Veronica in the office has been great, accessible, and makes it very easy to schedule lessons and create a plan that works for you. Michael has been a really awesome teacher! He is very talented and really takes the time to figure out the best methods to keep you on track and getting to the next level each lesson!

I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my violin playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson.”

“I’ve been taking clarinet lessons at Sage Music for almost three years. My playing has drastically improved over this time and as a result I’ve been successful in auditioning for NYC All City High School Concert Band and Summer Arts Institute run by NYC Department of Education. The woodwind teacher, Michael Conklin, has been a great partner in this process. The staff and teachers have always been very welcoming and supportive.”

Online Clarinet Lessons

Unable to make it in to Sage Music? We can help.

We currently have students who fly from Washington, Texas, and Florida to take lessons at our award winning school. But we realize that not everyone can get to us. So we now offer clarinet lessons online for those students who are far away and won’t settle for less than a Sage education.

Other students are worried about the current health concerns, but still wish to avoid putting their life on hold.

Either way, you can benefit from the Sage Music Online. Unlike other online programs, you’ll get the same great faculty and community that you’d otherwise get at our many school locations.

  • Take music lessons with us from anywhere in the world!
  • Enjoy your progress from the security of your own home
  • Get access to our online community with open mics, studio classes, discussions, performances and more
  • Enrolled students get a free enrollment into our flagship course, The Sage Student ($549 for non students) so that you can learn how to master any music you wish
  • Benefit from the expert guidance of our professional, knowledgeable, trained and supervised Sage Music Teachers

I had my first lesson via Skype with Jeremy Roberts today and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my…playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson. Now it’s time to enjoy and get to work on my homework. Perfect practice makes perfect with Sage.”

Want to know how to master and play one of the most delightful instruments of the woodwind section? The clarinet is the perfect instrument for both solo and ensemble performers. We’d love to help you learn the foundations for playing this instrument, so that you can find your own expressive voice on the clarinet. If you are beginning your musical journey with the clarinet or perfecting your skills, Sage Music can help you play your best.

Your First Clarinet Lesson at Sage Music

  • Your teacher will take some time to get to know you, your goals, and your background. Then they will be able to start planning a personalized lesson plan to help you achieve your goals.
  • In your first clarinet lesson, your teacher will show you how to put the clarinet together and how to hold it in the right position.
  • Your teacher will show you how to put your reed on and how to make a beautiful sound, and where your fingers need to go.
  • After you can assemble, hold, and make a great sound, your teacher will get you on track to play the music that you want to play.

Clarinet Lessons For Experienced Players

  • For a more advanced clarinet player, Sage Music teachers can work with you on more advanced techniques, including tone, projection, use of dynamics, playing in the higher register, velocity, and increasing finger dexterity.

But no matter what level you are at, our goal is to take you as you are, whatever your background, to help you feel comfortable in your clarinet lessons, and to design a lesson plan for your specific needs and goals.

Sage Music offers clarinet lessons at our two convenient locations in NYC: Long Island CIty, Queens and Greenpoint/Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
