Private Oboe Teacher

Hello!

I have my Bachelor's degree in Music from Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon. I can make and adjust reeds, to best help my students produce a sound that they are happy with. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Longy School of Music, in Boston.

Lessons can be as relaxed or fast-paced as they need to be, I take a very individualized approach to meet the needs of each student's abilities. I love to give my students choices in their musical path- making music should be fun and enjoyable! Despite that, we still get to business when we have to.

Let's make some music together!

Private Oboe Teacher

To become an oboist, it is important to not only learn the music, but to put a little bit of yourself into every note you play. Playing such a unique and beautiful instrument like the oboe is a joy that I look forward to experiencing with each of my students. Every oboe lesson is customized to the individual's desires and needs. Throughout lessons, we will work on basic fundamentals, repertoire, and musicianship. With over 6 years of teaching experience, I am confident that you will be playing in no time! I also specialize in reed-making, and love helping students with their reeds, as well as sell personalized reeds.

About Emilia

I have been teaching private voice and oboe lessons since 2012. From pop to classical, I believe that as long as you maintain a healthy foundation, you can sing and play any style of music you want! Throughout my career, I have been featured as a vocalist and oboist on Billboard-charting and award-

She's given me the direction that I need to get back on my feet and she's open to discussing any music questions that I have. She's laid back so it's easy to make a schedule that works for both of us. I highly recommend her."

"My daughter wanted to learn the oboe to complement her clarinet playing. We found Angela on this site and took a chance despite the limited reviews. Angela is awesome. My daughter loves her and she has learned a lot over the several lessons she has had with her.

Angela's location is in the heart of Koreatown, which means an abundance of great food and tea nearby if you need to kill time waiting for your child's lesson to complete. But it also means that it's really hard to park. It's worth figuring out the parking situation though, for a teacher this good."
