I couldn't have asked for a nicer teacher. The first 15 minutes Shannon helped me get my Skype working right when I thought it was. I liked the patience she had trying to figure out my problem with Skype so I'm sure she will be the same after hearing more of the off tune sax I have :). Thanks Shannon!

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.

I am a very shy person and doing this was a challenge for me. Thomas put me at ease, and we had a very good lesson! I learned a lot, and I can't wait to practice more on my own.

Thank you, Thomas!!

A Great Learning Experience

Learning with Matt has given me much confidence in my singing. His excellent teaching skills gives me more confidence to perform, audition, and has indeed improved my vocal chords. Aside from just learning how to improve my singing, Matt has really been a great help on providing me information that I needed to know about Musical Theater, which I really appreciate his complete advice. With such a positive attitude, he thoroughly explains how to warm up the voice and pronounce every consonant/vowel. I, myself, can hear the difference when I perform songs as well as my family and friends. He is a tremendous teacher and I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn how to improve their singing and confidence.

Working with Matthew B.

Mr. Matthew B. is a very helpful and knowledgeable instructor. He goes through the passages of each lesson with me, points at the most complex areas and asks me to focus the practice on those when doing exercises. I am pleased to have Mr. Mathew B. as my piano instructor.

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.

She is very patient with my 3 year old son. She is very encouraging and engages him when he needs redirection with his short attentions span. I could not have asked for a better instructor. I appreciate everything she is doing for us.

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.
