I'm an "mature" student taking lessons many years after not playing and Grace is very kind and patient and helpful with her suggestions. I'm enjoying my lessons with her very much!

Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
Linda Moore
A great first lesson even though my oboe didn’t work. I learned a lot of fingerings and about reed making. Great fun.
Eleni
We feel very fortunate to have Rina M. as our daughter’s music instructor, for oboe and guitar. Our daughter’s musical ability and knowledge has grown exponentially, and her music teacher at school has praised her understanding of music / music theory, most of which she learned since working with Mrs. Rina. We are so happy to have found TakeLessons, as this is how we were introduced to Mrs. Rina. She is very special to us, and we highly recommend her!

I like to begin with the Essential Elements series. I have had a lot of success with my beginners in this series. I also encourage my oboists to bring and play with a tuner. Having a great ear for pitch is absolutely necessary for playing the oboe.

Lisa was wonderful. Very patient, detailed explanations, and went above and beyond. I’ve felt intimidated by sewing and even the process of setting up my machine but she was able to illuminate that process. This lesson was worth every penny and I’m looking forward to the next one.

"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."
