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

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.

Overall, Angela is a phenomenal teacher and I've had great experiences with her!

He’s very patient and kind especially for 2 active little girls.

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.

About Joshua

Hi! I am Joshua, and I am a woodwind doubler. This means that I specialize in all of the woodwind instruments, but my primary instrument is Oboe. I am a third year college student majoring in Oboe performance, and I have made the intercollegiate honor band in South Carolina. I have also attended the

Josh is a fantastic clarinet instructor. He’s enthusiastic, patient, and finds the right balance of fun and challenging exercises. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well the online lessons have gone.
Heather M.
If you've ever had to tell a coworker how to do something on a computer that you do 100 times a day without thinking, you know how hard it is to verbalize the things you do with muscle memory. Joshua is a whiz at finding exactly the right way to explain how to adjust my mechanics to make progress on my instrument. I played flute in HS over 30 years ago and was a little nervous about starting over at my age but Joshua is completely supportive and positive and fun. I also happen to be a science teacher and I've loved being a student again because it's helping me relate to my students and to think about feedback - so it's like my flute lessons are coming with bonus lessons on how to teach. I've learned a lot from Joshua in just a couple of months.

Private Oboe Teacher

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.

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!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

"Grace is very friendly and easy to work with. At first, I was anxious to have my son take lessons online but Grace gives great explanations during lessons and is very interactive even though she is not present in person. I’ve heard improvements in my son’s tone and technique in just a few lessons. I would definitely recommend Grace as a teacher.

For reference to those in similar situations, my son is a high school student with 3 years of prior oboe experience.

Please disregard my previous review, there was an internet error that caused it to prematurely submit."

"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."
