I used to study with Mr. García-Taborda for 6 years and I learned everything I know from him. He is a really passionate Teacher and more importantly, he teaches based on a very deep knowledge of the instrument and the music. I play now in a professional Orchestra in Colombia and that is because of his teaching.

Jose is one of the best teacher that you'll ever meet.
If you need a mentor that give you the answers to all your questions about the correct way to play the Clarinet, I think that he is the right person.
He is an excellent person and a great artist, has an incredible musical sensitivity.

I can say without a doubt José is one of the best clarinet teachers I have encountered. He can identify the specific issues that are holding a student back and always has new and creative ways of approaching them that provide very effective solutions. José is very knowledgeable of all sorts of repertoire and has often helped me go beyond the literal in interpretation. I've taken a large quantity of lessons with him over the last six years or so, and regardless of whether I was in high school or preparing a recital for college, each lesson ends in feeling I went a step forward, understood something more, and have more tools to keep improving my playing.
