Beginning or perfecting in music - learning to play clarinet
''Once upon a time there was a breath. Lighter than a whisper, it melted into the wind, lamenting that it was never heard...'' But before continuing this story, a little introduction is in order. 🙋🏻‍♀️ | Hi ! I'm Lisa and I study clarinet at the Lucerne University of Music. 🎶 | But beyond the pleasure of playing on stage, alone or in a group, I love to make my passion known and allow other people to become familiar with my instrument. 👩🏻‍🏫 | For a few years, I have been teaching the clarinet online and at the music school of Crans-Montana. But back to the story. “...One day, he heard in the distance the chords of a guitar accompanying a joyful and magical song. From that day on, the little breath decided to become music. So he let himself be carried away by the wind, which deposited him next to a clarinet. Curious, the breath slipped into the mouthpiece and slid down to the pavilion. It was fun, a bit like a slide...'' But what is a clarinet? Let's take a short break in history to clear up this point. 📖 | The clarinet is a wind instrument of the woodwind family. It is made of ebony and has 18 keys that allow the musician to play all the notes. 🎤 | It is the instrument closest to the human voice. Indeed, it can sound very loud or very soft, very high or very low and has a wide variety of sounds. 🌬 | To make a sound with his clarinet, the musician blows into the mouthpiece and vibrates the reed. A bit like when you make a blade of grass hiss by blowing on it. Let's see how our breath is doing. “... He then gathered all his strength and blew a big blow into the beak. Nope ! It didn't seem like the right method. He then tried to tap on the reed and slipped through the holes and the keys. Until, finally, the breath becomes a melody...'' Turn your breath into music too! 🎺 | Playing a musical instrument will allow you to express your creativity and relax while developing your brain. Plus, seeing your progress will make you proud and gain self-confidence. 💡 | The clarinet is a practical instrument. Indeed, it disassembles into 5 parts that you can store in a small box and take with you everywhere! 🇨🇭 | In Switzerland, there are many harmonies and other ensembles where the clarinet has a prominent place. You will therefore be able, as soon as you have mastered the basics, to meet lots of new people with whom to share your passion. Let's finish the story. “...Other breaths, strings and beats, impressed by the beauty of the melody, found himself a musical instrument too. This is how the 1st orchestra was born! I am available on weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) in Valais and during the week in Lucerne. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information ☀️

Above all i encourage my students to have fun with music! Course locations: Paris 13th and neighbouring arrondissements. Languages: French, English. I have been working as a Professional for 25 years, I have toured all over the world. I am also a composer with six albums under my name. I'll be very happy to meet with you! Musically, Rob

Kai
clarinet teacher, We can learn about the clarinet at all levels
The clarinet is a single-reed musical instrument in the woodwind family, with a nearly cylindrical bore and a flared bell. Clarinets comprise a family of instruments of differing sizes and pitches. The clarinet family is the largest woodwind family, ranging from the BB♭ contrabass to the E♭ soprano. The B♭ soprano clarinet is the most common type, and is the instrument usually indicated by the word "clarinet". German instrument maker Johann Christoph Denner is generally credited with inventing the clarinet sometime around the year 1700 by adding a register key to the chalumeau, an earlier single-reed instrument. Over time, additional keywork and airtight pads were added to improve the tone and playability. Today the clarinet is a standard fixture of the orchestra and concert band and is used in classical music, military bands, klezmer, jazz, and other styles.

We can look for songs and music styles and adapt them to your level and wishes. Playing music you like makes learning easier and a lot more fun. I give acoustic guitar and piano lessons. Guitar lessons are also possible on a twelve-string guitar. I also give oboe lessons. Since 4 years I teach with a lot of pleasure in a homely atmosphere, namely in my own living room!

Oboe lessons/Reeds lessons/Piano lessons. To all levels and ages
for my Oboe lessons I like to focus on depending on the personal needs of the student are breathing technique, finger skills, posture and creativity. Most importantly though I try to convey my passion for this unique instrument and support my student on his personal journey of learning and growth. In order to create beautiful music, you will not only have to master playing the instrument but also making high quality reeds. Thats why also offer lessons on the craft of reed making, from the basics of making your first reed to perfecting concert grade reeds. My piano lessons cover a wide range of musical styles from Classical music, through Jazz all the way to contemporary pop music, depending on the students interests. Depending on the needs of the student the teaching can include and focus on different technical aspects such as finger flexibility, music theory or improvisation.

Learn how to play traditional Chinese bamboo flute (Xiao or Dizi)
The bamboo flute is a popular woodwind instrument that is wildly used in traditional Chinese music and Chinese plays. The clean and high-pitched sound from bamboo flute makes it one of the most representative instruments in Chinese culture. The flute was entitled “Bamboo flute” because most of them are made of bamboo. Despite of the fact that some of the flutes are made of other materials such as stones, woods...etc, the flutes are still known as bamboo flute due to the excellent and characterized sounding effects from bamboo. The typical bamboo flutes are shown in Figure 1. There are two basic types of bamboo flutes according to their pitch scale and general size. The first type is called “Bang-Di”. It is basically shorter in length and capable of producing higher pitches. The tone from this type of bamboo flute is brighter and sharper. The other type is called “Qu-Di”. It is longer in length and lower in pitch produced. Opposite to the first type, the tone of Qu-Di is more smooth. The bamboo flute is a transposing instrument, and the tonality of every flute is marked on the side of their bodies. Generally, the bamboo flutes can cover pitch scale up to two octaves plus one whole tone. In this class, you will learn about - Playing technique - Membrane pasting and adjustment - Basic music theory : Score reading (numbered musical notation/modern staff notation) - Traditional pieces playing or pieces preferred by students. Looking forward to see you, A bientôt ! ***Veuillez noter que je travaille actuellement à temps plein, avec des horaires très chaotiques et une charge de travail importante. Donc, si vous souhaitez suivre des cours avec moi, il sera peut-être nécessaire de vérifier nos disponibilités chaque semaine pour organiser les leçons. Si cela vous convient, n’hésitez pas à m’envoyer un message. Merci !*** **Please note that I currently have a full-time job with highly irregular and busy schedules. So, if you’d like to have lessons with me, it may be necessary to check our availability each week to schedule classes. If this works for you, please feel free to send me a message. Thank you!**

Loïc
State graduate oboe teacher. Experienced, passionate and dynamic, I offer private Oboe lessons!
I give with great pleasure and passion oboe lessons for budding musicians of all ages and all levels - from total beginner oboist to very advanced level - through progressive lessons, based on the instrumental technique of the oboe and the development of musical expression on the instrument. I am patient and attentive, and I consider that it is obviously essential to adapt to the objectives and personality of the student. My pedagogy is based on the exchange, the development of the listening of the feelings with the instrument, the methodology in the work which leads to the effectiveness, and naturally the pleasure which the practice of the oboe gets. I seek to transmit to the student the simple and effective technical and musical tools that will allow him to quickly be as autonomous as possible in his personal work outside of oboe lessons. I also play during the lesson, in order to guide the student as well as possible, and sometimes also to have him play in a duet and develop listening and collective practice. Teaching for ten consecutive years in conservatories, I have a very rich and solid experience of pedagogy. I can also give lessons on the making of oboe reeds: assembly, the different styles of scratching, the choice of reeds, tools, etc. This manual aspect, complementary to the practice of the oboe, also fascinates me a lot and I have acquired a great experience in this field during many years of practice. (If you are a total beginner, I can help and guide you to find a good instrument for rent, at a fair and reasonable price, as well as to get the basic equipment, don't hesitate)

Maria
Transverse flute and recorder teaching for kids and adults
In our class, 1st of all we are going to have fun learning. We are going to focus on the body position, breathing, embouchure, fingering, and play along songs. Even if you don't know how to read music, together we can learn both music and flute.

Ella
Private oboe lessons for all levels in Amsterdam and the North Holland region
During my oboe lessons, enjoying music is central. The double reed plays an important role in both the sound and the ease of playing the oboe. I make sure there is always a reed that plays nicely. In addition, I will pay a lot of attention to the way of blowing. This is the basis that ensures that the students can have fun and make music right from the start. . Making music together is the best thing there is, so I like to play along with the students in a duet. I guide advanced students in developing their (musical) creativity and, if they wish, I offer reed lessons. In these lessons I give tips for updating reeds and explain all the steps of the reed making process.

Music Lessons - Teaching flute to any age at any level up to pre-advanced
My music class varies in instrument, genre/style of music and level of musicality and is dependent on the individual who would like lessons. I teach face-to-face and online lessons. I tailor music flute around the student and their needs as I find a student-centric method always cultivates an enriching musical experience for the student and myself. I take great interest in understanding a student's unique goals, learning styles and preferences. I recognise that each student has a unique learning style; some students thrive with a structured approach, while others may prefer a more creative and exploratory method. By adapting my teaching techniques, and tailoring resources specific to the individual, I ensure you will feel completely comfortable and thoroughly enjoy your flute lessons. I create lesson plans and realistic goals that encourage students to reach their full potential. I keep detailed records of the student's progress, including milestones achieved, areas for improvement, and practice strategies. I believe it is vital to regularly share this information with the student and their parents in order to reinforce their growth and motivate them to continue their progress on flute. My teaching approach has the potential to enhance your music knowledge and skills in an impressive amount of time, making your flute lessons very rewarding and worthwhile! I love teaching any level at any age, as I believe music should be explored and enjoyed by everyone. Everyone has the ability to be a flautist!
