Ricardo's Reviews

  • "This program is absolutely fantastic! The fact that I can review videos on subjects like: fundamentals, etudes, solos, orchestral repertoire, audition prep, etc. at any time is like having a huge encyclopedia of knowledge from the master at my disposal 24/7. Then add to it that I can submit a video at any time (i.e. when I’ve had the time to fully prepare) and receive feedback is phenomenal."Fabian
  • "It is such a privilege to be exposed to Ricardo's ideas and expertise. He has so much experience in the industry and I am so excited to watch his videos and pick his brain." Goldmandn
  • "Ricardo is one of the greatest clarinet teacher because he clearly knows how to explain things verbally and demonstrates it exactly as he wants. One of the greatest thing about working with him is listening to him play because it's just the best clarinet playing you are ever going to hear."Andy Cho
