I have over 10 years of experience on the Clarinet and other reed instruments. I have a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Music Education from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and have studied classical clarinet as well as saxophone under various professors at the college. I also have experience in teaching NYSSMA solos, intermediate/advanced techniques on the saxophone and clarinet, and have run and directed my own orchestra and jazz band during my time in college. I am also trained in teaching every common band instrument at a beginner level, and can also teach bass guitar/upright bass at a beginner level. I have a reputation for achieving whatever goals I set my sights on musically, from performing to composing and conducting. I am also in touch with the current music education situation in New York City and am a certified teacher in New York State in Music, Grades K-12. I personally believe practicing should be fun, and have devised multiple strategies for success to kick-start one's drive for peak performance in music!

Jorge was a great teacher, he started me off learning clarinet. Very kind, postitve and knew all of his stuff. Would definitely recommend as a teacher.
Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.
