Private Teacher: Zoe Manning

Zoe Manning teaches the timeless art of playing the clarinet at Harmonie Haus on the north side of Indianapolis. Her belief that there is something in music for everyone is evident through her comprehensive Harmonie Haus Clarinet Studio, in which she currently teaches students from ages 9 to 75.

Devoted to teaching music, Mrs. Manning has served on the faculties of IUPUI, IU-Kokomo, Purdue University, Butler University, the Center for the Performing Arts at Broad Ripple High School, and the University of Indianapolis. As a strong advocate for the arts in education, she was co-founder of the Indianapolis Youth Wind Ensemble in 1995.

 As a professional musician, Zoe Manning served as principal clarinetist with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra for eleven years. Her extensive music career as a free-lance musician has included performances with numerous chamber, orchestral, and wind ensembles throughout Indiana. She has also appeared as soloist with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis, Indianapolis Concert Band, and Kokomo Park Band.

A native of Wooster, Ohio, Mrs. Manning feels very fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with some of the nation’s most legendary clarinetists, beginning with George Silfies, and continuing with Alan Squire and Robert Marcellus. Her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Clarinet Performance were earned at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where she studied with Bernard Portnoy. Zoe and her husband, Charles Manning, have two sons, Jonathan and Christopher.
