Rhapsody in blue/ Jazz on Clarinet


25 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Nov 11, 2017

It's the funnest piece to play on the clarinet but it's tricky to do it really well! Many clarinetists don't know how to truly bend the sound. If you're brave there's a way to do it and it will help you with other jazz pursuits on your clarinet. I'm especially interested in helping you if you're playing this for your band or orchestra but if you're just wanting to master it for yourself that's great as well!

I'd be willing to do a follow up lesson for additional pointers at no charge if you're working on this piece.

This could also be fun if you are interested in branching out and getting a few pointers on improving tone, bending sounds, reed timing, advanced ligatures and all the geeky stuff your band teacher's not going to know :-).

I think this would be ideal for you if you have played for at least a year or two and are already familiar with the basics. It's probably also good for you if you don't have a very advanced teacher who specialized in clarinet, otherwise of course you could just ask your teacher! I'm happy to chat with advanced clarinetists or beginners alike, it'll be fun!

Flexible on the simbi so hit me up even if you're below the 25s and we can trade or you can pay it forward.

About David Profitt

I love gardening - the homesteading, permaculture movement is fascinating to me. We have a few fruit trees, and lots raised garden beds... maybe getting chickens soon. My family is super important to, I love the simple life and am a homebody at heart. I grew up in Cape Town and miss the beach, mountains and weather and of course my family. I'm inspired by people who make a difference in social justice issues through personal relationships that are equitable and full of regard. My best experiences have been with my family making friends with people who are different than us and can teach us what we don't know about other parts of the world and perspectives on the world around us. show more
