Doubling Lessons

I specialize in woodwind doubling. I understand what it takes to play more than one instrument proficiently and effectively. I can explain the similarities and differences between the instruments and help you determine the most effective practice routine.

I’ve helped countless students pick up additional instruments. There are a number of reasons for taking up another instrument, but whatever the reasons, I can help you achieve your goals!

What Doubling Lessons will cover:

  • What is Doubling and Why Double?
  • How to Practice Doubling
  • Suggestions and Tips to Help You
  • Exercises, Literature, Songs, and Improv to do on the different instruments.
  • Doubling Logistics – Reeds, Set-ups, maintenance, etc.
