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.

I'm a professional saxophonist/ composer trained both in performance and pedagogy with 5 years experience teaching

I owe everything to teachers that inspired me when I was young. There is nothing like the feeling of doing the same for someone else! I love to pass on what I know, and to learn from my student's unique viewpoints and experiences.

Matt Burkett is a great music instructor. My son has been his student for about 2 years already . Matt helped my son improve his sound, his low notes, and sight reading. But most importantly he motivates my son to practice more and have fun playing his saxophone.
Highly recommend.
Chad
I've been playing the saxophone for 10 years, and I have never sounded as good or felt as confident since taking lessons with Matt. Matt plans lessons around achieving my goals as a musician, specifically improving my improvisation. Matt explains ideas I have struggled to comprehend in a way that makes me feel like I could have discovered these musical ideas myself. We work on everything from fundamentals, sound, technique, and theory, and Matt provides fun exercises that allow me to put ideas into practice. Contemplating concepts like voice leading, chord progressions, and substitutions have given me a plethora of material to keep me busy, and makes me excited to pick up the saxophone and continue working on my musical journey. I highly recommend lessons with Matt for any level player.

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!

"The lesson was for my grandson who is 13. It is difficult for him to focus, but he seemed to follow Randall for the entire lesson. He was introduced to quite a bit of information. This next week will provide information on what he is able to retain. For my part, I was pleased with the bits of musical history that Randall imparted, so I am receiving benefit from listening in."

"When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him."
