Open Door Clarinet and Tin Whistle Lessons Vancouver

Mike Brown weaves his Whistle and Clarinet Lessons around the idea that music should be enjoyable and goals should determine where the lessons lead, whether it’s to play for fun and perform for friends, to enter a competition, or to form a group and play in public! Mike Brown likes to explore the sound the instrument produces. Technique, sheet music reading, style, ear training, theory, history, improvisation, all play their part; whether the student tackles them individually or they are weaved into a well rounded musical experience.
