Welcome! My goal is to offer students a clarinet lesson course which builds short- and long-term plans for improvement, a life-long appreciation for music, as well as patience and a work ethic that will be as valuable in music as it is in all other aspects of life. I believe that a weekly lesson is only a starting point for anyone seeking improvement in the musical craft, which is why I am building my approach to make myself accessible daily to guide and streamline the learning process. My instruction always keeps the focus on the excitement of music-making, while also placing a strong emphasis on fundamentals, which equip the student to approach and tackle their favorite styles of music.

About Tiberiu B.

Hello! I am an active teacher and performer, and specialize in solo, chamber, orchestral, and other ensemble repertoire.

Every lesson that I teach is tailored specifically to each of my students' needs, focusing on areas of playing that need improvement and music that inspires rather than trying to check off a series of checkpoints in a generic lesson plan. I believe that it's so important to have exciting lessons that my students can look forward to, such that every meeting leaves the student feeling that they have taken a meaningful step in their journey of discovery and improvement. As my student, you will receive assignments that build up a strong base of fundamental techniques, we will build a toolset that allows you to approach the music you'd like to perform, and also have fun with learning to read and play the music that YOU love!

I am currently the principal clarinetist in the Firelands Symphony Orchestra, and have also performed frequently with the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra and the Cleveland POPS Orchestra. Additionally, I am an avid chamber musician, currently playing with the Cleveland Wind Trio and the Philharmonia da Camera, and having joined the North Coast Winds for their 2018-2019 season.

I hold a bachelor's degree from the Oberlin Conservatory, where I studied under Richard Hawkins, and a master's degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where I was under the tutelage of Franklin Cohen. As my student, you will be receiving the practical and stylistic approaches passed down to me by these wonderful teachers!

Ihave the privilege and pleasure of having Tiberiu Baicoianu as my clarinet teacher. As a performing member of the Cleveland Women’s Orchestra, a semi-professional orchestra I am in, it was important to me that I find a teacher whom I felt would challenge me and help increase my skills. Within 5 minutes of my first lesson, Tiberiu was able to identify several areas for me to work on. Within several months my sound developed more fully. In my lessons we look at etudes, and he is able to help me dissect the etude to see patterns and to understand how to play more musically. I feel so excited to play! Each week I feel enormous enthusiasm because Tiberiu inspires me to play better. He pushes me, and yet, he is also able to offer support and guidance so that I feel challenged, but not overwhelmed. Tiberiu spends time really studying how I am playing and offers ways to improve my technique. I was amazed when he asked me to send him recordings and questions during the week between lessons so that he could offer guidance. He is very dedicated to his work and truly wants to help his students become the best player they can be. I highly recommend Tiberiu to any person who wants to improve their skills and to learn from an outstanding teacher and musician.
