Nancy Williams is an amazing individual to work with. Not only does she put herself into her work 110% but she does it with such grace and joy. She makes anything an enjoyable experience, whether it's rehearsal, a lesson, a coaching, or an excerpts class. I have personally learned how to improve my own playing from her natural ability to teach even in casual situations. She has amazing attention to detail and is always looking to learn while teaching others.”

Performance Artist

Clarinet and Saxophone

Having performed classical clarinet throughout the US, Europe, and Australia, I've also played jazz tenor with The Four Tops and The Temptations.  

I love performing and teaching diverse styles of music!

Educator

Author, Lecturer, Clinician, and Adjudicator

I am an educator at heart and love to speak about empowerment and leadership as well as music! 

Recent lecture topics have included leadership and culture building in band programs, classical improvisation, women composers, styles and topics, and art song for solo voice and clarinet.

My book "Woodwind Improvisatory Techniques of the Classical Era: A Pedagogy Method" was published in November of 2021 and helps teachers, students, and performers learn how to improvise cadenzas, Eingange, and melodic elaborations into their Classical solos.

Composer and Arranger

Original Compositions and Clarinet Choir Arrangements

I'd been arranging for clarinet choirs for years before being commissioned to write an original band piece in 2017. I've since composed for gamelan ensemble, clarinet duet, soprano, and reed quintet.  

Sheet music is available for sale through the Carpe Clarinet Store on this site and/or SheetMusicPlus.com.
