About

Dr. Clements has been teaching privately since 2010 and is currently welcoming new students of all ages and levels! She is on faculty at Harmony Project Phoenix and All-Saints' Music School in Phoenix and also offers lessons through Desert Ridge High School in Gilbert, Mountain Ridge High School in Glendale, in-home lessons in South Scottsdale, and online lessons on ZOOM or Skype. Dr. Clements is always eager to share music throughout the community and is available for  master classes, sectional teaching, or chamber music coaching.

Teaching Philosophy 

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

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.
