One of my favorite instruments to teach-- I often say that my specialty is convincing people that they should play double reed instruments! Generally seen as more of a challenge, double reeds like the oboe can be frustrating for beginners, but don't worry-- I can guide you through any troubles and help you learn this beautiful instrument.

Cory was a great teacher for our son who brought him a deep insight into this difficult instrument. We hope to have her back again. Thanks, Cory!

Lessons include a balance among instrumental performance, reed-making, theoretical analysis, and historical context. Lessons are highly structured and flexible to student interest. Expectations for practice and technique are consistent and clear so as to catalyze student growth and productivity. Practice materials and curriculum are catered to individual needs and interest, focusing on the minimization of practice time through objective and effective strategies. Lessons can be recorded.

He has higher expectations than her previous teacher and communicated them in a fun yet firm manner to my daughter. She left her first lesson with him with renewed spark for piano. He's a great fit for us.

Great lesson, Thomas took the time to take a song I wanted to learn to play and create notes so I may play them.

I like music to be fun! I have played in major symphony orchestras, classical and jazz groups, in costume at Universal Studios and surrounding Orlando area and created my own pop oboe CDs. I like to explore all styles of music including pop, rock, jazz and classical.

Highly recommend Bonnie. We have had over 50 lessons with Bonnie over the last 2.25 year period. My girls started with her when they were just 4 years old. Her program works. She created a fantastic and fun program with color coded animals that is great for all ages. I have friends who have never had a music lesson in their life and they can pick up her books and start playing right away. Her piano books also make great gifts for small children.

Taking lessons at her house
She has a lovely waiting room with comfortable chairs and toys. If you're Florida acclimated, bring a sweater!

Taking lessons online:
Though they are incredibly convenient, online lessons do not work well with my girls.

If I could give her 6 stars I would! Bonnie was a great teacher with an amazing personality. I liked how Bonnie truly cares for her students and cares about teaching in a very professional manager. Best teacher ever!

I have been playing and teaching oboe for over 35 years. Before I was a public school music teacher, I played oboe and English horn professionally in New York City where I was a member of many Broadway shows. I was the founder and co-artistic director of an award winning chamber group called, The Rosewood Chamber Ensemble, where we had two on-going subscription series. I was a fellow at the Bach Aria Festival and Institute in Stony Brook, NY. While in Arizona, I was principal oboe and English horn with the Sun City Symphony, the Arizona Chamber Ensemble, and have had a private oboe studio teaching many high school students who I have helped prepare and win auditions for regionals and state orchestra.
My teaching style is relaxed, but highly structured. My former students made great advancements with my guidance. However, no advancement can be achieved without the student putting in the necessary time at home to practice their instrument.

I have been playing the oboe for 12 years and private teaching for the past three. I recently earned my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Butler University and am now pursuing a Master in Oboe Performance at UCLA. My students develop a deep appreciation for music and participate in a variety of ensembles. Within the first few lessons, we will establish a learning plan that is specific to your level of playing. We will focus on improvement of technicality while also cultivating musicality.

Meredith is a phenomenal oboe instructor. My 10 year old boy loves her. She is extremely patient, lovely and kind as well as a skilled instructor. She knows how to adjust her lesson plans for my son's level and is quick to come up with idea to make the lesson fun. She is really gifted in her ability to communicate her knowledge to my son to improve in skills. I would recommend Meredith to everybody- any age because she is incredible.
Thank you Meredith!!
