The Get SeriO® Team

My name is Lisa Canning. I am the founder of Lisa’s Clarinet Shop and the designer of SeriO® clarinets. I am a professional clarinetist, a graduate of Northwestern University and a student of Robert Marcellus, Gregory Smith, Russ Dagon, Larry Combs, Frank Kowalsky, Gwenyth Moon and Bob Essock.  I have sold clarinets professionally since the age of 17 which is, now, almost for 40 years. My clients have been professional musicians, orchestral musicians, military musicians, university teachers, high school private lesson teachers, and their students. I have sold almost every major brand of the clarinet in the marketplace but choose to sell only Buffet-Crampon and now our own line, SeriO®.

The team that helped me design and refine these instruments includes:

Jerry Weimer a wonderful clarinetist from NYC who moved to Santa Fe to study with jazz legend Eddie Daniels and never left. Eddie introduced me to Jerry, and it’s been so easy for us to work together. Jerry has really great ears!

Bruce Marking who has almost 40 years of experience as a professional craftsman. He spent 15 working at Buffet-Crampon as their Chief Woodwind Repair Technician and 3.5 working for Lisa’s Clarinet Shop helping us make improvements to the instrument line.

Robert Kildow who was a student under Bruce Marking and who now works in our Downers Grove location. Rob has been helpful in continuing to observe what can be improved in the instruments.
