Do You Teach Adults?
Yes; I teach adults of all abilities, from beginners to veteran players. It is never too late to start. All it takes is a beginner's mindset and patience.
I have experience in helping adults who might already be expert players, but rather might need coaching in order to adapt to new life circumstances after extended breaks in playing, injuries, or even neurological issues, or extended illness. I can work as a partner to find simple solutions to make playing easier and reduce potential injuries and create new and rewarding creative experiences for you regardless of the obstacle.
How long are lessons?
There are three lesson length options:
Lesson length is determined by consultation with the instructor.
How Much Do Lessons Cost?
Tuition is due at the first lesson of the month for that lesson and the rest of the month.
Thirty minute lessons: $140.00

Sixty-minute lessons: $240.00
What is a Good Age to Start Clarinet Lessons for my Child?
Generally speaking, nine years old, or the third grade.
If your child is in Kindergarten through second grade, I would recommend at least one or two years of piano to prepare them for starting clarinet at an earlier age.
The summer after third grade can be a wonderful time to start clarinet lessons.
NEW IN 2019-2020: Sunday Afternoon Music
Chamber Music/Duo Class/Masterclass: I offer chamber music and duo class once a month pro bono.
Master classes are also available, as part of the lesson package.
Sign-ups will be posted in the studio!
What is your reschedule policy?
Any changes in schedule must be made before the beginning of the week: the deadline for rescheduling is Sunday night at midnight for the upcoming week. No mid-week rescheduling will be considered.
What is your cancellation policy?
Tuition will be adjusted for vacation/other variables, with advance notice.
I do my best to makeup lessons for illness or emergency; I ask for 24 hours notice cancellation.
