My name is Aneka and my 10 year old son Caleb is a recent student of Rodrigo. Caleb only started playing the clarinet in May 2014. He has made tremendous strides in such a short time. Rodrigo is a very patient, encouraging, and supportive teacher. Caleb is already able to identify and play several notes and some songs. It has made him very confident about his playing. I am pleased with our experience and look forward to Caleb continuing lessons with Rodrigo.

great clarinet teacher

Rodrigo has ben my clarinet teacher for a year now. I am an adult learner who started with limited musical background and no prior knowledge of the clarinet. Rodrigo has been a very knowledgeable and dependable guide who has a positive outlook and an easy-going, flexible style. I have great respect for his expertise.
As a teacher myself, I understand the value of an organized approach. His lessons are purposeful and goal-directed. His praise is well-placed and specific, but he does not hesitate to point out areas I need to work on. His "pointing out" most often involves actual examples. I have difficulty transitioning between some fingerings. Rodrigo never tires of showing me how to improve my fingering technique to make it more efficient. Then--and this is important--he listens/watches to make sure I am following through correctly. If not . . . we go through it . . . again. In this manner, he has helped me expand my "comfort zone" with my instrument. He has a wealth of patience.
Try as I might, he doesn't let me get away with much. I have always been a master at avoiding things. This characteristic extends beyond the usual everyday chores to my clarinet practice. My clarinet book contains some pieces that require extra effort for me to work through. It is amazing how often I miss these pieces entirely. Rodrigo never misses them. Over time he must have evolved specific "radar" to identify them. He makes sure I at least give them a good try. Little by little, this helps me improve. He does keep things varied and is quick to make a change--in book or approach--if necessary.
I am pleased with the progress I have made. When I first started, I had no idea the scope of my undertaking. Rodrigo has helped make the journey enjoyable. More often than not, when I leave my lesson, I have a renewed enthusiasm and a desire to try just a bit harder in my next practice.
Rodrigo seems to love what he does--and I would say he does it well. I am fortunate to have him as my teacher.

Catherine W.

Riva, MD

I have taught saxophone in both classroom and private lesson situations throughout during my experience as a Pre-service teacher. I am qualified to start a student on saxophone, even if they have no previous music experience.

About Catherine

Hello! My name is Cat and I am a professional flutist with a degree in both Flute Performance and Music Education. During my work as pre-service band and orchestra teacher, I have taught beginning and intermediate students on most of the standard western classical instruments. On this profile, I have listed the instruments that I am most adept at teaching.

As my student, you will receive well-rounded lessons adapted to your particular needs and learning style. I strive to not only improve my students' technique on their chosen instrument, but also to develop general musicianship skills,
including ear-training and musical literacy.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand, metronome, and tuner. I expect the student to provide their own instrument and music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical flute performance and beginning woodwind and piano instruction.

About Theresa

I am a former instrumental music teacher in the Catholic school system. I have been teaching in some way, shape or form for the past 19 years.

I find Theresa to be almost like a kindred spirit. Not only does she have MUCH knowledge of her artistry but, of course, shares my love for music, children, animals, crafting, sports etc. In addition, she has great patience with me which has enabled me to learn an artistry that I never really thought to be possible. I am VERY pleased with her instruction.
