Taking lessons online from Christina has not slowed my progress at all. She is very patient and understanding of her students’ quirks. She never lets us forget the importance of the fundamentals, no matter how technical our exercises or music may be. I have improved more with her as my instructor than I thought possible. When I think it’s too difficult, she encourages me to just make small improvements each week. Those small moves forward make all the difference between constant improvement and the voice in my head that says “What were you thinking? Why did you think you could do this?” Also, she has a great sense of humor and is almost always flexible with lesson times. I took lessons for almost 3 years before meeting Christina and I think I was at a good place in my development for her to help me become a better player and musician.

Private Oboe Teacher

Oboe has been my passion since I was 12 years old. I am originally from Kansas City, MO. However, I currently reside in Tallahassee, FL and am in my fourth year of pursuing my Bachelors in Woodwind Performance at Florida State University. I have numerous years of performance experience and have three years of teaching experience. My goals are to help younger students have the solid foundations required to be successful at playing the oboe. Working on breath support, technique, and even reed making. Switching to oboe from another instrument can be especially difficult, and all of my teaching experience is with students who have switched.

I currently, play in a local church orchestra, aside from my school ensembles. Additionally, I have played in community orchestras, as well as a few pit orchestra jobs, and some Christmas church performances. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with anyone and everyone. The oboe brings a lot of joy into my life, and I hope to share that passion ...

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.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

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!!

Whether you are starting out on oboe, switching from another instrument, preparing for an audition, or simply looking to brush up on your skills, I can help you reach your oboe goals!

All lessons are customized to your interests and needs. My teaching experience ranges from complete beginners to advanced students. We can work on everything from the fundamentals and etudes to advanced recital and audition repertoire! For those looking to branch out, we can also cover instrument adjustment, English horn and reed-making in the lessons.

Great reeds are vital for oboists and I can help with buying advice or learning to make your own reeds! I can also adjust your reeds or sell personalized reeds in person or via mail.

For students wishing to broaden their musical insights, I also can incorporate music theory and history into the lessons - subjects that I teach at the college level.

I am a professional oboist residing in New Orleans. I perform with the Louisiana Philharmonic, ...

I have studied and played the oboe for 12 years. I received a B.A. in Oboe Performance from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory in 2020.
Oboe lessons with me look different depending on the student's needs and skill levels!

Oboe can be a challenging instrument to learn, I am passionate about providing an enriching, fun, learning experience for my students!
I hope to bring joy others lives through music!

I am comfortable with all skill levels. I also have experience with reed making, which is something we can discuss introducing into lessons as well if appropriate.

With the guidance of a dedicated music professional and patient teachings, my daughter has not only learned to play the oboe and piano, my daughter has made personal accomplishments beyond our expectation, and has brought out a sense of self-confidence within her.

"Rina taught my son oboe lessons for two years. She was the perfect mix of being approachable, friendly, knowledgeable, and serious about teaching oboe. When I was looking for a teacher I was especially concerned that I find someone who would go beyond teaching how to play the notes, and would get deeply into the technique - the real details of articulation and all of the performance points specific to the oboe. My son always ended lessons being motivated to practice and enjoying the experience. He also mentioned that he learned more in a single lesson with Rina than in months with other teachers. I recommend Rina as an oboe teacher without reservation."
