Angela is a great teacher. She was very patient and helped my daughter gain confidence with Oboe. My daughter made measurable progress in just 10 classes she took. Angela also recommended a good reed to purchase. We will be back soon for additional classes. Thanks

Angela is so great to work with! She's very kind and patient, and the environment created is very comfortable. She has really helped me improve my technique and I've also learned new skills quite quickly. Her understanding of music has definitely helped me dive deeper into pieces and make them more musical.

Overall, Angela is a phenomenal teacher and I've had great experiences with her!

Angela is awesome. My daughter needed to work toward some specific performance goals and Angela was able to give her just the help she needed. She was very flexible and easy to work with.

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.

"Our daughter is taking Oboe and Piano lessons with Lisa. Lisa has taught her more than she has learned from anyone else (including her instructors at school), she is always encouraging our daughter to reach a little higher than her current level, and interested in the music she wants to learn to play instead of just the lesson book. As a parent that knows very little about music, Lisa has always gone out of her way to help us with any questions we have about buying instruments or just in general."

"Bonnie did a great job with my daughter. She had just taken up the oboe during the school year and we wanted to keep up her skills during the summer. Bonnie was great helping my daughter learn additional oboe techniques that will help her when she returns to school. I was very impressed with Takelessons and the convenience of doing lessons in our own home. Bonnie was very flexible with our summer schedule too."
