    Ruben has been teaching my granddaughter clarinet this school year and it’s been a great choice. He is so positive, encouraging and given her so much confidence. Not only is he an excellent teacher, but just a really wonderful person. Thanks Ruben.

    Having to do our lessons over zoom Rubin has demonstrated that he has great teaching skills he is very patient and he explains things quite thoroughly. We are very happy with our experience with him.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The most important thing is that we are doing in lessons what the student wants.  I am very interested in the personal goals that my students have, whether to win a college music scholarship, or possibly audition for a higher band.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Bachelor of Music Clarinet Performance, Bachelor of Music Saxophone Performance, Bachelor of Music Education, Western Washington University 1992, 29 years of teaching clarinet/saxophone lessons, piano lessons, as well as public, private, homeschool and community bands.  I teach classical and jazz all levels.  My students have won $536,000.00 in college music scholarships.  I love teaching and i love people!!!!  Seeing people achieve their dreams is why I teach!!!
