Private 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 :)

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.

Private Oboe Teacher

*Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, please note I am only accepting students for online lessons until further notice*

I have over 10 years of experience teaching oboe and customize lesson plans for my students. I focus on listening, musicality, and technique. My lessons include a warm up geared to establish a solid daily routine, technical studies, a piece from oboe literature, and sight reading. I also teach reed making and recommend students learn to make their own reeds if they intend to play oboe beyond high school. I believe that good, new reeds are critical to a student’s success-both for tone and embouchure development.

About Linnea

I am a freelance oboist, reed maker, and music teacher in the Seattle area. My teaching studio is currently based in Everett. I have over ten years of teaching experience and love working with students of all ages. My goals are helping you find a love for playing your instrument and assisting you

Ryver B.
Linnea is very patient and knowledgeable about her instrument. I truly appreciate her working with my daughter on not only her orchestra lessons, but with strengthening her sight reading, how to hold a bow properly, and more. All in 3 lessons. My daughter has already improved. Thank you!

Rebecca is phenomenal for private lessons for all ages. She is very patient and makes learning the clarinet fun. She is detail oriented and will help you be the best you can be while still being encouraging and helpful. Rebecca gives clear feedback and suggestions to fix issues, she also is very knowledgeable about repertoire and new opportunities for playing. I would recommend her to everyone I known interested in clarinet.

Online Oboe Teacher

I am a double reed (oboe and bassoon) specialist and have played both for over 16 years. I tutor the double reed students at Hughson High School and Ross Middle School during the school year. Proper oboe embouchure, technique and selection and adjustment of reeds is something most public school teachers overlook. Trust a specialist!

I teach oboe primarily through the tried and true Rubank method and the Ferling studies. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed adjustment, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for oboe to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle

Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay wi

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

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
Hailey
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.

Online Oboe Teacher

I have been playing oboe for 14 years! I have studied under Linda Strommen during my undergraduate degree at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I am fortunate to have been able to perform in various ensembles across the world, including winning a resident principal oboe of the Freiburger Studenten-Orchester for the 2014-2015 season. I am able to work on fundamental concepts such as technique and music theory, as well as develop a musical concept and improve the musical creativity. Together, we can improve your overall proficiency on your oboe, as well as prepare for any audition and ensemble you’re interested in! If interested, we can even arrange time to collaborate and just read through some duets together. Let’s begin this journey together!

About Taylor

During my years as a musician, I’ve gathered experience playing oboe 1/2 and English horn in orchestras, wind ensembles, woodwind quintets, and trios. Whil

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."

"Our daughter is taking Oboe and Piano lessons with Lisa. Lisa has taught her more than she has learned from anyone else (including her instructors at school), she is always encouraging our daughter to reach a little higher than her current level, and interested in the music she wants to learn to play instead of just the lesson book. As a parent that knows very little about music, Lisa has always gone out of her way to help us with any questions we have about buying instruments or just in general."
