Welcome! I am excited to launch a new website based on my love of music. Today's blog begins the "Clarinet Alphabet", which I wrote in 2015 as preparation for a clarinet sectional at Sparta MS band camp.
A is for ATTITUDE! Always give your best effort, listen carefully to instruction and keep a smile on your face! As with learning any new skill, it will take dedication and PRACTICE to make the sound you want to have. A is also for ASSEMBLY! Case on floor. 1) put reed in mouth 2) cork grease (if necessary) 3) assemble bottom to top: Be careful of the bridge keys across the upper and lower section, as shown in class. Use left hand to lift key. Small twisting motions. Refer to book.
Please explore my website. I have included lesson information, availability for solo and ensemble accompaniment, and event music for your next party, reception, or wedding.
