Private Oboe Teacher

I teach beginner oboe. I can help students learn to read music, play with good tone and technique, learn fingerings, and play from a book or school band music.

About Tina

Hello!

I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I was a high school music teacher & band director in the Philadelphia area for 7 years, and I now live in Miami, FL where I am working on a doctoral degree in conducting. I also work as a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lesson specifics are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect

things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

Online lessons are a wonderful option! I am flexible with scheduling and allow changes up to 24-hours before a scheduled lesson. My home studio has chairs, music stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

Tina has provided our daughter 11 year old daughter with outstanding lessons as a beginning trumpet player this past summer! Not only was our daughter able to skip beginning band and be placed into the more advance concert band with the 1st trumpets, she received an invite from her well known director of bands to participate in the school’s Big Band. Our daughter is quickly improving on her playing skills.
Tina will always be remembered as the primary influence behind her aspirations to play the trumpet the right way!

Private Oboe Teacher

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!

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

Veroslav is beyond amazing. He is knowledgeable, prompt, courteous, and very professional. I will gladly recommend his services to everyone I know. My daughter has learned so much from him. My family and I call him our trophy piano instructor!

Veroslav is a tremendously patient expert piano instrument for my two children, ages 6 and 12. He has a gentle way of guiding kids who may feel shy. I’m just blown away by my children’s progress in piano skills in just a couple of months, but also see how much their self-confidence has grown through doing well at something completely new! Absolutely recommend Veroslav, and we feel so lucky to have been connected to with him!

About Amber

I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.

I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

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!

About Alyssa

Hi there, I'm so glad you're here!

I am a supportive and encouraging teacher willing to teach all ages and abilities. It is my firm belief that music is for everyone!

I am currently pursuing my Master of Arts in Teaching at Rhode Island College. I studied Oboe Performance at Longy School of Music for a year before decidingto pursue education further (I love teaching too much!.) I completed my undergraduate work at Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon privately. I am currently on the private lesson roster for two public schools in the area, and teach both double-reeded instruments. I have successfully helped young students prepare for and audition into district and all state level ensembles.

I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about pl

aying oboe & bassoon.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Private Oboe Teacher

Experienced teacher of 5 years. Learn to play music you like while improving on the oboe! If you are interested in reed-making I will customize my approach to fit any level. Current Master’s student at UC College-Conservatory of Music.

About Clare

I am a professional oboist and reed maker. I graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Music in Oboe and am currently working on my Master of Music in Oboe at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

I have been teaching private lessons for 5 years and I currently sell 30-40 oboe reeds a month. I am happy to sell reeds to my students and help them learn to make their own.

I teach oboe students of all ages and proficiencies. I believe music should be fun, whether pursued as a career or a hobby. I help students release tension and facilitate ease in playing in order to find that fun.

In addition to oboe, I am studying yoga and the Alexander Technique. I plan to become certified in both in the coming years. Regardless of your goals with the oboe, I will help you develop a solid foundation to become a versat

ile player.

I believe that musicality can be taught as well as technique and will work with you to create a routine that best fits your aspirations as an oboist.

I look forward to meeting you!

Private Oboe Teacher

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 throughout the world and make friends with many different nationalities. Music is really the universal language. I have performed with the Guangzhou Baroque Orchestra, National Symphony of Abu Dhabi, Jakarta Concert Orchestra, Bruxelles Orchestra, Canton Symphony (USA) and played in quintets and trios in the US, China, Taiwan and Abu Dhabi. While most of my playing has been classical, I also play jazz whenever I could and one of friends nicknamed my playing, “J-Oboe.” While most of my students did not pursue music degrees, one of students was a

ccepted and graduated from the Eastman School of Music.

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.
