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.
Layla
Clare is not only a wonderful oboist but a wonderful oboe teacher. She takes the time to put technique first which made a huge difference in my playing. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!
Todd
Clare is a wonderful oboist who plays with emotion and that same energy transfers into her teaching.

Great online lesson! I haven't played the oboe in 20 years. Prior to my first lesson with Grace, she provided contact info for a reputable oboe dealer as well as a source of reeds - so I would be ready to get started. During my first lesson, I played a few different oboes I had on trial from the oboe dealer. I played, and we discussed the pros and cons of each. Grace also suggested ways to improve my embouchure, as well as relaxation techniques for holding my instrument - to avoid fatigue. I was pleasantly surprised at how much ground we covered during the first lesson!

I have a Master's Degree in Oboe Performance. Oboe is my main instrument. I can teach students how to make oboe reeds. I enjoy teaching beginning students proper embouchure, hand position, and proper breathing techniques. I teach the beginning student how to take care of their reed properly. I emphasize learning music fundamentals. Intermediate students learn their scales and arpeggios. We will look at various technique books and solos. Advanced students can get help with learning how to make reeds. I have found a platform that enables me to play duets with my students online.

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!
