Private Oboe Teacher

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 were 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 switched on to the clarinet (played it in a community b

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 was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.
Erika H.
Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Stellar teacher! He really knows his stuff and how to convey it!
Justine
I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

Amazing Player...Even Better Teacher.

From my first lesson with Bonnie, she opened me up to a new realm of musicianship and technique that I had never experienced before. She re-ignited a passion in my music that I was beginning to lose. I am forever grateful to her for this.

Bonnie is a hundred percent devoted to music, her playing and her teaching. One of the things I love most about her is that she seems to know everything about the flute, yet she is always striving to learn more. And if, every once in a while, there is something she doesn't know, she investigates. She finds an answer, contemplates it, and teaches me.

Bonnie is also a genuinely caring person who is entirely invested in her students. She often e-mails me after my lesson to tell me something that she had thought about relating to my lesson, proving that she is always thinking about ways to help me in my playing.

Bonnie continues to challenge me and encourage me in all my playing - she truly makes me feel that with enough practice and determination there is nothing I can't play. She even helped me attain a 100 on my all-state level piece this year. However, the score is less meaningful than the feeling I had after I performed that day. I knew that I was playing on a level I had never imagined - all due to Bonnie's inspiring me to always be better and her total confidence in me, not only as a flute player, but also as a musician.

Bonnie's musicianship and playing is unparalleled, her teaching style unique and engaging and, once you get to know her, she is quite the comedian. I am truly lucky to have her as my teacher.
Mary Ellen B.
An engaging and wonderful instructor

I have been extremely fortunate to have had Bonnie McAlvin teaching flute, piccolo and music theory to my older daughter for nine years and flute to my younger daughter for four. She is an enthusiastic and energetic teacher that inspires a great love of musicianship in her students. My older daughter is a first chair flutist in a wind ensemble and plays with a prestigious children's orchestra entirely due to the patient and thorough instruction she has received from Bonnie. It is a great blessing to have musically talented children but an even bigger blessing to have an instructor who can give them the skills and encouragement to achieve excellence. My older daughter is working towards attending a conservatory for college and the younger daughter fully expects to have music be part of her education going forward. This is entirely due to Bonnie's influence and guidance. We could not be more pleased. My girls love their lessons with Bonnie and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Online Oboe Teacher

Hello!

I have my Bachelor's degree in Music from Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon. I can make and adjust reeds, to best help my students produce a sound that they are happy with. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Longy School of Music, in Boston.

Lessons can be as relaxed or fast-paced as they need to be, I take a very individualized approach to meet the needs of each student's abilities. I love to give my students choices in their musical path- making music should be fun and enjoyable! Despite that, we still get to business when we have to.

Let's make some music together!

"Bonnie did a great job with my daughter. She had just taken up the oboe during the school year and we wanted to keep up her skills during the summer. Bonnie was great helping my daughter learn additional oboe techniques that will help her when she returns to school.
