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...

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.

Sight Singing,

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.
