Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
Linda Moore
A great first lesson even though my oboe didn’t work. I learned a lot of fingerings and about reed making. Great fun.
Eleni
We feel very fortunate to have Rina M. as our daughter’s music instructor, for oboe and guitar. Our daughter’s musical ability and knowledge has grown exponentially, and her music teacher at school has praised her understanding of music / music theory, most of which she learned since working with Mrs. Rina. We are so happy to have found TakeLessons, as this is how we were introduced to Mrs. Rina. She is very special to us, and we highly recommend her!

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.

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
Troy W.
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!!

Music is an art form that I have a passion for and it is my goal for each student to find their passion with music in their own way. I can provide the tools and know-how to build a foundation of playing that will be enriching for you as my student - because it was the result of your own hard work and commitment. There are many sides to music and I am happy to work with whatever a student would like to play; be it a sonata, concerto, or ensemble work and even a pop song or two! I want to make my student's experience enjoyable and worthwhile. This is a safe space for you as my student to try new things without judgment or harsh criticism. This is your opportunity to set and reach your personal goals and artistic aspirations! I have the mastery and experience of playing in a variety of highly regarded positions both academically and professionally, and as a result of my own time working with world famous musicians. Finally, I understand music as a language that few can tap into, but all ...

Very satisfied with Andrew's support of my son's oboe classes. Andrew was patient and encouraging, which is exactly what my son needed. I was sorry that he moved an could no longer teach my son.

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!"
