Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

Maureen is patient, always willing to answer questions and encouraging. She makes you want to try harder!

My first lesson with Schroeder was a marvelous experience. Amazing enthusiasm he brings to the table. I recommend him to anyone who is beginning or is seeking to move up on the instrument. Can't wait for the next lesson.

It is my philosophy that learning and playing an instrument should be an joyful experience, and it is my goal to spark a love of music in all my students. I strive to help my students achieve their musical goals, whether that's learning their first songs on an instrument, landing a spot in an ensemble, or even getting into music school.

I have been an avid saxophone player since I was in middle school. I have much experience leading saxophone sections and jazz bands, as well as coaching private students, and I would love to help you progress on your musical journey.

I have had such a great experience taking clarinet lessons from Elia. She is very good at motivating me to practice in a non-degrading way, and she is always so supportive of my progress and struggles. I find that her explanations are very helpful and easy to understand, which I think is important for any teacher. I feel like I've improved a lot in the short time that I have been working with her, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great teacher!
Patrick
Elle has been very helpful. I am an older student just beginning on the clarinet. Elle took the time to ask what by goal is and my music background. She is very patient and has given me a number of great suggestions to get started. She is always pleasant and positive and I look forward to our sessions.
Abby
I got a perfect score on NYSSMA thanks to the wonderful lessons from Elia! Elia was extremely organized and helped me stay on top of all of the audition requirements. She also gave me tips and exercises for my performance anxiety.

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone is one of the easiest instruments to pick up, but one of the most difficult to refine. I specialize in getting you from that horrible honking noise that makes your family run in terror to a sweet singing melodic tone that has the subtlety of a fine oboe but with the power of a military trumpet.

Saxophone performance isn't interchangeable with clarinet or any other instrument so I'll introduce you to all the things that make saxophone unique: how to form the mouth around the mouthpiece, anchor tonguing for better control, and the different fingerings that make the saxophone one of the most versatile instruments in the world.

About Aaron

I was raised in one of those freaky music families. Dad was a composer/arranger/clarinetist and Mom was an expert flutist. There was a saxophone lying around the house unused so I decided that I would play that. I took the approach many of you are on right now: learning the basics in middle schoo

"Comprehensive, Fun, and Professional

My younger brother and I both have taken lessons through Bill for quite some time now.

Bill has been fantastic, and can accomodate to players of all levels. I've been playing for years, and Bill is able to provide practice materials relevant to my musical interests, appropriately scaling up the difficulty of what we're working on. Ranging from famous straight-ahead jazz solos, to tricky classical etudes, I'm happy to know my overall musical technique, repertoire, and general skill will continue to grow at the pace right for me.

My younger brother is taking some more beginner clarinet lessons, and couldn't agree more. He always looks forward to lesson day, seeing what new notes and scales he'll get to play through!"
