I believe that, like snowflakes, all students have their own unique abilities and approaches to playing music. I will treat each student as an individual and work with their current levels to create personalized learning plans. However, below are goals that I would like to accomplish with my students as a whole:

* Learn to become more advanced musicians as well as clarinetists

* Produce a clear and focused tone created by proper air support and embouchure

* Use proper hand position to increase control over technical passages

* Show clear and consistent articulation

* Control a wide range of dynamics

Develop a fluency in reading written music

* Demonstrate an understanding of different musical styles and how to approach playing them.

* Become their own teachers outside of lessons. The most effective teacher anyone can have is themselves.
