Tom Wolfs teaches clarinet in Amsterdam at music association Harmoniecorps Tuindorp in Amsterdam Noord. Tom is a professional clarinetist (graduated Master Cum Laude at the Conservatory of Amsterdam!) and teaches on Tuesday evening at the club building of HCT. You’ve probably seen him on TV. At Podium Witteman, Top2000 or the New Year’s concert of the Netherlands Wind Ensemble.
Sophie Schreurs has been our second clarinet teacher since 2019. This allows us to place extra students. Sophie is studying at the Amsterdam Conservatory and is studying there for her bachelor’s with Arno Piters. Sophie has played with many orchestras and on many stages, including the Concertgebouw. You can take lessons with her on Tuesday evening in the HCT club building.
What are you learning
Tom and Sophie teach you everything that is needed to play your instrument well. Of course, you will learn the right blow and finger technique by practicing a lot. But you also learn how to select or edit a good reed, which mouthpiece you can use best and how to maintain your instrument. Too much to mention.
Depending on your level, you can quickly become acquainted with playing together with other musicians in the beginners band or concert band of HCT.
Clarinet lessons for young and olD
The lessons are for young and old, from beginning to (far) advanced! Everyone can learn to play this beautiful instrument. You already have some skills? Tom and Sophie still have a lot to teach you!
Don't have a clarinet?
No problem at all. As a member of HCT, you can get a clarinet for free on loan!
