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!!

My daughter learned additional skills and mastered new pieces while working with Dawn. Her dedication and experience teaching online helped our young oboist to progress quicker, and the school band teacher noticed the improvement too. We're happy we found Dawn on takelessons!

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!
