My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

Ms. Rina is by far the best teacher I've ever had. She's very genuine in her work and very kind. She has a deep knowledge of music and she play's the piano absolutely beautifully. I highly recommend her for all ages that desire to learn the piano.

Rina taught my son oboe lessons for two years. She was the perfect mix of being approachable, friendly, knowledgeable, and serious about teaching oboe. When I was looking for a teacher I was especially concerned that I find someone who would go beyond teaching how to play the notes, and would get deeply into the technique - the real details of articulation and all of the performance points specific to the oboe. My son always ended lessons being motivated to practice and enjoying the experience. He also mentioned that he learned more in a single lesson with Rina than in months with other teachers. I recommend Rina as an oboe teacher without reservation.

I like music to be fun! I have played in major symphony orchestras, classical and jazz groups, in costume at Universal Studios and surrounding Orlando area and created my own pop oboe CDs. I like to explore all styles of music including pop, rock, jazz and classical.

My doctorate is in music and I have experience teaching music at multiple universities, as a public schools teacher, and as a private instructor. I can help students understand basic fingerings, embouchure, reed work, and practice habits that will foster a greater understanding of the instrument. My lessons are customized to the needs and desires of each student. For booking, please sign up with TakeLessons today, and then we'll arrange a mutually agreeable meeting time. I look forward to hearing from you!

Just finished my third sax lesson with Dr. Spaeth. This man really knows his stuff, and more importantly, he knows how to teach. Highly recommended.

This instrument may sound like a duck at first but with a little instruction and practice can be a beautiful instrument. This is also great if you are looking for a scholarship to either high school or college.
