Bassoon Headshot Black and White.jpg


Samuel Peters - Former Student

"Playing with me was my bassoon teacher, Andrew Marlin, who played an absolutely stunning bassoon solo, and has put in so much time and dedication into me, and has given me the guidance to be able to get to where I am today. I am so blessed to be able to have studied with him, and grown as a musician under his teaching and help. He is an amazing teacher, and an even better human being. As I continue to grow as a musician, I will always remember how he impacted my life and love for music for the better. Thank you for believing in me."

Kevin Opeña - Former Student

"Andrew is a great teacher who motivates students to be at their best. Whenever I needed help with certain bassoon problems, he was always there to help me. I appreciate the time and effort he spends in each of his students, including myself. From his instruction, Andrew has guided me a clear pathway to find the right school: Northwestern University, Bienen School of Music"

Eric Hwang - Student's Father, Berkley

"You have done a tremendous job in imparting everything we wanted for Berkley to get out of music: reading, rhythm/tempo, a sense of musicality, positivity, patience, problem solving, accountability, and teamwork. We vetted almost a dozen teachers and you were absolutely the best choice we could have made. You are not only a fine musician, you are also a fine person. Teaching Berkley about good character was just as important to us as teaching her music."
