Angela is a great teacher. She was very patient and helped my daughter gain confidence with Oboe. My daughter made measurable progress in just 10 classes she took. Angela also recommended a good reed to purchase. We will be back soon for additional classes. Thanks

Angela is so great to work with! She's very kind and patient, and the environment created is very comfortable. She has really helped me improve my technique and I've also learned new skills quite quickly. Her understanding of music has definitely helped me dive deeper into pieces and make them more musical.

Overall, Angela is a phenomenal teacher and I've had great experiences with her!

Online Oboe Teacher

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 :)

About Justin

As a highly skilled musician and teacher with proven experience in building music programs, teaching all levels of skill, expressing a high level of artistry, and developing professional relationships; I believe you will thoroughly enjoy working with me. I have been a life long musician, starting

One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

My teaching philosophy centers around you, the student! Learning oboe is a wonderful journey to embark upon and I am here to get you started. We will go over the fundamentals of oboe and music overall. But most importantly, we will focus on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to play a piece of music for your family? Perhaps work on making your very own reeds! I am excited to be your oboe teacher, and I can't wait to begin.

About David

"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."
