About Liam

I have been playing the clarinet and bass clarinet for 16 years, and teaching for 7. I am a professional clarinetist playing contemporary music, and so I like to introduce students to the new and exciting challenges involved in playing the music of today, but also recognize the importance of playing older music. Techniques such as circular breathing, double tonguing and slap tonguing are vital in performing new music and I think it is important to start thinking about these things from the get go! Plus, its fun to make the clarinet sound like its not a clarinet sometimes.

I am a founder of the contemporary ensemble TAK and we play many concerts in and around New York City. I have a Bachelor and Master's in music performance and am looking to share some of the things I've learned with other people who want to start playing the clarinet, or who already play and are as passionate as I am.

Approved subjects

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.

Clarinet

I have been playing clarinet for 16 years, and professionally for 10. I started a contemporary ensemble called tak who just received a New Music USA Impact Fund grant, among other things. We are very successful. I have been teaching clarinet for 7 years, at schools and privately.

Computer Gaming

I have been a gamer for 15 years on PC and console. I was the number 1 in Australia in Trackmania Nations, and currently moving up the ranks in Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch. I also play rocket league regularly. I am able to become good at any game I play.

General Music

I have been a musician for all my life, I went to a specialized music high school in Australia, got my Bachelor at music school and got my Masters at music school. I have been teaching people about music for 7 years.

Music Production

I am fluent in all the different music editing software, Ableton live, logic pro, reason, cubase, pro tools and even the freeware like fruityloops and audacity. I have recorded and self produced several albums. I have taught music technology for several years now.

Sight Singing

I have a bachelor and a Masters in music, the latter in contemporary music at Manhattan School of Music. In that degree I took classes in atonal sight singing twice a week for two years, and got pretty good at looking at any interval and knowing what it should sound like. I like to relate that knowledge to singing other kinds of music, as it is extremely helpful and atonal sight singing is a lot more difficult than classical.
