Who, What, When, Why, and How is QuickStart Clarinet?
Who: My name is Josh Goo, and I have been performing, teaching, and learning the clarinet basically my whole life. I have a Masters degree in clarinet performance from Northwestern University, and have studied with incredible teachers like Charles Neidich the professor at Juilliard, Michael Rusinek at the Aspen Summer Music Festival, and many others! I had access to these amazing opportunities not through “talent” or luck, but because of my superpower: I'm a great learner. I can take complex ideas about music and clarinet playing and simplify them by recognizing and repeating patterns. This allowed me to absorb a ton from my studies, and clearly pass that growth along in my teaching.
What: QuickStart Clarinet is my online platform where I share my knowledge through content on YouTube and social media, online courses, lessons, and more! It’s the tool through which I improve your clarinet journey. Where I iterate, experiment, and explore to find the most effective ways to help you reach your clarinet dreams!
When: Right now! You can click here to get started with the free Members Area, or go to the Shop and check out all of my current course and lesson offerings, or subscribe to the YouTube channel that I upload and livestream to every week.
Why: I believe music is one of the most beautiful hobbies and experiences. However, so many people get stuck as they are trying to learn. It doesn't sound good, the coordination is hard, reading music is confusing, and it all leads to frustration and quitting. My mission is to use my superpower of simplifying the complex, along with sharing the things I wish I knew a lot sooner, so you can find joy on your clarinet and music journey. Because when we are able to stick with it and learn the perseverance, listening, critical thinking, organization, teamwork, etc. that music develops, we just might be able to make the world a better place.
