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.

About Cory
I am a classically trained bassoonist with a Master's degree from London's Royal College of Music. I love finding each student's own learning style to tailor the experience, and I encourage my students to make their own decisions about musical expression (with plenty of guidance, of course!).

In my work as a performer I have played with orchestras all over the world, from the South London Sinfonia to the Bombay Chamber Orchestra. My musical life is full of variety, and I think that the experiences I've had as a musician make me a creative and thoughtful teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***

I wouldn't call myself strict, but I do have high standards. I expect my students to put in the work at home, so that we can get the most out of lesson time, but I think that my expectations are realistic. After all, we all have busy lives, and even if you haven't had time to prepare we can always have a productive lesson.

We will learn simple tunes in the very first lesson, and I will always balance technical exercises with fun. (Though I do think a lot of exercises are fun too!) After a few months we will have a solid foundation of music theory and will have developed your music reading abilities considerably. We will have worked on a great technical foundation of scales and exercises, so that your fingers won't fail you. We will also be delving in to longer and more complex tunes, and considering the possibility of some form of casual public or in-home performance, for you to show your family and friends what you've learned!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instruments and music.

My approach is completely tailored to your individual needs. However, you can expect to focus on scales, etudes, solo repertoire, and perhaps even some more non-traditional fare, if you like (e.g. pop music, improvisation, etc.)! A focus is always given to developing and refining technique, creating supported tone production, and being as musically expressive as possible.

About Rachel
My primary goal as a teacher is to make music a very enjoyable and (hopefully) invaluable part of your life! We will work together in a way that best suits your unique needs and tastes. I'm happy to teach oboe, music theory, or any other general music subjects, as needed. I have taught students of varying ages and backgrounds for several years, and am comfortable teaching in a wide variety of settings.

My son said he learned a lot of knowledge about oboe today. She's very patience and nice. Now I know how pretty an oboe can sound! :)

I have never played a wind instrument before so it takes a lot of patience and guidance just to make a sound of any kind on the oboe. But now after 1 lesson with Bhavai I can actually play a melody or 2. She's a very good teacher.

I am a freshman at UCLA with my main instrument as oboe! Please check out my profile for more info about me :)

About Ashley
Hi! My name is Ashley. I am 18 years old and am a freshman at UCLA. I am studying Music Education with oboe as my main instrument. I also play clarinet in the UCLA Marching Band. I have been playing clarinet for 9 years and oboe for 3. For reference, I do also play English Horn and Bass Clarinet. I joined band in 5th grade and absolutely fell in love with it. Over time, I realized I also am very passionate about teaching people. Therefore, I decided to study music education. My goal is to become a high school band/orchestra director. My background with teaching includes working at a daycare du
ring my senior year of high school, being in music leadership all 4 years of high school, and teaching music and other subjects to my little brother! (He's 7 years old) I also was principle oboe for two years in my youth orchestra, Civic Youth Orchestra. Honestly, I am joining this website so that I can earn some money because I am paying for my own college education, and also to improve my teaching skills. I thought that this was a perfect option so that I can make money doing what I love to do. Thank you!

My daughter just started clarinet. I was unsure whether online lessons would work for a beginner, but they have! They are easy to schedule, easy because you don't leave your home, and they are working well. Ashley is knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and patient. My daughter has progressed very well in just a month of lessons. Ashley is very supportive, which is needed when starting a new instrument.

As a trumpet player, I am well-versed in music. I have sat in on a couple lessons, and I am very pleased with Ashley's teaching technique and approach. My daughter loves her, too. I would certainly recommend Ashley as a teacher.
