Kay is very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. She is very encouraging and never makes me feel dumb when I hit a sour note. (As a beginning beginner, that happens a lot!) I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time!

Private Oboe Teacher

I am a double reed (oboe and bassoon) specialist and have played both for over 16 years. I tutor the double reed students at Hughson High School and Ross Middle School during the school year. Proper oboe embouchure, technique and selection and adjustment of reeds is something most public school teachers overlook. Trust a specialist!

I teach oboe primarily through the tried and true Rubank method and the Ferling studies. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed adjustment, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for oboe to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle

Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay wi

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

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.

I loved my first lesson with Lisa!! She is so kind, patient, and fun!! I can't wait to continue lessons with her!
Madi W.
My daughter has recently completed her third lesson with Lisa online. My daughter said this about Lisa, “she is very chill and relaxed. She asks me what I want to learn. Mrs. Lisa asks me questions and doesn’t control the entire lesson with her own objectives. She is kind, funny and easy to get along with. She deserves a raise!” 😂😊 as a parent I am very please, happy and exited to find such a multi talented and skilled teacher for my daughter!!

When I started , all I knew was how to make the saxophone squeak. All it took was one lesson from Gordon for me to play basic notes harmoniously. I highly recommend signing up for a lesson!

Gordy's an incredible musician and very fun to do a lesson with. Highly recommend!

My teaching philosophy centers around you, the student! Learning oboe is a wonderful journey to embark upon and I am here to get you started. We will go over the fundamentals of oboe and music overall. But most importantly, we will focus on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to play a piece of music for your family? Perhaps work on making your very own reeds! I am excited to be your oboe teacher, and I can't wait to begin.

Both had very positive experience with her. Ms. Rina cares her students and knows how to motivate the kids. She is very responsible and always sends detailed comments for each class. We highly recommend her."
