Clarinet and piano lessons provided by Chapman University alum in music performance around Contra Costa County

Methodology

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 can teach in 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes and lessons can take place at my home or at the student's home. Currently, I also work as a clarinet coach for Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, CA.

Background

At my time in college, I was coaching two beginning students on the clarinet. One was a 5th grader, and the other was a 7th grader. I've also helped the occasional college student in practicing the required music for my college's wind symphony. Currently, I volunteer at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, CA as a clarinet coach. I work with middle school students individually, as a group, and I also lead the bands occasionally.
