I truly love sharing the gift of music with my students! As a professional musician for over 20 years, I can help beginners all the way up to advanced students studying saxophone, flute, clarinet, piano, music theory, composition, arranging and improvisation. My focus is always to help my students build their skills and confidence, step-by-step.
My method is to study each student's learning strengths and weaknesses. There is not one method that works for every person. I adjust the method to match the student. I have written music books and workbooks for teaching different methods and seen much success over the years across the United States and in some other countries as well.
Overall, I love making music and I love teaching it even more. When instructing someone musically, I make sure to focus on every aspect of music, not just playing the notes and rhythms correctly. I also make it a goal that the students I teach will learn to enjoy playing music even more through fun yet productive lessons.
Personal Statement on Music Education Warren Fordham Many things about the field of music education motivate me, because being a music teacher/band director is very important to me. There are numerous reasons why music education is close to my heart. For instance, I believe performers, composers, and songwriters should share their craft.
I approach each topic with the student's needs in mind because every student is different and learns differently. I teach the basics to younger students and speak with them on their weaknesses and strengths.
I based my classes on individual needs. For beginners I start with the fundamentals of music theory (how to read music, scales, learning the concepts of playing) and then work on the basics of clarinet playing. For more advanced students, I allow them to work on pieces and help them improve on them and give them exercises and advice on how they can improve their playing.
I am a vocalist, French horn player, clarinetist, composer, and arranger. I give lessons to students of all ages in these subjects. I will aim to help you grow by helping to improve your technique. You might have a great voice or incredible ability on your instrument/composer, but you may not know the techniques that will enable it to truly flourish.
Fundamentals are important, but playing music should be fun from day one. We'll work on learning to play melodies and tunes with which the student is already familiar. I've found that once a new musician sees how simple some of their favorite songs can be, it's easy to dive into the music theory side and explain "why it works.
I have been where you have been I will be able to help with any audition music and will be able to help with solos and help you get over whatever kind of nerves you have.
My focus is the improvement of individual skills (scales, sight reading, ear training, musical expression, and knowledge of music structure).
In my lessons we go as slow or as fast as the student is needing to go.
My teaching method involves figuring out what is best for the student, weather that be singing, clapping, visualizing, or all of the above.
Hi, I am originally from Venezuela, where I grew up as a young member of the Venezuelan National System of Youth Orchestras (El Sistema). There I learned to play the clarinet and performed with various youth orchestras. I continued my musical studies while attending the highly competitive Central University of Venezuela (UCV) International Studies program.

My name is Cynthia Ley and I am a recent graduate of Chapman University. I majored in Music Performance for the Clarinet though I also am competitively trained for the piano. I can teach beginner students to high school students for private lessons which include technique work, theory studies, and learning repertoire based on each student's skill level.
I give lessons to middle schoolers and high schoolers who are in the beginner or intermediate stages of clarinet playing. I start out by seeing where you're at skill-wise and then tailor the lesson so that you will get the most out of it.

Customizing the classes, and configuring a language, understanding each student, making a correct learning base.

Music educator with over 15 years of experience providing beginner to intermediate music lessons for piano, saxophone, clarinet, and/ or voice. High energy and supportive instruction focused on technique, breath control (for wind instruments and voice), and basic music theory.
For all beginners, I start off with basics. I like to use the Rubank Beginner (or intermediate) book along with weekly scales. A well rounded musical foundation is vitally important, so I make sure to balance classical training with ear training assignments that get the student to listen critically to music they're passionate about.
For beginner's learning clarinet I will first make sure that the student is comfortable holding their instrument and knows where their keys are. From there I will work with the student to learn their instrument fingering and notes, and ensure they have good embouchure to get good sound out of their instrument.
I teach according to each students needs. I don't use just one methodology I like to incorporate many like Dalcroze, Piaget, and Orff. I give lessons to all ages of all levels. I want to make sure each student grows to their full potential and grows to love music.
I am a recent high school graduate and I would love to help you or your child begin or further their knowledge of clarinet and reading music. I go at the pace of the student and I approach the material with terms that younger musicians understand.
I have studied at the UMKC Conservatory for 3 semesters. I have taught as a woodwind technician at Branson High School for 4 summers now. Each lesson will cater to the student's needs and abilities.
I am a college junior (although due to the condition of my age from advancing early, my town's high school allows me to participate in their band organizations) I have taught an entire course on clarinet for a semester, I have made Allstate two years and am currently the drum major of my high school. I'm big on repetition, but I always make sure the next rep is better than the first.
