My name is Emily Marlow

Welcome to my Clarinet Studio!


I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada and studied clarinet with Stan Fisher at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. I completed training as an educator as well as performer and I graduated with both a Bachelor of Music Education degree and a Bachelor of Music Performance degree. I then furthered my studies at Depaul University in Chicago completing a Master of Music degree, studying with Larry Combs. I also studied with John Bruce Yeh, David McGill and Dale Clevenger.


I am often in Toronto at my post playing clarinet with the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra where I enjoy playing a wide variety of repertoire that often includes the E flat and Bass clarinets. Living in Chicago, I freelance regularly playing all sorts of different venues, ensembles and music. I have performed with local chamber ensembles 5th House Ensemble, Quintet Attacca, C.U.B.E. and MusicNow Chicago Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed with the Chicago Philharmonic, Oregon Symphony, Sarasota Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Civic Orchestra of Chicago, New World Symphony and the Canadian Opera Company. Conductors I have been fortunate to work with include Neeme Järvi, Pierre Boulez, Daniel Barenboim, Bramwell Tovey, Christoph Eschenbach and Osmo Vänskä.


Students Say

"Emily transformed my embouchure in minutes with clear feedback and modeling. My sound improved drastically and she gave me very clear actionable practice techniques to continue to improve on my own. Her studio is lovely and she is a very knowledgeable musician and clarinet player. I really enjoyed learning from her."
