Welcome to the Studio!
Dr. Clements has been teaching privately since 2010 and is currently welcoming new students of all ages and levels! She is an adjunct faculty member at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and teaches applied clarinet lessons for majors, minors, and dual-enrollment students. As a teaching artist at Harmony Project Phoenix, Dr. Clements teaches clarinet and saxophone private/group lessons and visits programs throughout the Phoenix Union High School District (PXU) weekly. Dr. Clements teaches private lessons at Mountain Ridge High School in Glendale, at Desert Ridge High School in Gilbert, and in-home lessons in South Scottsdale. Dr. Clements is always eager to share music throughout the community and is available for master classes, sectional teaching, or chamber music coaching.
Music is a unique discipline that encompasses many subjects and teaches invaluable lessons such as discipline, respect, critical thinking skills and self confidence. Ultimately, it is a form of human expression unlike any other. My goal is to provide a positive environment for my students to excel in learning and discover their musical potential through the beauty of their instrument.
A Typical Lesson
Lessons focus on the specific needs and interests of each individual student. A typical lesson will address quality sound production and technical proficiency; etudes and exercises; solo and chamber music; music fundamentals and foundations of music theory; and engaged listening.

Private lessons offer the opportunity to learn one-on-one through a customized approach for each individual. I strive to help students connect to their instrument on a deeper level by expanding their playing through tone production, technical studies, and repertoire of all kinds.
Woodwind Coaching and Clarinet Choir
Dr. Clements directs the CGCC Clarinet Ensemble that meets weekly on Tuesday nights and is open to students and community members. She is also the director of clarinet choir at Mountain Ridge High School, where the ensemble has received Superior Ratings at District Solo & Ensemble in '22 and '23. Dr. Clements frequently coaches woodwinds for the Phoenix Youth Symphony and the Metropolitan Youth Symphony of Arizona programs.
Dr. Clements has presented master classes for Glendale Community College, the Minnesota Clarinet Academy, Brophy College Preparatory, Harmony Project Phoenix, and many others.
Virtual Lessons and Workshops
During March 2020, Dr. Clements began offering private lessons to many students online and has continued the virtual options for students who prefer to study from the comfort and safety of their own home. Please feel free to contact me about online options for private lessons.
