Clarinet lessons with Amy Advocat in Boston

Unlock your potential in lessons specifically catered for you.

Whether you're just getting started or auditioning for a youth orchestra or conservatory program, I have the tools you need to reach your goals.


We focus on the fundamentals of playing: tone, breathing, embouchure, rhythm, etc. in order to build a solid foundation so that the student can minimize bad habits and maximize their progress. Learn to practice efficiently and soak in new musical knowledge quickly!

My students vary widely in ages, and I'm so proud of what they achieve! They have consistently won chairs at the MMEA Junior and Senior Districts, All-State Band, All-State Orchestra, Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra, and Massachusetts Youth Wind Ensemble!

Amy's Clarinet Studio is located in Jamaica Plain near the Arnold Arboretum and Forest Hills Cemetery.


Students will enjoy learning in a cozy, and welcoming space. Parents are welcome to stay for the lesson or take a stroll in one of the nearby parks!

"Amy is a FABULOUS musician and a SUPERB teacher! I have grown tremendously as a musician under her tutelage. Amy truly knows how to bring the potential out of her students!" - Sabrina, Grade 11


"I set my student clarinet down in the 8th grade. After so many years I was apprehensive starting lessons again as an adult.  Since I was no longer in school I wondered how I could find a private teacher that might have the time and patience to teach me the basics and beyond.  Fortunately I found Amy.  She is an excellent, extremely capable teacher with a comprehensive knowledge of music. Amy is a Master clarinetist.  I feel privileged to be one of her students.  After two years of study with Amy, she pushed me farther than I believed possible.  My technique and the level of difficulty of etudes and pieces I can play have dramatically improved, so much so I have enough confidence playing with an ensemble.  Amy is an inspirational musician.  I give her my highest recommendation!"

-Doug Schuler


"Amy helped our daughter advance from beginner to member of the school band in just 6 months, and she did this while making learning fun and practice sessions enjoyable to listen to!"

-J. Barker


"Thank you so much for being an amazing teacher. My tone and technique have improved so much over the past year, and it is incredible! I cannot thank you enough for making me the player I am today"

-Abigail C, Grade 8


"Thank you SO MUCH for being my teacher this year. You've been an UNBELIEVABLE teacher! You rock and I'm soooo looking forward to next year!"

-Jonathan C, Grade 5
