My tailored approach to the individual needs of each student, problem solving of the most difficult issues involved with the clarinet and music combined with years of professional experience abroad are my hallmarks.

I had a fabulous studying experience with Mark. He knew everything about clarinet and explained everything in a clear and understandable way. What impressed me the most is his exquisite approach to the music in different genres and epochs. He will help you to develop your skills and improve your understanding of the music.

Excellent teacher and person. I was his student throughout my university career, a very clear pedagogy with which he takes you to get your maximum abilities to play the clarinet. he knows perfectly the orchestral repertoire and how to interpret the great solos of clarinet, great connoisseur of the solistico repertoire and it takes you to its correct execution according to the time and the style of the works. very focused on their students with the main aspects of execution, sound, articulation and interpretation. 100% recommended.

There are so many colors to the human voice. Unlike most instruments, the human body does not show us what note we are playing or how the air is inhaled in to our stomach. So we end up feeling our way through, using our imagination. This is where the magic happens. In class and outside of it, muscle memory takes its natural course and we begin creating a unique and practical "navigation map" of your voice.
Whether you feel like letting out some steam, working on those high notes or designing your own sound; I am excited to meet you! I have studied (and still studying - learning is endless...) many different techniques and am very committed to sharing what I know with patience and passion.
Lessons are flexible, fun and fit for the students needs.
I take great pride in my students success and can't wait to welcome new ones!

I’m so happy I found Ariella! Truly one of the best teachers I ever worked with. She knows what she is doing and she is a lot of fun!
Alizee L.
I just had my first lesson with Ariella, and I can already tell she loves what she does, and it's truly a blessing to be working with her.
Cathy Sussman
I am thrilled to be working with Ariella Edvy in my quest to learn Hebrew. Her approach of using music and video clips to teach make her lessons fun and relevant. But there are two things that really set her apart -- her art of teaching elocution (she makes you feel it!) and her way of modeling her lessons to each individual's learning style.

When teaching, my ultimate goal is to answer and share what I know in the most simple and efficient way possible. I love hearing: "Dude, no one has explain this to me this way, now it makes total sense to me, thank you".

You can feel comfortable asking me any questions, no matter how simple or "stupid" you may think they are. I am a humble guy who will happily answer all the questions you may have.

In ProTools I will teach you signal flow, audio effects (compressors, EQs, Reverbs, Delays, Chorus, Flangers, etc), SideChain Compression, Automation, Shortcuts that people actually use in the studio, best plugins for different situations, different track types and/or whatever it is that you want to learn.

ProTools is a key software for surviving in this industry. I was forced to learn protools to make a living as a recording engineer; once you understand it, you will love it, no more frustration with their different modes, tools, audiosuite plugs, etc.

About Enrique

I've been in the music industry for more than 10 years, actively performing different hats by being a Guitar Player, Drummer, Teaching Assistant, Live Audio Engineer, Beat Maker, Music Producer and Recording Engineer; this has allowed me to get a wide perspective of this industry and understand wha

"Ahmad brought my playing to a new level in a very short period of time. I had been stuck and not making much progress with my improvisational skills for the better part of a year when I first started lessons with him. I was impressed by his ability to quickly analyze my playing and knowledge and suggest some focus areas. After working on various intervals, I began to feel a magnetic pull in my fingers when playing. The intervals enabled me to make the connection between the licks and lines in my head and the physical fret board on the fly during improvisational sessions.

Ahmad is extremely organized. He has exercises for every topic imaginable. His exercises are clearly written with specifics on how to effectively practice them, and they progress in an incremental and logical fashion. This level of organization allows you to get the most out of your time with Ahmad. He can quickly retrieve exercises for a topic, without having to stop and think, or waste time on transcription.

I leave every lesson with more than enough material to keep me busy. Ahmad has been very flexible working with me and changes that arise in my schedule. On top of all of this, Ahmad is a genuinely pleasant person to spend time with and I really look forward to our time together. For me, I was an intermediate player looking to get to the next step. But I'm confident that Ahmad could accelerate anyone's playing at any level."

"Kathy has worked wonders with my piano lessons. In about a year and half of lessons Kathy has added scales and exercises along with musical selections designed to enhance specific skills, plus has worked with me on select piano works which I find interesting and challenging. My abilities and quality of playing been steadily improving. She is always positive and uplifting yet she still can point out areas of playing quality which require work. She gears lessons and advancement of difficulty to my specific rate of improvement. I couldn't ask for better and and am looking forward to continued progress over time for my improved musicianship."
