Students receive 12 weekly private lessons with Dr. Humberd, where they work on technique exercises, etudes, and solo pieces.
Students take part in weekly studio classes held on Monday evenings where they can perform for each other, work on their teaching skills, and learn about various clarinet topics.
Our students frequently have the opportunity to perform for guest clarinetists. Recent guest artists have included Ricardo Morales and Spencer Prewitt.
Our clarinet pedagogy course is designed to prepare performance students to teach at the highest level upon graduation. Students will leave this course with the tools they need to launch a private lessons business, including a private lessons contract, teaching experience, repertoire lists, fee structure, tax information, and management and marketing skills.
The literature course is offered at both the graduate and undergraduate levels and is designed to introduce students to a diverse body of clarinet repertoire from both a historical and performance perspective.
Clarinet students at Lee have the opportunity to participate in several large performing ensembles, including Symphonic Band, a touring ensemble directed by Mark Bailey, Wind Ensemble, directed by David Holsinger, and the Lee University Symphony Orchestra, led by Sara Pearson.
