Mark DeMio

Assistant Professor

Mark DeMio  received undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music. He  performs frequently with the Cleveland Orchestra including tours and recordings on both bassoon and contrabassoon. Among the other groups he performs with are Kent Sate University's Black Squirrel Winds, Akron Symphony, Erie Philharmonic, Youngstown Symphony, Trinity Cathedral Chamber Orchestra and Trinity Chamber Players, Blue Water Chamber Orchestra, Cleveland Chamber Symphony and Cleveland Pops.  Mr. DeMio balances a busy performance and teaching freelance lifestyle. He is on the  faculty at the Cleveland Institute of Music Preparatory, Baldwin-Wallace University Conservatory Preparatory, and the Music School Settlement, helping younger bassoon students get off to the right start and prepare their way to a fun, musical life. As a native of Cleveland, Ohio, Mark DeMio took the opportunity to study extensively with the fine bassoonists of the Cleveland Orchestra; Principal George Goslee, Assistant Principal Ronald Phillips, Second Bassoonist Phillip Austin and Contrabassoonist Stanley Maret. Thus he continues the Cleveland style of woodwind artistry in his teaching and performing.

The fine art of reed making is a specialty of Mr. DeMio's, which he began learning in the earliest years of his study with the Cleveland Orchestra  bassoonists, and and subsequently with other great bassoon players.

Mark DeMio especially enjoys time at home with his pianist wife Elizabeth, children Teresa and Vincent, and the rascally dogs.
