Private Oboe Teacher

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!!

I like to begin with the Essential Elements series. I have had a lot of success with my beginners in this series. I also encourage my oboists to bring and play with a tuner. Having a great ear for pitch is absolutely necessary for playing the oboe.

Lisa was wonderful. Very patient, detailed explanations, and went above and beyond. I’ve felt intimidated by sewing and even the process of setting up my machine but she was able to illuminate that process. This lesson was worth every penny and I’m looking forward to the next one.

The oboe is an amazing instrument! The oboe is unique because it uses a double reed. I am so excited to teach you more about the oboe. I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the oboe including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, half-hole technique, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

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!

Private Oboe Teacher

Oboe has been my passion since I was 12 years old. I am originally from Kansas City, MO. However, I currently reside in Tallahassee, FL and am in my fourth year of pursuing my Bachelors in Woodwind Performance at Florida State University. I have numerous years of performance experience and have three years of teaching experience. My goals are to help younger students have the solid foundations required to be successful at playing the oboe. Working on breath support, technique, and even reed making. Switching to oboe from another instrument can be especially difficult, and all of my teaching experience is with students who have switched.

I currently, play in a local church orchestra, aside from my school ensembles. Additionally, I have played in community orchestras, as well as a few pit orchestra jobs, and some Christmas church performances. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with anyone and everyone. The oboe brings a lot of joy into my life, and I hope to share that passion ...

"Clare could not be more supportive, patient, and willing to facilitate changes to schedules. If you are new to this instrument, or already proficient, you will have a nice experience under her instruction. I am an adult student, and I have unique challenges. She has accommodated me in a way that has motivated me to write this review without her asking me. That should tell you something."
