Private Oboe Teacher

Experienced teacher having taught all levels from beginning to graduate level students. I am a professional musician who has performed with professional orchestras, including under the baton of an internationally-renowned conductor. I studied oboe with a performer of the New York Philharmonic and the principal oboe of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. My oboe lessons focus on all aspects of musicianship and real-world expectations, and cater to each student's individual learning style. You will be well prepared for any performance situation you will encounter.

Online Oboe Teacher

I have been teaching oboe for 20 years and have had students of many nationalities. The lessons will have a variety of materials and can be custom-made to meet the student’s needs and goals. We would study scales, etudes, solos, chamber music and composition. Oboe techniques such as vibrato, special fingering, tonguing, musicality, and suggestions for reeds would also be a part of the lesson. If possible, I love to play duets or at least demonstrate concepts and ideas. If the students would like to play a particular style or music, they just need to let me know.

About Dianne

I have both a bachelor and masters in music. I have been very fortunate to have amazing teachers: John Mack (Cleveland Orchestra), Pam Pecha (Cleveland Orchestra), Louis Rosenblatt (Philadelphia Orchestra) and Adrian Gnam (Mercer University). Playing oboe has allowed me to play in many orchestras

Raquel
Mrs. Salminen is, without a doubt, the best oboe teacher my child has ever had. Her outstanding professionalism, in-depth knowledge, contagious passion, resourcefulness, immense dedication, and extraordinary ability to build caring relationships make her the perfect music instructor. Mrs. Salminen has helped my daughter improve her dexterity with the instrument immensely by always inspiring her with kind words of encouragement and by setting an excellent example. She has gone the extra mile in finding engaging pieces to keep Natalia motivated, aiding us in purchasing the finest oboe possible within our budget, and making great recommendations about reeds.
Mrs. Salminen is not only an excellent teacher but an extraordinary human being.

My name is Carlin, concertmaster of the Guangzhou Baroque Orchestra. I had the privilege to collaborate with Dianne, both in the orchestra and as soloists. Her beautiful tone, impeccable intonation, combined with warm and easy going personality, made her a very popular person in the orchestra.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

"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. I was very impressed with Takelessons and the convenience of doing lessons in our own home. Bonnie was very flexible with our summer schedule too."
