explain which reed is best for you and how to fit it to the mouthpiece, discuss playing posture and breathing techniques, and teach you how to play musical notes on your woodwind instrument.

The clarinet is a great woodwind instrument for beginners as it is easy to play, has a beautiful tone, and can be used to play a range of music genres from classical to jazz. The clarinet shares fingerings and techniques with all woodwind instruments, so if you or your child wants to eventually learn to play saxophone, it's an easy jump to make!

In-Person Clarinet Lessons

In-person, face-to-face learning is the most traditional and effective way to learn clarinet. It means we can work on rhythm and timing better, and play music together as I accompany you on piano. This is a great way to keep learners motivated!

Students can attend private tutoring classes at my premises in Lewisham, or I will travel to you if you live local to me in London (Hither Green, Blackheath, Lee, Lewisham, Dulwich or Greenwich).
