Music is math and math is science and at the end of the day, so is music. But music is quite mysterious and enchanting. Maryanne teaches the whole student, not just their fingers. She takes each of her clarinet students a little further with their clarinet than when they first walk in the door or in the case on online lessons, a little further than when they first click "chat". She values character development and emotional health throughout the education process. The clarinet provides Maryanne with a personal growth and creative development- She longs to see her students reap these benefits from learning the instrument so many love to hear played. Her lessons provide a direct approach to air support, correct fingering position and how to achieve a beautiful dark tone by learning correct phrasing, air stream and clean articulation. Learning all the important repertoire such as orchestral excerpts, opera and the important solo works for clarinet will be included as we work together to achieve the desired results.
