*NEW* Dallas ​Virtual Clarinet Academy

  • Very simply, my job is to teach the students in the way that they learn most effectively at all levels so the more I learn about the student from them, their parents, and their directors the better lessons will go for everyone. In light of the current circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I founded the Dallas Virtual Clarinet Academy where students can study with me to prepare for any of their upcoming school events from anywhere via Facetime, GoogleDuo, Skype, and other Face to Face Virtual Platforms without missing a beat. 

  • The purpose of lessons is to cement and augment good habits of clarinetistry and musicianship in each student. A misunderstanding that commonly occurs is that lessons are "remedial" or for only students who don't understand, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Lessons can help students who are having a hard time, but are intended also to deepen and strengthen understanding of all students so that they can not only be successful but understand why they are successful rather than just parroting a band director. 

  • Equipped with a Yeti Snowball Ice Microphone and studio-quality headphones in a professional studio space, I am able to provide students with feedback based on the sound they are truly producing, rather than what my stock computer speakers are able to hear. 

  • Because of the audio setup, I am able to provide examples of playing that are nearly true to life, giving students an extra leg up as they prepare for what is coming this fall. 

  • Additionally, Dallas Virtual Clarinet Academy Students have access to my studio pedagogical materials including handbooks, videos, and access to me anytime they need me outside of a lesson.
