Get to know Cynthia Tag

I have been teaching clarinet, saxophone, flute and piano full time since 1994.

I have 3 music degrees, BFA's in clarinet performance and music education from Carnegie-Mellon University and a Master of Music in Jazz Studies and woodwinds from University of Tennessee under the tutelage of famed jazz educator, Jerry Coker.

And I have been performing all styles of music, ranging from classical to jazz to salsa to blues for many years.

All that being said, I really just love teaching and thoroughly enjoy the progress of all students at all levels!
