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

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!

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!

I am working primarily in Westchester area.

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.
Tatiana
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!

"Our daughter is taking Oboe and Piano lessons with Lisa. Lisa has taught her more than she has learned from anyone else (including her instructors at school), she is always encouraging our daughter to reach a little higher than her current level, and interested in the music she wants to learn to play instead of just the lesson book. As a parent that knows very little about music, Lisa has always gone out of her way to help us with any questions we have about buying instruments or just in general."

"Dawn was great with my 10 year old son. She really took a lot of time with him. She had a lit of patience. By the end of the lesson he had learned how to do some of the fingering he had been having trouble with. He felt a lot more confident with his Instrument. I would highly recommend her to any student. In addition to the lesson, she was very easy to schedule with and fit us in at very short notice."
