The personal approach in my lessons ensures that each lesson is tailored to your individual needs, ambitions and goals.


You play the music you prefer. From classical music, chamber music, folk, klezmer to contemporary classical and popular. Of course it is my passion to introduce unknown composers to you!

Hidden Treasures

In addition to well-known composers such as Mozart, Molter, Telemann and Stamitz, there are also lesser-known gems of classical music to discover! Enjoy the brilliance of concertos and chamber music pieces by unknown composers such as A. Cartellieri, L. Kozeluch, P. Winter, T. Schact.

About Me

I am Elia Celegato, born in Padua, Italy. My musical journey began at the Conservatorio of Padua "Cesare Pollini" under the mentorship of Stefano Righetto and Luca Lucchetta. After my education in Italia, I went to study in the Netherlands and obtained a master's degree in Historical Clarinet at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague under the guidance of Eric Hoeprich.
In 2023, I completed my master's degree in "Musicology: Recherche et Pratiques d'Ensemble" at the University of Poitiers/Tours in collaboration with the Orchestra of the Abbaye aux Dames in Saintes, France.
My interpretations of classical and romantic works, using original historical instruments, do not go unnoticed. I regularly work as principal clarinetist and substitute for the Harmoniemusik of the Das Neue Mannheimer Orchestra. My contributions to the recording industry include the premiere recording of JC Bach's opera aria, released by Etcetera Records.

I find Elia an excellent clarinet teacher!

As a beginner on the clarinet I started lessons with Elia 3 months ago. Elia is very enthusiastic and professional in his approach and his passion for music is clearly evident. During the lessons he shows plenty of patience and is very encouraging, giving positive advice on technique and musical interpretation. In addition I am pleased that he identified and fixed some technical problems with my clarinet. I find Elia an excellent clarinet teacher and can recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.
