About Ayslin

500 word

Through a decorated performance career, event planning, and education, clarinetist Ayslin Rice is one of northern California’s most noteworthy professional musicians. With an eye towards premiering new music as well as promoting gender equality within the classical scene, her energetic career has captured the attention of the classical music industry, including from outlets such as Voyage LA.

 

Based in San Francisco, Rice is honored to serve as one of Symphony Napa Valley’s Artists-in-Residence, a distinction she has held since 2017. In addition to performing regularly in the Symphony’s season programming, she serves as educator to young students in preschools across the Bay Area, including Bel-Aire Preschool and Napa Preschool. In the classroom, Rice weaves together literary skills and singing, and instills musical joy in the students through not only short performances, but also tying in musical concepts to themes in books.

 

In her career, Ms. Rice has performed at a wide array of events, including the American and Japanese Bandmasters Associations Conference and an International Trumpet Guild Conference Performance with soloist Thomas Hooten. She has premiered nearly a dozen compositions, performing them in venues ranging from the Bay Area’s premier recital halls to an abandoned factory in Los Angeles. Upcoming events include sharing the stage with Julian Bliss in a masterclass performance, as well as several performances within the San Francisco Conservatory. As an artist conscious of advancing gender equality in classical and new music, her upcoming solo recital in April 2019 will feature a program entirely of female composers.

 

As an artist with a deep love for teaching, Rice is one of the Bay Area’s most active pedagogues.  In her advanced teaching, she cultivates not just tone and technique, but an emphasis on a strong musical foundation, a growth mindset, and empathy and self-care, drawn from her unique personal experiences in high school and college. Her reputation for teaching excellence has led to her current robust private studio of students aged 9-65.

 

Versatile in her artistic contributions, Rice also architects musical experiences behind the scenes. As contractor and musical consultant, Rice has organized numerous pops and community concerts with a skillset ranging from selecting top-flight musicians to tailoring repertoire selection to locating venues. Outside of her musical pursuits, she currently serves in the conservatory’s orchestra library, where she operated as co-manager during the 2017-2018 school year.

 

Originally from Southern California, Ayslin begun her clarinet journey at the age of nine. Currently, she holds a Master of Music diploma from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and a Bachelor of Music diploma from California State University, Long Beach, where she graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors. She is grateful to her current and former pedagogues, Jeff Anderle and Helen Goode-Castro.
