Russ Becker


Educating, motivating and inspiring students since 1990

Although a busy working musician, Russ Becker has long considered teaching music his most important and rewarding musical endeavor.

Since opening the Russ Becker Woodwind Studio in 1990, Russ has taught hundreds of enthusiastic students to become competent players of their instrument, and guided them towards a deep understanding and appreciation of the art of making music.

Russ is currently taking a sabbatical from his regular full time teaching schedule through the remainder of 2018 to work on some new and demanding projects, but will consider working with serious-minded clarinet students seeking his guidance on an individual, by appointment, basis. Please contact Russ about setting up a lesson.

Students seeking a regularly scheduled weekly lesson are recommended to contact the Community Music School located in Centerbrook, CT* where Russ was a faculty member for many years.  It is a wonderful school with a great faculty of highly qualified professional teachers.
