A great first lesson even though my oboe didn’t work. I learned a lot of fingerings and about reed making. Great fun.

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!

Whether you are starting out on oboe, switching from another instrument, preparing for an audition, or simply looking to brush up on your skills, I can help you reach your oboe goals!

All lessons are customized to your interests and needs. My teaching experience ranges from complete beginners to advanced students. We can work on everything from the fundamentals and etudes to advanced recital and audition repertoire! For those looking to branch out, we can also cover instrument adjustment, English horn and reed-making in the lessons.

Great reeds are vital for oboists and I can help with buying advice or learning to make your own reeds! I can also adjust your reeds or sell personalized reeds in person or via mail.

For students wishing to broaden their musical insights, I also can incorporate music theory and history into the lessons - subjects that I teach at the college level.

I am a professional oboist residing in New Orleans. I perform with the Louisiana Philharmonic, ...

Amazing Player...Even Better Teacher.

From my first lesson with Bonnie, she opened me up to a new realm of musicianship and technique that I had never experienced before. She re-ignited a passion in my music that I was beginning to lose. I am forever grateful to her for this.

Bonnie is a hundred percent devoted to music, her playing and her teaching. One of the things I love most about her is that she seems to know everything about the flute, yet she is always striving to learn more. And if, every once in a while, there is something she doesn't know, she investigates. She finds an answer, contemplates it, and teaches me.

Bonnie is also a genuinely caring person who is entirely invested in her students. She often e-mails me after my lesson to tell me something that she had thought about relating to my lesson, proving that she is always thinking about ways to help me in my playing.

Bonnie continues to challenge me and encourage me in all my playing - she truly makes me feel that with enough practice and determination there is nothing I can't play. She even helped me attain a 100 on my all-state level piece this year. However, the score is less meaningful than the feeling I had after I performed that day. I knew that I was playing on a level I had never imagined - all due to Bonnie's inspiring me to always be better and her total confidence in me, not only as a flute player, but also as a musician.

Bonnie's musicianship and playing is unparalleled, her teaching style unique and engaging and, once you get to know her, she is quite the comedian. I am truly lucky to have her as my teacher.
Mary Ellen B.
An engaging and wonderful instructor

I have been extremely fortunate to have had Bonnie McAlvin teaching flute, piccolo and music theory to my older daughter for nine years and flute to my younger daughter for four. She is an enthusiastic and energetic teacher that inspires a great love of musicianship in her students. My older daughter is a first chair flutist in a wind ensemble and plays with a prestigious children's orchestra entirely due to the patient and thorough instruction she has received from Bonnie. It is a great blessing to have musically talented children but an even bigger blessing to have an instructor who can give them the skills and encouragement to achieve excellence. My older daughter is working towards attending a conservatory for college and the younger daughter fully expects to have music be part of her education going forward. This is entirely due to Bonnie's influence and guidance. We could not be more pleased. My girls love their lessons with Bonnie and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

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.

Clare is not only a wonderful oboist but a wonderful oboe teacher. She takes the time to put technique first which made a huge difference in my playing. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!

Clare is a wonderful oboist who plays with emotion and that same energy transfers into her teaching.
