About Ali
Ali has had music in her life since she was in the crib. She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland." She is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music and earned her BM in Music Business and Vocal Performance cum laude studying under Magi Scott, Jeff Ramsey, Jerome Kyles, and Carolyn Escoffrey, Donna McElroy, Livingston Taylor, Joan Lader, and Charlie Sorrent

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning the techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play
in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

About Alison M.

Brooklyn, NY
View Full Profile

I started teaching oboe while finishing my bachelor's degree, and have found it to be incredibly rewarding. I love sharing my knowledge, helping my students advance and find even greater enjoyment playing. I feel very fortunate because as a regularly performing musician, I have the opportunity to immerse myself in many styles of music. Though it is incredibly important to learn the basics of oboe, and to become educated in the classics, expanding one's pallet with pop, jazz and world-music, for example, may also come into play.

During lessons we'll focus on technique building exercises, pieces from the standard oboe repertoire, and will often play duets together. If you are in school and would like to bring your band/orchestra music to lessons, feel free!

Since reeds are such an important part of being an oboe player, I teach reed adjustments for students playing at an intermediate level, and for advanced students, reed making from scratch.

My philosophy is that music is ...

About Alison
Thank you for visiting my profile!

As a professional musician, I have played in various ensembles including orchestras, opera companies, wind ensembles, chamber groups, musicals and more. The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO), presenting 3-5 concerts a year, has been my orchestral home since 2013 and I have had the privilege of playing principal oboe with them all throughout.

As a music educator I have years of experience teaching privately and in classrooms, for individuals and groups. I craft lessons to the needs and interests of each student, to ensure they are getting the most out of our time together. Many of my students enjoy, for example, video game and TV show music - so, these pieces are some of the repertoire we'll work on together. My goals as a teacher are to instill proper playing technique, guide how to
shape the music, establish good practice habits, and above all find ways to connect students with the music they're studying. At the end of the day, we play music because it's fun!

Degrees:
Master's in Music Performance, NYU
Bachelor's in Music Education, The College of New Jersey

*** Equipment ***
Students should own/rent their instrument, assigned methods book(s)/sheet music, reeds, reed soaking container (for oboe), a music stand, neck strap (saxes)

*** Specialties ***
Beginner to advanced students, note reading, phrase shaping, aural skills through "repeat after me" and playing together.

***Lessons Offered***

Flute
Clarinet
Tenor Sax
Alto Sax

About Letha H.

Close
Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

Oboe students receive support for bands and ensemble work with solid technic and exercises. I can provide coaching for performances and competitions.

About Letha
With a performance degree from the University of Georgia, teaching certification from Georgia State and over 25 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of instructional resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons include a warmup, music theory work, vocal or instrumental technique and then a vast selection of song repertoire to support new ideas in both technique and theory. Students are directed to watch or listen to examples of master performances in their field of studies. Clear weekly goals are made between lessons and I am always encouraging! Whatever life throws at you during the week doesn't have to stop your studies cold- we will come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a small Protools setup with microphones and a Kurzwell keyboard. I
like to be able to go online for some resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I regularly use the internet in lessons as well as standard published educational texts.

*** Specialties ***
I have been told that I am especially good at helping people make the jump from playing by rote to reading from the page. In vocal instruction, I am familiar with three schools of technique: the psycho-imagery school, the "anatomical" school, and the Italian "open throat" approach. My background in acting also contributes basic vocal projection techniques to vocal training. I am comfortable with all genres of music, including pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, jazz and opera. In instrumental studies, I am a woodwind doubler, reading fluently and transposing on-the-spot . As a jazz and gospel artist I improvise primarily on the flute and saxophone. My piano skills are equivalent to a second-year college piano major. I can improvise accompaniments as well as read piano scores. In addition to being a certified teacher in Georgia, I attained national certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004.

My daughter has truly enjoyed having Letha as a clarinet teacher. She has been able to strengthen and improve my daughter's tone, scales, posture, transitions between low to higher notes, and overall technique. This has led to her improvement and enjoyment of the school band. Letha's teaching style has fit well including providing positive feedback on the spot. 'Having Letha come to our house is also a great benefit to our schedule.

About Thomas W.

Close
Downingtown, PA

View Full Profile

I can help beginning students on oboe learn the basics.

About Thomas
Thomas J. W. is an active music teacher, composer, adjudicator, and clinician in the greater Philadelphia area. He has over fifteen years experience as a concert band director, marching band director, jazz improvisation instructor, choral director, private instructor, and marching drill writer. His directing career has included small rural band programs, small metro programs, large high-achieving suburban programs, and non-profit youth bands. In addition to his band compositions, he also has over forty unpublished vocal arrangements to his credit, most written for use with collegiate men's a cappella groups. Thomas taught over 600 online and local private music lessons in 2016.

Thomas has a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from The Pennsylvania State University. He holds a teaching certificate in the states of Pennsylvania
and New Jersey and has taught at the secondary level in both states. In addition to both instrumental and choral ensembles at Penn State, Thomas was a student leader in the Penn State Blue Band and a member of the brass section of the Cadets of Bergen County Drum and Bugle Corps in 1993 and 1994. He served as an Associate Director of the Warren Junior Military Band of Youngstown, Ohio from 1995 to 2005. He also served as a visual staff member for the renowned North Penn Marching Knights of Lansdale, PA for one season in 2004.

He is a current adjudicator with Drum Corps International and Cavalcade of Bands. He is a member of MENC, PMEA, NJMEA, ASCAP, CASA, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and the National Band Association. He appeared in the Marquis Who's Who Among American Educators in 2004 and 2005, an honor rarely bestowed upon teachers, as students who appear in the Who's Who Among American High School Students must nominate them. He currently is a music teacher at the Center for Performing and Fine Arts of the PA Leadership Charter School in West Chester, PA and resides in Downingtown, PA with his wife and two sons.

Thomas will happily work with students on the autism spectrum or students with ADD.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of each student. If a student is involved in school music ensembles, we will work with their lesson books from school in addition to material outside of the books, including SmartMusic, Noteflight, and teacher-created materials. We will focus on building proper tone production and individual technique - something that often is difficult to learn in a large ensemble setting.

I am capable of starting a beginner student on any band instrument including percussion, any classical string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass), and piano. I can begin a student on drum set and work with them through their first method book, but I would then recommend they find a specialized drum set teacher after a period of six to twelve months.

For advanced students, I work from selected conservatory etude books on developing advanced skills and can work with students on audition pieces for honors bands/orchestras or college auditions.

My lessons are a half-hour once a week, with the option of working for 45 minutes or 60 minutes.

I really recommend Carl. I am an adult beginner with guitar....and had dabbled here and there without making much progress. When I started working with Carl, he was able to give me the very next thing that I needed to work on to get to the next step. Each week I have been able to progress and I am delighted with the improvements so far.

Carl is patient, friendly, and very knowledgeable. If you can snag some lessons with him, it will be well worth your investment!

I have some experience with oboe in the wind ensemble. In my class, you will learn the basics of the double reed, position, breathing, fingerings, and scales. We will also have fun together with other music pieces within your level. Looking forward to see you!

About Wankun
Hi, I'm Wankun, a college student at CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I've many diverse interests, from music to science. I believe that everybody can do both with a balance, and so far, I'm loving it.

Music was always part of my life. I started to play piano when I was 6 and I've advanced it when I was in high school. Still, there are always room for improvement so I'm still practicing to this day. After I moved to the US I start learning other instruments too. In high school I played oboe in wind ensemble and flute in marching band. I always loved hanging out with our school band, just enjoying music in a friendly, cooperative environment. I love music so much, that I listen to songs every day, and I'm planning to do a music minor.

Math and science is another part of my life that I enjoy. As a kid, I was always intereste
d in science documentaries. In school I was the top students in math and science. I learn really quickly so I got ahead of the subjects. I passed the AP text for Chemistry in my sophomore year and the Calculus AB text in my junior year. Currently, I'm studying for Forensic Science at my College.

I don't have a lot of teaching experience, but I believe my ability to share my knowledge with others. I love helping people and I understand that learning can sometimes be overwhelming and boring. So I always love to teach with some twists, we can both enjoy the session and also complete our goal: to advance your knowledge.

Thank you for being interested in me to be your teacher. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I am new to taking lessons with Wankun. I took lessons about a decade ago but had to curtail them. So, I was nervous about starting up again. She calmed my fears with her very professional and fun way of teaching. She is prompt, patient, and effective. I highly recommend her.

When I first knew Wankun, I was amazed by her passion and talent in music. I know for sure that she is a great pianolist, violinist and a lot others. It is enjoyable and pleasing to hear beautiful rhythm coming out from her fingers. If you have the same passion and want to explore the splendid world of music, you should definitely take her classes!

Hello! My name is Shala and I am a lover of ALL things oboe! :)

I have been playing for 12+ years and it is one of my biggest passions in life.
I've had the great opportunity to be able to attend a music academy high school where I focused on oboe, then I pursued oboe in college. I recently attained my Bachelor's of Music Performance on Oboe.

Some of my teaching focuses are of breathing, tone, and vibrato. However, each lesson will be tailored to the individual's needs. All ages and all skill levels are welcome. I look forward to working with you!

Pursuing it further, I am now a recent graduate with a Bachelor's of Music, emphasis on oboe.
