The clarinet is often referred to as the most challenging woodwind instrument. So, in lessons, we'll be sure to cover all the basics of tone production, breath support, musicality, and technique to ensure a solid foundation to build upon. I tend to teach these concepts through the use of various exercises and etude/method and duet books which are important for musical development and also fun!

Bill was very patient and encouraging to my high school daughter who wanted to start learning how to play jazz on her clarinet. She really enjoyed the lessons and the material. She is looking forward to continuing her lessons with Bill once the Marching band season ends.

Bill is a wonderful saxophone and clarinet teacher for my two sons. He's currently working with my older son to prepare for a clarinet audition. The process of preparing for the audition showed me some important qualities about Bill: 1) he goes above and beyond for his students (e.g. he recorded my son's solo piece in various tempos to help with practice); 2) he's flexible in making time for his students based on their needs; and 3) he's supportive and likable. My younger son, who took 4 saxophone lessons from Bill, mentioned Bill as one of the reasons for picking the instrument for band next year. I highly recommend Bill.
Mark W.
When we were searching for the right clarinet teacher, it was important to find not just a teacher, but a professional musician. Bill was the right guy for the job.

My daughter Lili had been playing for four years and Bill stepped in with techniques that really took her musicianship to the next level. He is patient, organized and, per Lili, "A dope dude."

Bill has helped Lili with music that she is working on for marching and concert band at school while creating customized warm ups specifically for her. During the pandemic he has been flexible with his schedule, generous with his time and has kept Lili motivated in her music and on track while her school bands have had a hard time playing together.

He is a pro who is communicative, responsive, and punctual for all of the lessons.

I highly recommend Bill as a teacher. He and his band put on a pretty good show as well!

What are three things you enjoy about your playing and what are three things you wish were improved? I ask this question of each student so we can customize YOUR lessons and practice sessions. I love to see my students grow and learn what fuels their passion for music and we will develop exercises and songs that fit your interests. With ten years of teaching experience and multiple students in honor groups, I stand by studio's results!

Our son Charles started taking lessons with Alex Sadnik when he was in 6th grade, and he is now going to be a senior in high school. It was in -home until the pandemic last year. After changing to him, Charles made tremendous progress quickly. Alex is a terrific teacher. He has patience , and is encouraging. He would often spend part of the lesson playing together with him, which was helpful. He would also allow Charles to choose some of the music he was interested in learning.
We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants to learn Saxophone or flute . You won’t be disappointed!!
Naomi
Thank you Alex for being such a great teacher, musician and mentor. My son has enjoyed playing and learning saxophone under your guidance for the past five years.
We are happy that the transition from in person to online lessons has been seamless. We find it helpful that you review his prerecorded music/practice clips ahead of time so that lessons are spent giving feedback on what is most important. We appreciate the extra effort and thought you put into planning each lesson as well as your customized worksheets. We value your professionalism, commitment, positivity and encouragement in his musical journey.

Welcome! My goal is to offer students a clarinet lesson course which builds short- and long-term plans for improvement, a life-long appreciation for music, as well as patience and a work ethic that will be as valuable in music as it is in all other aspects of life. I believe that a weekly lesson is only a starting point for anyone seeking improvement in the musical craft, which is why I am building my approach to make myself accessible daily to guide and streamline the learning process. My instruction always keeps the focus on the excitement of music-making, while also placing a strong emphasis on fundamentals, which equip the student to approach and tackle their favorite styles of music.

Ihave the privilege and pleasure of having Tiberiu Baicoianu as my clarinet teacher. As a performing member of the Cleveland Women’s Orchestra, a semi-professional orchestra I am in, it was important to me that I find a teacher whom I felt would challenge me and help increase my skills. Within 5 minutes of my first lesson, Tiberiu was able to identify several areas for me to work on. Within several months my sound developed more fully. In my lessons we look at etudes, and he is able to help me dissect the etude to see patterns and to understand how to play more musically. I feel so excited to play! Each week I feel enormous enthusiasm because Tiberiu inspires me to play better. He pushes me, and yet, he is also able to offer support and guidance so that I feel challenged, but not overwhelmed. Tiberiu spends time really studying how I am playing and offers ways to improve my technique. I was amazed when he asked me to send him recordings and questions during the week between lessons so that he could offer guidance. He is very dedicated to his work and truly wants to help his students become the best player they can be. I highly recommend Tiberiu to any person who wants to improve their skills and to learn from an outstanding teacher and musician.

I can help beginner kids become better acquainted with the Bb clarinet and help them get used to playing a wind instrument for the first time. I can work with beginners on articulation, fingerings, embouchure, breath support, and demonstrate proper cleaning for the instrument and the names of the parts. I'll also work on beginner music with them from method books to help them get used to reading Bb Clarinet music.

My daughter learned more from Joseph than her other bassoon teachers. He was reasonable and ensured that she was learning bassoon technique, not just songs. I truly appreciated his dedication to her learning and passion for the bassoon.

My son has been studying with Mr Thomas for 5 years! He is a very talented musician/teacher and I’ve seen such progress in my sons playing over the years. He has helped him write his own pieces and prepped him for his orchestra performances. “Mr. Thomas is really fun to play music with and you learn a lot. He even helped me with transcribing a video game soundtrack that I loved into my recital piece”! We highly recommend Mr. Thomas!
Eunice
My son took clarinet lessons in-person and then transitioned to online when COVID happened. He tried piano and violin before but clarinet is the first instrument that Micah was super excited about. He learned and improved so much with the one on one instruction with Thomas. He says clarinet is his passion now and looks forward to every lesson. I recommend Thomas to teach your child. He is patient, kind and can find ways to motivate kids to play at their best.
Elizabeth Fryer
As a group Clarinet and Flute teacher with Youth Orchestra of St. Luke's, Thomas Giles created an engaging and inspiring music learning curriculum for his students. At each recital all of his students were able to introduce themselves, the piece they have learned, and a bit of history or commentary to go along. Throughout online learning Dr. Giles continued a supportive and creative environment, even through zoom, where each of his students composed and performed their own piece. If you are looking for your student to come away from lessons with a high level of ability and confidence on their instrument look no further than Dr. Giles, they will have the added bonus of learning important skills such as public speaking and presenting. They may even take away some composition and arranging skills!

I have played clarinet from the time I was a child in 6th grade. I played in concert band as well as marching band. One of my best memories of playing in high school was when our band played in the Orange Bowl Parade.

I teach all levels of clarinet. I use several different books including the rubank books, and a few just for clarinet. I also have many solo fun and classical books for students to use.

Heather is a great teacher; she is able to gauge ability and keeps the lessons varied and interesting, always pushing you just at the edge, beyond what you thought you were capable of. Friendly, amiable, and laidback in style, she makes learning in a comfortable atmosphere fun. You can tell she has a real passion for music and teaching, and results after just a few lessons proves she knows what she is doing.

I am a beginning singer, my only prior experience was singing with the congregation in church, not the choir.
Quinn
She's really nice, and makes warm-ups before starting the lesson for your voice range. The variety of songs you can sing is pretty big, you want to sing in Italian? There's plenty! Want to sing in Latin? I'm pretty sure there's a few! There are songs from various musicals, too. All in all, she's a pretty great teacher.

"After more than fifty years of not touching a clarinet since high school band, one pursuit in retirement was to perform better than my mediocre past. My instruction from Carter has given me tools to achieve my goals with specific insights as to posture, embouchure position, tongue/oral cavity form, fingering, interpretation and more. I always received functional answers to my many questions."
