Meet Chang Dae Yoo: Cantabile’s Clarinet Teacher

1. What made you want to teach music?

Because I love to share what I know with others and want those others to

feel the joy and love that revolves around music. As much as I value

knowledge and growth – I like to learn alongside my students, and empower

them to learn also.

2. What do you love most about your instrument (clarinet)?

The beautiful look and design of the instrument drew my first attention

also the variety of characteristic this instrument possesses. The simplistic

but amazingly pure and beautiful tone this special instrument can produce

touches the deepest emotions inside.

3. Who is your musical hero?

That will be my past teacher, who shared to me his knowledge and

experience which later became a huge part of my life.

4. What are you most excited about with starting to teach at Cantabile?

I am excited to meet new students and to teach at such a happy and vibrant

environment, where I can share my experience and knowledge.

“(Music) has helped 

me discover and
