About Brooks Clarke
Get to know Brooks Clarke
Hello! I am an instructor here at Music and Arts, teaching guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, trumpet, trombone, tuba, and music composition! I have 18 years experience playing and performing music, and have recorded professionally everything from jazz to country with artists such as The Noctambulant and Nick Brennan. In lessons with me, we work together to achieve tangible goals that we will set for you on a week by week basis, and develop plans that work with the type of playing or piece that you are trying to learn. I love learning from my students as much as I love teaching them, so please be encouraged that I am open to any genre or style imaginable to teach you. I have a Bachelors of Music in Composition from Jacksonville University, and I am currently in graduate school at The New England Conservatory of Music. From 2017-2020, I was the Music Director of Saint Johns Classical Academy.
