De Klarinetschool Arnhem is the teaching practice of Tui Clark.
Tui teaches the clarinet in Arnhem to adults and children from age 6 years. She has a special small clarinet for young children.
Tui can also teach the saxophone and the piano up to intermediate level.
The klarinetschool cooperates within the Nieuwe Arnhemse Muziekschool, which enables students to participate in all kinds of chamber music and provides regular performance opportunities.
She has over 20 years experience teaching clarinet, saxophone, piano and chamber music. She has taught privately, at many schools in New Zealand and the UK, as well as at New Zealand School of Music's Young Musicians Programmes.
She is now based in Arnhem, Netherlands, where she runs a small private studio and teaches at the Arnhem International School. She recently completed a Masters of Music Education at the Royal Conservatoire in Den Haag, where she researched new methods of teaching expressive phrasing using free improvisation and movement. She also underwent Dalcroze Eurythmics and Kodaly training as part of the course.
She adapts her teaching style to suit the needs and tastes of each student, while ensuring that good technique and musicianship are established. Some students prefer a structured, linear approach, and others flourish with freedom and exploration.
