Hello! Thank you swinging by : )
You might ask: what is it like to learn clarinet online? Good question, let me preempt some others you might have!
when you get in touch with me, we can have a (free) video chat covering any topics you like. We could formulate some goals, plan how to achieve them, talk equipment, lesson frequency/duration, or just get to know eachother a bit!
at this stage, if you're not sold on online clarinet lessons, just let me know and I'll get out of your hair!
if you want to procede, though, we can line up lesson times and lengths as suits you. Between lessons, and again, completely FREE, you can email me questions you have and I will upload video responses to a private Google Drive folder so you can have the instruction on record forever.
That’s it. No pressure to buy lessons by the ‘semester’, no ‘jumping into’ a musical relationship completely blind. Your lessons are on your terms, with somebody you’ve come to know, and you get a personalised educational video library for free!
When you learn online with me, you can expect a smooth and convenient experience. I use high-end streaming software, cameras, and microphones to deliver a good-looking and good-sounding digital learning sessions. I carefully use screen-sharing and music-notation software to explain music theory, and can direct students to my own YouTube videos for reference demos of any technical topic.
In all my years as a teacher, I’ve never come across a better system that drives students' musical and technical development faster than this!
Now, and less importantly, here’s a little bit about me!
I completed a BA and DipMus at the University of Melbourne (2013) and have maintained a private teaching studio since 2011.
As a musician/performer, I am a casual clarinettist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, a former clarinettist with the Royal Australian Air Force Band, Australia, and a foundinf member of Isolation Chamber, Crosswinds Ensemble, Axes Quartet, and Isolation Chamber. You can listen to my playing here: https://tinyurl.com/2p98u76s
Before I full-time music, I worked in a retail, archaeology (Bar Ilan University), grammar tutoring, and personal training.
Nowadays, I travel the world, with my wife and two kids, teaching clarinet online as my full-time job :)
Can’t wait to hear from you.
