Dr. Ariana is a fantastic teacher! She is patient, kind and encouraging. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to help me whenever I have questions. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their teacher!!!!

I am very much a beginner. Ariana helped me with the fundamentals of mouth shape, breathing and air management, and the tongue/reed relationship. Most of all, Ariana helped me overcome my self consciousness in playing the clarinet with such an accomplished musician. She was fun, gracious and positive even with my rudimentary skills.

Dr. Ariana was a fantastic teacher. She makes learning fun by tailoring music choices to the student. She's also an outstanding communicator and educator who is able to make everything seems easier and more fun. Highly recommended.
