Oboe:
A family of double reed woodwind musical instruments, they are usually made of wood, but there are also oboes made of synthetic materials. The Oboe is commonly used in concert bands, orchestras, chamber music, film music, in some genres of folk music, and as a solo instrument, and is occasionally heard in jazz, rock music, pop music, and popular music. I will begin by teaching the basics of breath control, apeture, fingering, the reed, notes, rhythms, reading, songs, theory, and soloing.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Private Oboe Teacher

My lessons are a great way to learn to play the oboe, be ready to perform and work towards your musical goals. Each student has different instructional needs to grow into the best musician they can be. I enjoy working with beginners as well as advanced students preparing for auditions and competitions. Lessons are a balance between fundamentals, pieces, etudes and having fun. Students get to learn standard repertoire as well as fun pieces like Frozen and Harry Potter!  Lessons allow me to touch up reeds from week to week to ensure they play well and last as long as possible. Learning any instrument can be difficult but with lessons it can be fun!

Veroslav is the consummate piano teacher--dedicated, patient, caring and encouraging. He has been teaching my nine and six year old children for the past year and a half and they have made significant progress under his tutelage. He is firm and exacting, but also kind and praising, when praise is due. Veroslav has an individualized approach to teaching—he is able to connect with children and tailor his teaching style to the temperament and aptitude of each child. Veroslav chooses pieces of classical and contemporary music that would not only be enjoyed by his students but would teach them particular skills. His lessons include a wide diversity of skill development through level appropriate performance and practice books. We are extremely happy that Veroslav has been our children's piano teacher and are looking forward to working with him in the years to come.

We’re very happy we found Veroslav! He’s friendly, and patient, and very knowledgeable and proficient. Kids love his lessons, and I can see the progress already (we started in October). Would definitely recommend him!

Private Oboe Teacher

I have been playing and teaching oboe for over 35 years. Many of my students have gone on to play in universities with scholarships, but more importantly have developed a love of music. I was the founder and co-artistic director of an award winning chamber group having two on-going subscription series. Within the first few lessons you will be able to read musical notation, understand basic music theory, and play simple songs. Depending on your ability, I will choose the right method book for you. I love working with students of all ages and can't wait to meet you!
My teaching style is relaxed, but highly structured. My former students made great advancements with my guidance. However, no advancement can be achieved without the student putting in the necessary time at home to practice their instrument.

Rina is a wonderful teacher. From the perspective of an adult student, her understanding of the challenges an adult beginner experiences puts the student at ease when taking lessons with her. While exhibiting such empathy, Rina will always inspire the student to become a better musician. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
