Oboe:
A family of double reed woodwind musical instruments, they are usually made of wood, but there are also oboes made of synthetic materials. The Oboe is commonly used in concert bands, orchestras, chamber music, film music, in some genres of folk music, and as a solo instrument, and is occasionally heard in jazz, rock music, pop music, and popular music. I will begin by teaching the basics of breath control, apeture, fingering, the reed, notes, rhythms, reading, songs, theory, and soloing.

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

I strive for my lessons to be all about the student and tailoring them to your interests and needs! The oboe is a very exciting instrument and I hope that together we can discover ways for you to enjoy it. I am happy to help with general musical skills, oboe performance, and reed making. I have much experience preparing students for programs such as school programs, entrance placements, youth ensemble programs, and all-state ensembles.

Private Oboe Teacher

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 having 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.

My daughter is 5 and this is her first time having formal piano lessons. Ms. Masiello's experience teaching young students makes her classes highly interactive, fun and effective. I look forward to watching Hannah grow in skill and enjoyment.

Jill is an accomplished, professional instructor. She has patiently taught my child how to play the Oboe correctly. My child has dramatically improved with Jill being her instructor over the year.

"Clare could not be more supportive, patient, and willing to facilitate changes to schedules. If you are new to this instrument, or already proficient, you will have a nice experience under her instruction. I am an adult student, and I have unique challenges. She has accommodated me in a way that has motivated me to write this review without her asking me. That should tell you something."
