Lauren Hepburn, clarinet and saxophone
Teaching Artist Statement
Teaching is what I love to do. Guiding students through the process of learning an instrument and helping them see their potential is immensely gratifying. I like to follow student interests in combination with reinforcements of good technique and musicality.
I have a BA in Music Education from Central Washington University as well as an MA in Music Education from the University of Washington. I have taught middle school band and orchestra at Broadview-Thompson K-8, and then at Whitman Middle School in Seattle. I have also taught Music Education classes and band at the University of Washington, and maintained a small saxophone studio while going to school.
Ms. Hepburn performs in the area as a freelance clarinet and saxophone player. She regularly plays with the Washington Wind Symphony and the Seattle Rock Orchestra. While playing with the CWU Wind Ensemble and the Seattle Wind Symphony she has had to opportunity to perform at Benaroya Hall.
