"In my late 50’s, 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. Thank you, Michelle, for what you are giving to me."

"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. "

"Having taught myself to play the clarinet, and played by ear for several years I taught myself to read music; I still needed to have an idea of how the tune went before the dots made sense to me. Eventually I came across a few videos on YouTube from Michelle Anderson of Clarinet Mentors, There was no talking down, and everything she said was positive, and offered on a try it and see if it fits basis. When she began her new course I signed up immediately, 30 day money back guarantee, what could I lose. Lose? Within the first few days I was changing the way I blew from breathing into the instrument, to blowing with fast air and bringing in the corners of my mouth to form a proper embouchure. Add to that being taught how to count complicated rhythms more easily and I now can play things that I would never even have attempted before. I have seen online tuition where the price is far higher per year than Michelle asks for a one off payment. These sites talk about pedagogy and how they are experts. Not once have I heard this lady boast about how good she is or what qualifications she has, she just plays, and allows the music to speak for her. I will never regret signing up for this course, I play better, sound better, have more confidence about people hearing me, and I owe it all to Clarinet Mentors and the wise guidance of a very talented teacher. I emailed her a question one evening, I had an email reply in my in box the next morning. If you really want to learn to play clarinet, you owe it to yourself to sign up for Mrs Anderson’s course, all you can lose are bad playing habits.Having taught myself to play the clarinet, and played by ear for several years I taught myself to read music; I still needed to have an idea of how the tune went before the dots made sense to me.
