Dianne R.


Bgcheck Background Checked

I have been teaching oboe for 20 years and have had students of many nationalities. The lessons will have a variety of materials and can be custom-made to meet the student’s needs and goals. We would study scales, etudes, solos, chamber music and composition. Oboe techniques such as vibrato, special fingering, tonguing, musicality, and suggestions for reeds would also be a part of the lesson. If possible, I love to play duets or at least demonstrate concepts and ideas. If the students would like to play a particular style or music, they just need to let me know.

About Dianne

I have both a bachelor and masters in music. I have been very fortunate to have amazing teachers: John Mack (Cleveland Orchestra), Pam Pecha (Cleveland Orchestra), Louis Rosenblatt (Philadelphia Orchestra) and Adrian Gnam (Mercer University). Playing oboe has allowed me to play in many orchestras

October 11, 2019
Mrs. Salminen is, without a doubt, the best oboe teacher my child has ever had. Her outstanding professionalism, in-depth knowledge, contagious passion, resourcefulness, immense dedication, and extraordinary ability to build caring relationships make her the perfect music instructor. Mrs. Salminen has helped my daughter improve her dexterity with the instrument immensely by always inspiring her with kind words of encouragement and by setting an excellent example. She has gone the extra mile in finding engaging pieces to keep Natalia motivated, aiding us in purchasing the finest oboe possible within our budget, and making great recommendations about reeds.
Mrs. Salminen is not only an excellent teacher but an extraordinary human being.

My name is Carlin, concertmaster of the Guangzhou Baroque Orchestra. I had the privilege to collaborate with Dianne, both in the orchestra and as soloists. Her beautiful tone, impeccable intonation, combined with warm and easy going personality, made her a very popular person in the orchestra.

"Randy has been fantastic at helping this very classically-trained pianist break through the traditional structure of playing. Although I still have a long way to go, I am enjoying the adventure and learning process.He is incredibly patient and encouraging.

Thank you,'re terrific!"

"I am a novice guitar player who knew a few basic chords before enrolling with lessons from Chris. Since i had an elementary knowledge of playing, Chris asked some questions before we got started on what I was struggling with, and hurdles i was facing.

From there each successive lesson we attacked those weak areas of my play. I was able to get incrementally better each week from the advice and handouts he offered, overall elevating my ability to play dramatically.

Chris is a very down to earth guy - and despite being an excellent musician was not even a little pretentious in carefully explaining concepts that were basic, but that i needed to know.

Overall, Chris takes the time to very effectively communicate how you can improve your guitar skills, and if you put in the practice from his instruction - you'll see the results.

He's also a nice guy and very easy to talk to."
