Florida State University (Clarinet Performance)
Hi, my name is Audrey. I'm currently a student at Florida State University, and I'm about to enter my second year there. I'm home for the summer, and I would like to begin tutoring clarinet and music theory for younger students. While I do not have exclusive experience teaching clarinet, I know that my love for clarinet and working with younger people will help me thrive as a tutor. I would also like to tutor music theory. I have helped many peers with the rigorous theory work at Florida State, and I love the joy that I get when they succeed in this subject.
I have been involved in music since I was 5 years old, when I began on the piano. When I began middle school, I started in the band program, where I was assigned to play clarinet. Immediately I loved it. Since starting clarinet, I have made the Florida All State Band and/or Orchestra 5 times. I was among some of the highest chairs whilst in All State.
Along with All State, I did the All District band for 5 years as well, consistently placing in the top two chairs. I have also been a camp counselor for the First Coast Community Music School for 3 years, in which I had to be a counselor for the clarinet section.
My senior year of high school, I was the section leader for the clarinet section. This position was often rigorous, as it put me in positions to make executive decisions, and I had to be an excellent role model for my section. At the end of the year, I got the Band Leadership Award. While being a section leader, as well as a camp counselor, I had to teach or help students one-on-one on numerous occasions, so while I have no official paid experience, I do have experience in handling private teaching situations.
As for music theory, I took basic theory my freshman year in high school, and passed with all A's. Senior year, I took Advanced Placement Music Theory, in which again I got straight A's, as well as getting a 5 (the highest possible score) on the AP test at the end of the year. At FSU, we are required to take four semesters of theory, and while I have only taken two so far (I take the next two this upcoming year), I got all A's in these courses as well, and have often tutored my peers in this course.
I really love working with others. I feel that is it one of my strongest character traits. For teaching, I will assign weekly assignments, however, they will be appropriate with your level. I will often ask for feedback on my teaching, because I feel that not only does the student learn from the teacher, but vice versa.
While I do have a part time job, I am done by 3 pm Monday-Thursday, and I always have Sundays off, so I'm more than willing to be flexible with your schedule. I only have a two hour cancellation policy, and this is because I absolutely understand if something comes up and you would need to reschedule. I'm also more than willing to teach you as many times a week as you want, for as long as you want. My minimum, however, is an hour. As far as teaching space, I can either teach at home, or I'm willing to travel to teach.
Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to meeting and helping you improve in your skills! :) Hi, my name is Audrey.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have gone to school specifically for clarinet from middle school through now, and will be continuing. I have played for 8 years now. I consistently made the Florida All State Bands or Orchestras, for 5 years in a row. I also made the District Band for 5 years. I was a camp counselor for clarinets for 3 years, and I was my high school (Douglas Anderson School of the Arts) Section Leader my senior year. I currently study at FSU for Clarinet Performance.
