Welcome to the Home Page of the Clarinet Studio of Kenneth Lee:
Since the 1970's the most active and exciting independent clarinet studio in the Northern Virginia area.
Each year more than 40 aspiring young clarinetists practice, perform and develop their skills, ears and understanding of music in lessons, classes, recitals and competitions.
I've been fortunate to have hundreds of successful students over the years, and am especially proud of the accomplishments of the dozens who now have established their own careers in performing and teaching positions across the country. Many are referred by the exceptional public school Band Directors in and around Fairfax County. Others have heard my students perform numerous times and recommend me to those who seek highly-qualified instruction. I welcome all who would like to become better clarinet players and develop their musical skills and expression.
Most of my students do not aspire to professional music careers, but pursue their studies for the fulfillment and sense of accomplishment that results from focused, purposeful study of a musical instrument through the pre-college years. Almost all of my alumni play the clarinet through their college years, whether or not they major in music. And for most, music will play an important and on-going role in their adult lives.
