To the memory of my good friend and clarinetist Kalman Bloch

Welcome to my Clarinet Studio Page

Thank you for your interest in clarinet lessons!
FAQ

1)  "I am a doubler (sax/clarinet/flute) and would like to learn more about how to control my clarinet tone. Basically the tone I have now is very dull and flat or a very reedy bright tone. Can you help me develop a good clarinet tone?"

Yes! I diagnose various causes of bad clarinet tone and give you the tools to create whatever sound you like. I believe in being able to produce the sound you want  with the equipment you own. My last resort is to change your equipment setup.

2)  " I do not have much money. Can we work out a special payment plan?"

As a person who grew up without much money, I am more than happy to work something out. To me, the importance of teaching music to a younger generation far outweighs the monetary compensation. If you have a concern, lets talk it out.  

3) "I am a high school student who doesn't know what pieces to play for my upcoming college audition. Where can I go for help training for my audition?"

Considering that I've taken my fair share of auditions, I can teach you the difference between someone who tries and someone who wins! I take every student and help them create a special training schedule to deal with any audition.
