Jenny Ziefel's Clarinet and Saxophone Studio

Welcome to Jenny Ziefel's Studio Website!

Information About Lessons

Lessons in person are in Kirkland at Metropolitan Music, at Mercer Island High School, and in Seattle at Metropolitan Music. Virtual lessons can be scheduled on any day that there are open lesson slots--let Jenny know if you prefer this option. The schedule is color coded: Seattle is yellow, Kirkland is blue, Mercer Island is purple.

Rates for the coming school year are $42.50/half hour. Half hour lessons are the shortest available--hour lessons are 2 slots on the calendar if needed.

Please notify Jenny 24 hours in advance of a missed lesson or as soon as possible in case of emergency or illness.  Students must pay for missed lessons without appropriate notification.

There are 2 recitals a year, one in the winter and one in late spring. This is an excellent opportunity to get experience performing and to hear other clarinet and saxophone players and is a good goal to work towards. Recitals will be live, but include recorded submissions for people who have a scheduling conflict.

Reeds 101 classes happen sporadically throughout the year when 2 or more people want to learn how to fix reeds and make them work better. Email Jenny if you are interested. Video in the works.

Assignments are given at each lesson to be practiced over the course of the next week. Recommended practice times are: 20 minutes a day 5 days a week for beginners, 30 minutes a day 5-6 days a week for intermediate level players, and 30+ minutes a day 6 days a week for advanced players.

Emails are the best way to get information or ask complicated questions--I try to be prompt and thorough in replying!
