Queens College (Music Education)
Hi my name is Jonathan B. and I am currently a student at Queens College's Aaron Copland School of Music. I am currently studying Music Education and I have been playing clarinet for over 10 year. My love for music is the driving force in my decision to become an educator. Due to this I want to spread my love and appreciation for music with others. This along with my previous experiences in both music and teaching are both reasons why I love to teach.
I specialize in teaching lessons on both clarinet and bass clarinet. I also can teach music to younger children. I do this by using general music techniques to enhance the children's perspective overall in music. Thus my teaching methods are goal orientated and individualized for each student.
My goals when teaching students include: 1. Making sure students grasp every concept that I am addressing to them. 2. To keep everything they are learning both relevant and personal to their progress, 3. To make sure that they are interested and motivated to learn. 4. To keep them at a high standard while still making sure that they enjoy learning as much as possible.
This is why within my lesson I will ask students to have a mock performance for me after every couple of months of lessons. This will help them both get used to performing in front of others and assets their progress. I will use the results of this performance to see where they need work and how to approach it.
I am happy to travel to the most convient place for you to do lessons I can also hold lessons at either my home in Long Island or at Queens College.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing the joys of music with both you and your child. Hi my name is Jonathan B. and I am currently a student at Queens College's Aaron Copland School of Music.

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 been playing clarinet for over ten years. I am currently going to school for music education where I am learning teaching techniques that I can use to help with my lessons. I have a drive and passion for both music and teaching.
