"Our daughter has excelled at clarinet, alto clarinet and bass clarinet in no small part thanks to Lori's instruction. She is a gifted musician and works well with kids." -- Brian C., Lake in the Hills

"Lori is a well-rounded teacher!  Julia has been taking clarinet lessons from Lori for 2.5 years.  She has been patient while teaching her music theory and three octaves of scales, helping her get auditions ready at Cary-Grove High School and McHenry County Youth Orchestra, as well as coaching her for her School solo competitions and even accompanying her on the piano!

All the while, she gives Julia challenges to grow as a musician, encouraging her with etudes and even playing duets with her to motivate her on both B flat and bass clarinets.  I am happy with Lori as my daughter’s teacher and we’ll continue with her weekly lessons until she goes off to college!  Thank you, Lori!!!"

"My now High School Freshman daughter has been taking lessons from Lori since she was a 4th grader (and continues to). I could not have asked for a better teacher for my child. Seeing her progress from beginner to where she is now has been a very fun journey." -- Karen C., Lake in the Hills
