What (JUST) A Few Of Our Students Are Saying

Maria Kallinikos, Middle School Student

Thank you so much for teaching me how to play clarinet. I am so grateful that you are my private lesson teacher. You have taught me so many songs, scales, and different fingerings. If it wasn’t for your help, I wouldn’t have made Wind Ensemble or Region Band. I have been through ups and downs and you have helped me with all of them. You have given me the courage to be the best I can be, and to accomplish anything to my ability. So I would just like to thank you, for putting time into helping me become a better musician.

Ainsley Priakos, Middle & High School Student

Best private lesson teacher ever! Thank you for not only helping me with the clarinet, but with so much more. I am so thankful to have had you in my life not just as a lesson teacher, but as a mentor and someone to look up to.

Caroline Fernandes, Middle & High School Student

Mrs. Bronson is an excellent teacher. She pushed me to be my best and always prepared me for auditions, competitions, and other performances. She is knowledgeable of the clarinet and looks after the progress of her students and caters to the needs of the student. Her preparation and previous knowledge of the music you are playing helps you to learn lots of information as quickly as possible. She truthfully wants the best for her students and helps them grow as musicians. She allows her students to develop their own creative style as a musician and shows them how to play all types of music. Learning from Mrs. Bronson is informative and fun because you feel encouraged and motivated to develop your clarinet playing skills.
