Lessons based on your goals and your life
I'm invested in creating an inclusive learning environment that will help cultivate your personal relationship with your instrument, your studio mates, and the music that you play. This is an inclusive, all-ages and -abilities studio, where the curriculum is built around your life, goals, and motivations for enjoying and playing music.
I believe that every student has a right to a high-level music education, and as a teacher, I draw from my experiences as a Juilliard- and Eastman-trained musician to help you achieve your goals.
I want to help you become a confident, expressive musician, not just an excellent player. In your lessons, you'll learn music theory, history, and musicianship while you work on your etudes, repertoire, and reed-making skills. What you learn and play will be tailored to your unique goals and interests.
I'll also help you get connected with opportunities to play in honors concerts, community orchestras, and solo recitals, so you can meet others and have exciting experiences using the skills that you learn on your instrument. My students have all attended their All-State Honors Band festivals, and have a 100% success rate with college acceptances.
Every student in my studio (ages 13 & up) will get the opportunity to learn to make reeds! No experience necessary. If cost is a barrier, I will help you get the tools you need to learn to make your own reeds from scratch.
Enrollment permitting, all members of the studio will be invited to participate in a monthly studio class where we'll talk reeds, repertoire, audition tips, and perform for each other!
Lessons are available both online via Zoom and in your home in the NYC area. Please click the button below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your free first lesson.
