My son just had his first lesson with Christian and was very happy. He has been playing in the school band for a year and needs some help prepping for next year. We emailed the music he has to learn to Christian and after some warm up and exercises to assess my son, they dove straight into the etude he was struggling with.
We weren’t sure about the online format, but it worked just fine and we won’t have to drag a full size tuba around town anymore!

Stanton, CA

With 10 years of teaching experience, I specialize in working with students of all ages and abilities. Lessons incorporate music theory, technique, and lyrical expression. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I hold a Master's Degree in Oboe Performance from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University, Long Beach. During my studies I studied with Carolyn Hove and Humbert Lucarelli.

About Grace
Grace has extensive experience teaching private and group lessons, including lessons in Piano, English Horn and reed making. Her students have gone on to win scholarships and place in honor orchestras. Currently, her students hold the top spots in nTyme's (North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble) Chamber Orchestra.

Locally, Grace has performed with the Dana Point Symphony, Symphony Irvine, as well as other groups around Southern California. Previously, she was a long time member of the Cheshire Symphony.

Whether you choose to take lessons online, in my home studio, or in your home, I strive to make each lesson engaging, informative, and fun! Students are expected to practice in-between lessons and come to lessons prepared with their instrument and music. I also encourage students to bring any music that they're interested in learni
ng to their lessons.

**In-home Lessons**
Currently, I'm traveling to the Southbay area on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. If you reside within that area and the time you'd like isn't in my availability, please let me know, as I may be able to make it work (depending on location). If you have any scheduling questions, please contact me before booking lessons.

**Group Lessons**
I don't offer traditional group lessons, as I've found they slow down the progress of both students and therefore aren't cost effective. Arrangements can be made for back to back lessons instead. Please contact me before booking lessons.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, and I can't wait to meet you!

Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

I began taking oboe lessons at the age of 8 and have continued with the instrument through a Music Performance degree at Chapman University and am currently completing my Masters degree in Oboe Performance and the University of Southern California. As an oboe teacher, I find it equally important for my students to strengthen their technique and their musicality. To become a strong oboist, it is important to not only play the music properly, but to put a little bit of yourself into every piece you play. I also specialize in reed-making, and love helping students with their reeds, as well as sell reeds to young oboists.

About Emilia
I have been teaching private voice and oboe lessons since 2012. My approach to teaching is expressing yourself naturally. From pop to classical, I believe that as long as you maintain a healthy foundation, you can sing and play any style of music you want! Throughout my career, I have been featured as a vocalist and oboist on Billboard-charting and award-winning albums that vary in genre and style, and have learned that you can conquer any style you wish with the right foundation. I have been playing and singing since I was 8 years old, and recently graduated from the University of Southern California with my Masters in Oboe Performance, having graduated from Chapman University with my Bachelors in Music Performance with a double emphasis in Vocal and Oboe Performance in 2016.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, electric keyboard, acoust
ic guitar, oboe, english horn, video camera with professional-level sound, iMAC, speakers.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Portable keyboard, music stand, laptop, iPad, recording devices that can have recordings sent to students after or during lessons!

*** Specialties ***
I trained classically but personally enjoy singing Pop and Musical Theatre. Because of my background, I like to make sure that my students have good technique that carries through to singing any style they like so that they can accomplish all of their goals without damaging their voices and affecting their health. I have extensive experience with singing in languages including Spanish, French, German, and Italian and like my students to experience different languages as well.

Los Angeles, CA

I will make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. I have a warm personality, am extremely friendly, and will strive to get to know you.

I will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory and can also incorporate your favourite songs into your lessons (if there's any in particular that you would like to learn).

About Osvaldo
I've been playing clarinet for 16 years and have not stopped ever since. Music lessons was first introduced to me at the age of 8 by my godfather. He taught me basic music theory with the piano and trumpet. I gave up the trumpet at age 12 and moved on to the clarinet and played it in a community band named "Banda Juvenil Solaga, USA, Oaxaca."

By the time I made it to the university (CSULA), I began getting lessons from Helen G. Castro (She has and still is one of the best mentors I've ever gotten). I've performed 5 years with the Cal State LA Wind Ensemble under the conducting of Dr. Emily Moss (Another great mentor. She's one of the reasons why I decided to pursue a career in music education).

I've graduated in 2015, BM in the field of Music Education. Am still planning to pursue a Masters in Music Performance. But first, I still
have to save up.

I'm currently teaching in the Saturday Conservatory of Music and the New Life Vision Church. I'm private teaching as well; giving clarinet, saxophone, and oboe lessons.

Lessons are focused around having fun while becoming a full rounded musician and stellar oboe player. In addition to gaining the fundamental skills necessary to master the art of the oboe, we cover everything from music theory to reeds and anything in between. All levels and ages are welcome. It is never too late to start!

About Zoe
I am a performer, administrator, and arts advocate with an aim to inspire audiences in unconventional ways. A Native of Miami, Florida, I started my musical studies at the age of 12 and has been an active member of the Miami and Baltimore music scenes ever since. Since coming to Baltimore to study at the Peabody Conservatory in 2011, I have had the opportunity to perform with nearly every large ensemble in the school and have also performed in Yale's Norfolk Summer Music Festival, as faculty at the New York Summer Music festival during my time studying in conservatory, and with the Occasional Symphony. I regularly perform in the Baltimore/DC metro area as a freelance oboist and member of the contemporary chamber orchestra, Mind on Fire. I also have performed with the Columbia Orchestra, Classical Revolution Baltimore, and many other estee
med local organizations. I have also been featured as a woodwind clinician in Baltimore County and Howard County public schools classrooms and have been the oboe adjudicator for the middle and high school division of the Howard County Solo & Ensembles for the past three years.

I graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University with a Masters in Oboe Performance in 2016. I additionally hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance as well as a Teaching Certificate from the Peabody Conservatory. During my time at Peabody, I studied under Jane Marvine, English Horn of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

While studying at Peabody, my passion for music education was ignited and I really enjoyed exploring the development of my skills and resources both as a classroom and studio teacher. It is my personal mission to enrich students through music education while still having fun and learning to apply skills learned in music to other areas of life.

I am currently the Operations Manager with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Previously, I have held administrative positions with cultural organizations such as the Baltimore Choral Arts Society and the New York Philharmonic. I have been on both sides of the music industry and classroom, so I know what it takes to become a professional musician, and take a nuanced pedagogical approach to help each student achieve their goals in a way that suits them individually - no two students are the same! I believe each student should have a strong fundamental layer in technique and understanding of music theory, but should also focus on having fun while playing music, otherwise, what is the point?

Outside of oboe I enjoy hiking with my dog, painting, yoga, and Cuban food.

Want to learn the most unique instrument? The Oboe! Specialized in teaching beginner/intermediate musicians. All ages welcome! Lessons are customized to specific goals/needs of the student whether it is learning to play the oboe, to learning beginning music theory and ear training, to even learning to read music! Let's get started!

About Hannah
Hello! :)

My name is Hannah Koury (pronounced like 'Hah-nah'), and I am currently a college junior attending UC Irvine studying Music Performance - Oboe. I have a huge passion for music and performing and want to share my love to future young musicians.

I grew up learning the piano, began learning the clarinet in 4th grade and switched to oboe in 7th grade. In the beginning, the oboe can be difficult and frustrating to learn. But the pay off is amazing! Also, the oboe gets a lot of solos so you can show off your skills.

I am confident that I can teach any child with a passion for music how to love the oboe and music in general. For beginners, I am also able to teach students how to read music. I would love the opportunity to teach your child the beauty of music and the oboe.
