"I can heartily recommend Michelle Anderson's online clarinet courses. I have taken two that she has offered, and I was lucky enough to be included in two master classes. If your busy lifestyle precludes private live lessons, you will appreciate the help that Michelle can offer you on the internet."

"In my late 50s, after decades of desire, I finally decided to start learning to play the clarinet. But with my busy and unpredictable schedule, I did not have time to commit to regular lessons. I started practicing on my own and soon experienced issues and needed help. I searched the internet and encountered Michelle Anderson's clarinet lesson and community website. As I viewed her videos on YouTube it became apparent very quickly that she was a top professional clarinetist who had a tremendous gift for teaching. Having many decades of experience in teaching students, she knows how to explain and demonstrate principles effectively so the student can internalize them. She imparts the fundamentals and creates the foundation for good (lifelong) technique. Through her How To Play Clarinet More Easily course I am continuing to experience an ongoing process of improvement in all dimensions of playing - tone, high notes, articulation, fingering, rhythm.... Her lessons opened my eyes to the vital importance of "fast air" to make good sound. She showed me how to achieve a good embouchure. She answered many of my nagging questions such as why I was "getting squeaks" and why at times it seemed "difficult to blow". I even found answers to questions concerning reeds and mouthpieces. Finally, and maybe most importantly, I find her lessons highly enjoyable and I look forward to future sessions with her videos."

"Thanks for your beautiful work. It has really helped this 65-year-old hard-of-hearing player. I am in a community band--I asked to play 3rd clarinet. The director heard me warming up and placed me as a first clarinet (one of three). Everyone says my tone is so beautiful (I faithfully practice your long tone exercises and blow air three times through phrases, etc.). I have a very good 1947/48 Buffet with "artist level" reconditioning, Chadash barrels, and M13 Lyre 88 mouthpiece. But the tone really blossomed once I went through your 30-day workout. Now I am working on articulation and pitch correction through tongue position."
