Hi! We're Kristen and Rucha, co-founders of LUYP and Virtual Clarinet Academy. We are SO glad you're here!

We founded LUYP in May 2019 as a way to make summer enrichment more accessible to our private studios. Since then, we've helped enthusiastic clarinetists from all over the world take their playing to the next level. We invite you to check out our dedicated VCA website for the most up-to-date info on our Summer Sessions, upcoming events, and how you can work with us. 

Like all Level Up Your Playing programs, Virtual  Clarinet Academy (VCA) is centered around personalized learning. As experienced teachers, we know that no two students have identical needs, and focus on crafting a unique plan for each student that targets their specific, fundamentals-based needs: tone development, embouchure structure, finger technique, and articulation

Being in touch with our community is one of our favorite things! We welcome you to connect with us on Facebook or Instagram, or sign up for our bi-weekly newsletter below to have clarinet awesomeness delivered straight to your inbox.
