take your playing to the next level with Virtual Clarinet Academy


As experienced clarinet teachers, we know that maintaining good practicing habits during the summer is essential for success in the year ahead. However, this doesn't mean that practicing should feel like a chore!

At Virtual Clarinet Academy, our approach is personalized to each student and their schedule: everyone receives a unique Technique Plan and there are no “meeting” requirements. Students send us video recordings of their playing at their own pace and in return receive detailed, personalized feedback from our instructors

Each student sits down to practice with: 


* Exercises selected for their individual ability that focus on tone, technique, and articulation 

* High-quality demonstration videos and tips for practicing for each exercise

* The ability to ask for help when they get stuck 

* Materials designed to limit screen time 

* Feedback from professionals when they’ve practiced to the best of their ability


THE BEST PART: students can receive unlimited feedback on assigned exercises! We want everyone to be successful in developing their clarinet abilities this summer and know that sometimes you have to ask lots of questions to retain knowledge.
