Private Clarinet Teacher

I love to teach students of any level from beginner to advanced. If you are a beginner, in the first few lessons you will learn how to put the clarinet together, how to put the reed on the mouthpiece, and be able to play a simple melody. I like to use the Klose Method book, and simple solos including music from film scores like Star Wars. Advanced players can work on clarinet technique and repertoire including orchestral excerpts and major solo literature. I look forward to meeting you!

About William

Whether your ambitions are modest, you want a career in music, or somewhere in between,

I studied clarinet with William Rappaport when I was a graduate
student in music education at Georgia State University. He may be the
most deeply musical person I have ever known. My sense was that,
though he was a performer of the absolute highest caliber, he was
equally passionate about teaching.
When I initially contacted Bill to schedule lessons, I explained that
I was visually impaired. I wanted to share this information with him
upfront in the event that he had questions or concerns about teaching
me. I remember him saying clearly, “I am aware of the possibilities.”
That was all I needed to hear to feel comfortable entering his studio.
Bill encouraged me to take on any challenge in the clarinet
literature that interested me. He used every possible metaphor he
could think of to communicate ideas that were more easily accessed if
you could simply look at the printed page. He was always warm and
friendly, but focused, never wasting one second of our time together.
Following my work with Bill, I attended The University of Michigan
where, though I was a music education doctoral student, I was
instantly welcomed into one of the clarinet studios. Bill’s creative
work with me played an enormous role in making that happen. Now, I am
a community college professor, teaching a variety of classes including
a studio class for instrumental music students. I often find myself
using the same examples Bill employed with me to help my current
students. I am profoundly grateful for his unyielding commitment to my
growth when I was a student of his.

I’ve played clarinet for over 30 years, and was a clarinet major in college. I started studying with Mr. Rappaport after I was out of college for several years and had moved to Atlanta, where Mr. Rappaport was playing in the Atlanta Symphony. I found him to be the best teacher I had ever studied with. His ability to help me understand the musical phrase, no matter what style of music I was working on, was amazing. I studied standard clarinet etudes, orchestral literature, and clarinet solo repertoire with Mr. Rappaport. He had the same mild, yet persistent approach with me on everything we worked on – always working to get me to play it to the best of my ability.
One thing I had always feared having to play some day was the opening solo to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. A former teacher had been unable to help me with it. So, when a band I was playing with scheduled the piece and told me to get ready to play the solo, I was traumatized and contacted Mr. Rappaport for help. He worked with me and not only got me playing the opening glissando, but helped me to have a better understanding of the other jazzy spots in the piece. So now I can say I’ve performed that piece about 20 times, and the fear is gone! Thanks, Mr. Rappaport!
Regardless of your level of playing, I think you will find Mr. Rappaport to be an outstanding teacher!
Kim
Mr. Rappaport was my clarinet professor and mentor in college and has continued to be an inspiration to me both as a teacher and as one of the finest clarinetist I know, both in the classical realm and in the jazz and swing styles.

Anyone who has ever heard me play has always complimented me on my clarinet tone. I can honestly say that my clarinet tone is the direct result of Mr. Rappaport's methods and his gentle but very stringent guidelines. If you are looking for someone to take you or your child to the highest standard of musicianship, look no further. I highly recommend lessons with Mr. Rappaport. Kim C.

As a private instructor, I genuinely encourage efficient practice, solid technique and good tone quality, as well as an appreciation for music. I also incorporate the study of music theory and the study of music fundamentals in my lessons. I have experience teaching the genres of classical, jazz, modern, folk, and pop music and hope to extend the joy of learning music to my students as well as help them grow and gain confidence in order to bring on-going fulfillment to their musical experience.

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.

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 t

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.

Our son Charles started taking lessons with Alex Sadnik when he was in 6th grade, and he is now going to be a senior in high school. It was in -home until the pandemic last year. After changing to him, Charles made tremendous progress quickly. Alex is a terrific teacher. He has patience , and is encouraging. He would often spend part of the lesson playing together with him, which was helpful. He would also allow Charles to choose some of the music he was interested in learning.
We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants to learn Saxophone or flute . You won’t be disappointed!!
Naomi
Thank you Alex for being such a great teacher, musician and mentor. My son has enjoyed playing and learning saxophone under your guidance for the past five years.
We are happy that the transition from in person to online lessons has been seamless. We find it helpful that you review his prerecorded music/practice clips ahead of time so that lessons are spent giving feedback on what is most important. We appreciate the extra effort and thought you put into planning each lesson as well as your customized worksheets. We value your professionalism, commitment, positivity and encouragement in his musical journey.

"When we were searching for the right clarinet teacher, it was important to find not just a teacher, but a professional musician. Bill was the right guy for the job.

My daughter Lili had been playing for four years and Bill stepped in with techniques that really took her musicianship to the next level. He is patient, organized and, per Lili, "A dope dude."

Bill has helped Lili with music that she is working on for marching and concert band at school while creating customized warm ups specifically for her. During the pandemic he has been flexible with his schedule, generous with his time and has kept Lili motivated in her music and on track while her school bands have had a hard time playing together.

He is a pro who is communicative, responsive, and punctual for all of the lessons.

I highly recommend Bill as a teacher. He and his band put on a pretty good show as well!"
