Great teacher

I had been teaching myself how to play guitar for a few years and felt like I was not making any progress, so I decided to take some lessons. I feel very fortunate that I was able to find Chuck and work with him.

Chuck is a very talented musician and teacher. He communicates and explains musical concepts in a way that's easy to understand. Lessons were challenging, but in a good way, and Chuck is always friendly and supportive. He gave me great recommendations for what to work on in practice and always had listening suggestions that reinforced what we were working on.

I wish that I had started taking lessons with him sooner, because I learned and improved more as a musician and guitarist in 2 months of lessons with Chuck than in the 2-3 years I had been teaching myself how to play. I can't recommend him enough, especially for beginners or someone who needs a little help to take the next step in their musical journey.

Joe's strong music background and experience make him a good teacher. I'm positive that he would be excellent with a beginner. I only needed a refresher in knowledge and he has helped me a great deal. I would strongly recommend him for future students

I've been a quality assurance engineer for over thirty years. how does this apply? well, I've learned all the 'degrees' of good and bad in manufacturing which inherently includes people and their skills. Carl is an excellent teacher because he has all the characteristics that go into the making of a good product--or, in this case, teaching. I know that I'll get the most for my money when working with Carl because he is that good. that's why I've decided to open end my lesson plan with him. I know he'll teach me a lot and, for me, that's what it's all about.

I was in a jazz trio with Carl several years ago and he was a joy to perform music with. He's an all around great musician, and rises above the expectations of a typical horn player. His experience with several instruments, music theory, and his extensive performance history all contribute to his expertise. Not to mention, all the awards and videos speak for themselves.

Carl is a great teacher

I have been taking lessons from Carl for three months and he helps me understand and improve my playing immensely. Beginning with fingering, breath, equipment up to theory. Carl is very positive, encouraging and friendly. Even though I am a beginner I never feel like he is bored teaching me. I know he can teach very high level players too. I highly recommend Carl.,

Beginner to Advanced students who are at least 10 years old.

About Diane

My journey in music began when I was around 5 years old and first heard the children's choir sing in church. My mother used to tell me that I would beg her to let me sing in the choir but she would always have to tell me I wasn't old enough. As soon as I was old enough, she enrolled me in church choir and I've been in it ever since.

I have performed with the Rochester symphony orchestra and chorale, Rochester community band, Rochester civic music, church choirs and orchestras, Lake of the Isles community band, and performed Handel's Messiah at Carnegie hall in New York City. I've done some acting and singing in musicals as well.

As I got older, I discovered playing the clarinet was fun but never gave up singing. I just did them both. After ...

Diane was an excellent instructor and I enjoyed her professionalism and patience with my daughter. unfortunately my daughter became dis- interested due to a need for " a personal touch" that only in home or studio practices could provide.

I've known Christian for a few years. We went to school together and have done a decent amount of playing together. He's very professional, talented, and knows what he's doing. Hes a top rated teacher and player. Anyone studying with him will learn a lot from him. Very highly recommended.

My 11 year-old son is taking beginner tuba lessons with Christian. He was getting very frustrated in band but even after just a few lessons has improved significantly and is much more confident during band practice. Christian has shown a lot of patience with him and encourages him to progress rather than hang out and play what he is already comfortable with.

And as a mom, I LOVE Skype lessons. I was a little worried that the lack of 'hands-on' could be an issue but it is not at all. We started with just 5 lessons, but I anticipate many more:)

I had my first lesson on Saturday the 13th, I was in a lot of doubt about taking lessons on line. I was not setup for it all the way my lab top was not putting out no sound. I was saying to myself here we go half of my lesson spent on fixing mechanical problems, but that was not the case. Christian figured it out with no problem and before you knew it I was into my first lesson. Christian was great we went over some different things and I was playing again. It felt really good to be playing notes with someone there to critique your performance good or bad. My goa is to get better each week. Thanks Christain

What an amazing instructor! Before we started lessons with Zoe my 6th grader wanted to throw in the towel. She was frustrated and ready to quit. Only one lesson into it and she has improved drastically. Zoe's technique is amazing, she has so much patience and is so knowledgeable that is impressive. Thank you for helping my daughter improve so much in such little time. Money super well spent!

About Clarinet

The clarinet is a popular woodwind instrument found in classical music, orchestras, concert wind bands and many big band jazz groups. The best way to learn how to play is to take clarinet lessons. There are many varieties of the clarinet, and one effective way of selecting your clarinet is to first know the differences between the four different types: soprano clarinet, alto clarinet and bass clarinet. From here, you can choose what kind you would want to play and devote your time to studying with an instructor who can help you achieve success. If you are a beginner, clarinet teachers will focus on the fundamentals of proper breathing, tonal quality, timing as well as various techniques used in playing clarinet. They will also teach you how to read clarinet music and help you decide what ...
