I had a lesson with Sauro about a week before a professional audition I was taking place. Thanks to him, I was able to rethink how I was working on some of the bass clarinet excerpts on the list, especially in regards to some technical and stylistic aspects. A week later, I found out I got the job! I would highly recommend Mr. Berti to anyone in the midst of audition preparation, and I thank him again for helping me achieve a big career goal.
Very nice and honest teacher. Warmly recommended!
