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.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

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!!

Taking lessons online from Christina has not slowed my progress at all. She is very patient and understanding of her students’ quirks. She never lets us forget the importance of the fundamentals, no matter how technical our exercises or music may be. I have improved more with her as my instructor than I thought possible. When I think it’s too difficult, she encourages me to just make small improvements each week. Those small moves forward make all the difference between constant improvement and the voice in my head that says “What were you thinking? Why did you think you could do this?” Also, she has a great sense of humor and is almost always flexible with lesson times. I took lessons for almost 3 years before meeting Christina and I think I was at a good place in my development for her to help me become a better player and musician.

Whether you are starting out on oboe, switching from another instrument, preparing for an audition, or simply looking to brush up on your skills, I can help you reach your oboe goals!

All lessons are customized to your interests and needs. My teaching experience ranges from complete beginners to advanced students. We can work on everything from the fundamentals and etudes to advanced recital and audition repertoire! For those looking to branch out, we can also cover instrument adjustment, English horn and reed-making in the lessons.

Great reeds are vital for oboists and I can help with buying advice or learning to make your own reeds! I can also adjust your reeds or sell personalized reeds in person or via mail.

For students wishing to broaden their musical insights, I also can incorporate music theory and history into the lessons - subjects that I teach at the college level.

I am a professional oboist residing in New Orleans. I perform with the Louisiana Philharmonic, ...

Phillip is an exceptionally patient, supportive and focused piano teacher. My 10-year old daughter has really enjoyed working with him and she has grown in her appreciation of the instrument overall. Phillip's easy going yet direct feedback style make the learning a lot less intimidating for beginners and particularly for a young child with fledging confidence. We have really enjoyed having our daughter learn with Phillip!

"Grace is very friendly and easy to work with. At first, I was anxious to have my son take lessons online but Grace gives great explanations during lessons and is very interactive even though she is not present in person. I’ve heard improvements in my son’s tone and technique in just a few lessons. I would definitely recommend Grace as a teacher.

For reference to those in similar situations, my son is a high school student with 3 years of prior oboe experience.

Please disregard my previous review, there was an internet error that caused it to prematurely submit."
