For those of you who have been around QuickStart Clarinet for a while, you are likely aware of the Monthly Masterclass program that I started at the beginning of 2020.
But what exactly is it?
As I explored all of the ways I could best help as many clarinetists as possible, I came to the realization that the best way to make the fastest improvement is with very individualized attention.
I had tried some broader approaches with the original How to Play Clarinet and How to Play Music courses, and The Next Generation Clarinet Method, which were good, but very broad and generic.
With all of those products the student has to come up with their own plan for implementing the information. However, I found that students were able to get even better results, faster when they had a teacher there to lay out a more individualized plan.
That's why I came up with the idea for the Monthly Masterclass!
What if there was a way that I could get some regular time to go after some specific struggles for individual players? I could only imagine the results that would be possible!
And, what if people had their own group of other players who could inspire and motivate them? It would be amazing to have that kind of community encouragement!
That's my dream for the Monthly Masterclass, and it is well underway!
We are currently in the 4th month since the program opened, and I have two wonderful students that I get to listen to and work with each month. In just the first 4 classes we have made some serious progress diagnosing and tackling some very specific issues, and it has been a blast!
The thing that I am most excited about, is that I now have it set up for there to be open enrollment for the Monthly Masterclass, which means you could join in on the fun!
The program is perfect for anybody who is really serious about improving, but feels uncertain about what exactly to work on to get to that next level. If you are overwhelmed by the hundreds of things that you could be doing better, or there are just a couple things that you need to fix but aren't quite sure what it is or how to do it, then the Monthly Masterclass would be the perfect place to get exactly what you need to improve your playing.
If that sounds perfect for where you are in your clarinet journey, then head over to www.quickstartclarinet.com/masterclassinfo to learn more and join the program!
I am so excited that I am able to accept new students into this program now! Unfortunately, there is only a limited number of hours in a month, so the enrollment may not be open forever, so be sure to get enrolled if it sounds like something that you want to do!
And if you are happy with the free general information, you are loving working through The Next Generation Clarinet Method, or you are getting enough information out of your band or private teacher, then that is great! I am just here to provide as many resources as I can for you, and I wish you the best of luck on your clarinet journey!
