Hi there! 👋 

I'm Ixi.

I'm an orchestral clarinetist with a deep love of teaching, connecting and empowering people to their musical and artistic calling 💕 

Besides my work at the Cincinnati Symphony, I delight in teaching at the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. I take so much joy also in expanding the vision of all musicians here at DCA and over at Music360.  It's my desire to create a digital space that could give clarinetists access to world-class resources and support with only one requirement––the internet!  

I know that improvement is possible with a solid plan, support & a good box of reeds. One of my favorite saying is, the learning is in the doing. You learn by trying, by doing, by taking ACTION. No waiting for miraculous change - let's get to work!

I'm here to help

Hi there! 👋 

We're Tiffany & Ixi.

We officially met via email in 2019 through a mutual student that said we "had to meet". That was true. 💕 

We bonded over our love of the clarinet, Canva, notebooks and our strong desire to create a digital space that could give clarinetists access to world-class resources and support with only one requirement––the internet!  

We want to help you learn and grow. Improvement is possible with a solid plan, support & a good box of reeds. We always say, the learning is in the doing. You learn by trying, by doing, by taking ACTION. No waiting for miraculous change - let's get to work!

HOW WE CAN HELP

We're here to support your work as clarinetists, musicians & humans.
