Teaching since:

Patrick is a New York-based clarinetist and educator. Patrick has maintained private studios in Florida, Ohio, Indiana, and New York. His students have received top honors at Solo & Ensemble evaluations and have participated in various honor bands. Additionally, he regularly works with high school band programs where he teaches sectionals and group classes.

As a performer, Patrick has appeared in recitals throughout the United States and Europe. As a soloist, Patrick has appeared with the University of Florida Wind Symphony and twice with the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Philharmonia. An avid chamber musician, Patrick performed regularly with his woodwind quintet, Ensemble HCV, throughout the Cincinnati area. His quintet was a national finalist at the 2013 Music Teacher’s National Association chamber music competition. In addition to solo and chamber music performances, Patrick is an ardent orchestral performer. He has appeared with groups such as the Richmond (IN) Symphony, the Kentucky Symphony, the Brooklyn Wind Symphony, and the New York Pops. He also spent the summer of 2018 in the orchestra for Leonard's Bernstein's Peter Pan as a part of the Bard College Summerscape series.

I welcome students of all ages ability levels! I have taught students from age 10 to 64, from beginners to advanced players.
