Contact for an estimate. I base price on duration/complexity of the music. I’ll produce professional scores/parts in the form of .PDF, .MID, .XML, and/or .MUS.
I’ve studied with some of the best and love to use their knowledge and my professional experiences to create plans with which budding clarinetists can develop their skills.
Supplemental help for music majors or high school theory students. I’ll take you through the steps of common theory classes used at universities and beyond to fine tune your ear.
Articulation & Sound Production
Tonguing a little slow or heavy? Lacking tone or volume? I’ll bring handouts, demonstrate drills, and help to improve overall articulation and sound.
Audition & Nerves
All-State or College auditions are a beast of their own. Just because you or your student can play the solo in the practice room doesn’t mean when the pressure is on it’ll happen. I have a lot of experience in eliminating nerves and preparing for the big audition through a plethora of practice and preparation techniques. For individuals or entire ensembles of any level or instrument.
How to Practice
Something that often is overlooked when a student is developing. The art of how to practice and efficient use of time is invaluable.
I’ll cover anything you think your students need to work on… or if you’re not sure what you need, but know that you’d like a stronger ensemble, I’d be happy to work with your group of any level, size, or instrumentation.
