Shannon is my personal trainer and running coach. She adapts to my body requirements as needed. I'm running better, losing weight, eating better, etc. She's amazing. Results are great! I would recommend her to anyone. Love her!

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 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.

I have been playing and teaching oboe for over 35 years. Many of my students have gone on to play in universities with scholarships, but more importantly have developed a love of music. I was the founder and co-artistic director of an award winning chamber group where we had two on-going subscription series. Within the first few lessons you will be able to read musical notation, understand basic music theory, and play simple songs. Depending on your ability, I will choose the right method book for you. I love working with students of all ages and can't wait to meet you!
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 am an "older" student (60+ years old) starting with the basics. Jill's wealth of experience as a musician and as a teacher have supported my progress, and have made lessons enjoyable!

Jill is so kind and patient with me. She wanted me to learn the basic correctly and play the music the way it should be, She is very talented and highly recommended to any one who would like to take piano lessons. I gave her 5 big, big stars.

I have 8 years of experience teaching oboe and customize lesson plans for my students. I focus on listening, musicality, and technique. My lesson plans include a warm-up geared to establish a solid daily routine, technical studies, a piece from oboe literature, and sight-reading duets. Reeds are included in the price of lessons. I believe that good, new reeds are critical to a student’s success-both for tone and embouchure development. I provide all my students with three reeds at all times.
