About Lisa


My name is Lisa Canning. Thanks so much for stopping by! I am a firm believer that artists are here on this earth to make a difference in the lives of others. One of the ways I make a difference is by helping clarinetists find their voice on the right instrument.

My goal is to help you make a big difference with your gifts and your creative passions with the clarinet. I look forward to working with you. Stay awhile and look around.

Experience The Difference

I have been in the business of hand selecting Bb’s, A’s, Eb’s, C’s, D’s, Alto and Bass Clarinets since I was 17 years old! That means I have been helping clarinetists of all ages and skill levels for 41 years now!

How time flies when you’re having fun. (I can hardly believe it, really.)There isn’t a brand, make or model I have not sold. I am familiar with everything on the market and the instruments we sell are chosen because they meet the vast majority of musical aspirations and needs at all levels of ability.

Lisas Clarinet ShopWhy Buffet-Crampon and SeriO Clarinets I sell Buffet- Crampon and SeriO instruments because I have found that they offer the flexibility and agility to make music at any level and equally have mechanical integrity. SeriO is my own line of instruments that are affordable professional instruments. Many expensive clarinets in the market these days are lacking in mechanical integrity making them not nearly as reliable either of the brands we sell.

How do I know if it’s time to get a new clarinet? Upgrading your instrument, and knowing when you need to, is an important step to improving your playing. Here is how you know it’s time.

Meet The Family

Meet my sweet girl, Fiona. She is so full of love and joy.  Do you want to know why? Because she loves reading the Entrepreneur The Arts Blog and it shows! You will find over 5000 articles about the arts and entrepreneurship there. (Now if you believe that my sweet dog can read, then you must really be super cool.)

But whatever you do: DARE TO DREAM.  Believe in YOU. Pursue Your Passions. Don’t ever give up on you!

If you do the music inside of you will soar to new heights. Especially with the perfect new clarinet. One that is perfectly right for every ounce of uniquely you. That’s what I do. I match instruments to people, and career paths to musicians. We all come in different shapes and sizes and our musical ideas about how we can make a difference in this world are all different too. Isn’t that cool? Just think what we can do with a few more tools…
