 Clarinet teacher that can't play instrument
Author: BandMom 
Date:   2006-01-07 17:19

My son's clarinet teacher had the tip of his rigth index finger severed and re-attached. We do not know what his prognosis will be, and at best, he cannot play for the next 6 to 8 weeks. My question to you is, have you ever taken lessons from someone who was unable to play their clarinet with you and if so, do you feel you were able to learn from them.

For those of you that teach, do you think you can teach without actually playing along with your students? I hate to think of having to find another teacher for my son because he was very comfortable with the one he has, but he is going to audition for All-State this year at NYSMA and I'm wondering if we should start looking for a new teacher. I'd appreciate your insights into this situation. Also, if you know of any great clarinet teachers on Long Island that would be willing to take on new students let me know, just in case we need to find a new teacher.

Thanks in advance for your advice.
