Students who are ready to take personal responsibility to work hard daily, listen carefully, and think critically will do best in my studio. I can be brutally honest with my students, both when they fail and succeed. It's nothing personal. You're training to become your best, and I'll do my absolute BEST to support you! But only if you're truly dedicated...
I have taught and played clarinet professionally for over 20 years, around the Chicago area, the US, and abroad. Dedicated students who follow my instructions, think critically, and practice DAILY frequently find themselves at the top of their music programs surprisingly quickly!
After your free trial lesson, lessons will be paid in full monthly. Missed lessons will be either rescheduled or credited to the following month.
Please respect our scheduling. I understand that life happens. In the event of an emergency, I’m happy to work with you to reschedule missed lessons to the best of my ability. However, if you choose not to respect my time I will, in turn, choose not to work with you anymore.
