We have designed an education club for you.
You have asked us to teach you more about your instrument, more about hand selection and what it really means, more about repair, how to build a successful teaching studio and how to advance your career in the music biz.
We are so happy you have asked because we want to help you. We think it’s time more manufacturers cared about your success as much as they care about about their own.
We know musicians and the audiences they serve, music teachers, repair technicians and manufacturers too can all flourish together if we rig the system to make everyone win instead of only a few. We want to help as many as we can to advance and prosper.
And we don’t care what clarinet you play on. Well, maybe we do, a little, but not enough to not roll out the ROYAL red carpet for you. We welcome all of you: Backun, Buffet, Selmer, Leblanc, Rossi, Patricola and Royal lovers too are invited to learn with us too.
This club is for everyone and anyone who wants to grow their knowledge, strengths and abilities. And even if you play the trombone, we won’t hold it against you. You can learn with us too.
Below is our overarching manifesto. If you believe what we believe, we hope you will pay your buck and opt in. We offer special perks to clarinetists, teachers, repair techs, and enthusiasts who are members too.
Music For Good Manifesto
We believe that learning to play a musical instrument is a profound journey that positively and uniquely changes us. When one learns to play a musical instrument it deepens our understanding of who we are and what we are capable of. This happens because learning to play a musical instrument requires, at a minimum, more flexibility, courage, tenacity, and curiosity from us. It requires a look within. And to grow these skills one must embark on a journey of handholding and support from our family, friends, peers, patrons, colleagues and instructors.
As we walk on this path together, with others who have traveled on it before us, or who are just like us, or who just want to be like us, it teaches us to be more empathic and kind to ourselves and to others, equally, because no one succeeds at learning how to make beautiful music alone. Within a year of learning to play, we find ourselves with new strengths, new beliefs and new passions too.
When we open our hearts and minds to music making, we open ourselves up to new possibilities. And in return for doing so, we are gifted with greater discipline and empathy, with a renewed purpose towards our own lives, and with new friendships we encounter on the path we share with so many others on a similar journey.
Everyone deserves to experience the power of music making. And by doing so, we find ourselves challenged to break down the barriers that divide us, which can lead to the greater good. New growth spurs this kind of openness and desire for new understanding.
As such, the investment you make into Music for Good can serve those who:
- Need to find ways to advance their professional pursuits and ‘better’ their best’.
- Cannot afford to experience the richness of learning to play a musical instrument.
- Provide you with resources you can use for these 2 reasons or to help your studio thrive in any way you choose.
