My music lessons plans change a lot so that none of us get bored but there are a few elements that are always there. We always spend some time thinking exploring posture and breathing, which are the pillars of wind playing technique. A field of my teaching that I find especially relevant is improvisation. Be it a complete beginner who cannot read music yet, an advanced clarinetist or an adult learner, everyone can create music using minimal technical resources. Therefore, it is a very immediate way to make music! The lessons may cover reading music, music theory, solo, orchestra and chamber music repertoire.
