Tom Wolfs teaches clarinet lessons in Amsterdam at the Harmoniecorps Tuindorp music association in Amsterdam Noord. Tom is a professional clarinetist (graduated with a Master's degree cum laude from the Conservatory of Amsterdam!) and teaches on Tuesday evenings in the association 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 obtained her master's degree at the Conservatory of Amsterdam in 2022. She has been employed by the Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy since 2021 and has previously played in various top orchestras, such as the Concertgebouworkest and the Netherlands Wind Ensemble. You can take lessons with her on Tuesday afternoon and evening in the rehearsal building of HCT.
What are you going to learn?
Tom and Sophie teach you everything you need to know to play your instrument properly. Of course you will learn the correct blowing and finger technique by practicing a lot. But you also learn how to select or work a good reed, which mouthpiece to use and how to maintain your instrument. So too much to mention.
Clarinet lessons for children and adults
The lessons are for young and old, from beginner to advanced! Everyone can learn to play this beautiful instrument. And can you already play a nice piece? Tom and Sophie still have a lot to teach you!
Don't own a clarinet yet?
That's no problem. As a member of HCT you can get a clarinet on loan for free!
