of performance. I teach because it's incredibly exciting watching students reach their individual goals, whether it's learning their band/orchestra music well or preparing for the next college audition. I work on learning about you and your personality so that I may better customize the lessons with etudes and solos that "fit" you. There's never just one path to get to the end goal, and it's important to enjoy the journey as well! I'd love to be a part of your journey, so let's get started!

"Don't learn for the moment, learn for the lifetime".

​Carrie’s teaching was transformational for my musical growth. I am primarily an oboist, and after playing around on clarinet for a while I decided I wanted to study it more seriously. Carrie’s was the first name in my mind. I knew of her playing skills already from being at UofL at the same time and there was no one else I wanted to learn from. I am so glad I sought her out, as she provided me with a rock-solid foundation for further clarinet study. Though I was only able to study with her for a few months, she lead me to grow musically far more than I thought possible.

​Carrie’s teaching style is very direct yet warm and friendly. I was never afraid to make a mistake, and I knew that each mistake I made would be an opportunity for her to help me improve. She always made sure that any questions I had were thoroughly answered, and I always felt comfortable sharing things I was unsure of or that I knew I needed to be better at. She is a very charismatic person and effortlessly builds rapport with students. Because of this, I was always very comfortable with her critique of my playing. She was very practical in ensuring that all the fundamentals were well understood, and constantly connected back to them as I progressed.

​I am pursuing my teaching certificate in music education now and so much of what I learned with Carrie I use with my clarinet students and all my students generally. She is simply a fantastic teacher, clarinetist, and person.

Jason was great, and exactly what I was hoping for. I am looking forward to working with him for the rest of our time together.

My son had his first lesson today and has already learned so many things! When the lesson ended, he smiled and told me it was so much fun and the teacher was nice. My son is a beginner at clarinet and usually has a hard time with learning new things, but he was able to understand Jason very well.
Jason is friendly, focused, patient, knowledgeable, confident, professional, and cool. He is organized and communicated clearly what we need to work on and what is the upcoming plan. Jason is awesome and exceeded my expectations. My son is really looking forward to his next lesson!

"I’ve played clarinet for over 30 years, and was a clarinet major in college. I started studying with Mr. Rappaport after I was out of college for several years and had moved to Atlanta, where Mr. Rappaport was playing in the Atlanta Symphony. I found him to be the best teacher I had ever studied with. His ability to help me understand the musical phrase, no matter what style of music I was working on, was amazing. I studied standard clarinet etudes, orchestral literature, and clarinet solo repertoire with Mr. Rappaport. He had the same mild, yet persistent approach with me on everything we worked on – always working to get me to play it to the best of my ability.
One thing I had always feared having to play some day was the opening solo to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. A former teacher had been unable to help me with it. So, when a band I was playing with scheduled the piece and told me to get ready to play the solo, I was traumatized and contacted Mr. Rappaport for help. He worked with me and not only got me playing the opening glissando, but helped me to have a better understanding of the other jazzy spots in the piece. So now I can say I’ve performed that piece about 20 times, and the fear is gone! Thanks, Mr. Rappaport!
Regardless of your level of playing, I think you will find Mr. Rappaport to be an outstanding teacher!"
