Oboe:
A family of double reed woodwind musical instruments, they are usually made of wood, but there are also oboes made of synthetic materials. The Oboe is commonly used in concert bands, orchestras, chamber music, film music, in some genres of folk music, and as a solo instrument, and is occasionally heard in jazz, rock music, pop music, and popular music. I will begin by teaching the basics of breath control, apeture, fingering, the reed, notes, rhythms, reading, songs, theory, and soloing.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Music is an art form that I have a passion for and it is my goal for each student to find their passion with music in their own way. I can provide the tools and know-how to build a foundation of playing that will be enriching for you as my student - because it was the result of your own hard work and commitment. There are many sides to music and I am happy to work with whatever a student would like to play; be it a sonata, concerto, or ensemble work and even a pop song or two! I want to make my student's experience enjoyable and worthwhile. This is a safe space for you as my student to try new things without judgment or harsh criticism. This is your opportunity to set and reach your personal goals and artistic aspirations! I have the mastery and experience of playing in a variety of highly regarded positions both academically and professionally, and as a result of my own time working with world famous musicians. Finally, I understand music as a language that few can tap into, but all ...

Very satisfied with Andrew's support of my son's oboe classes. Andrew was patient and encouraging, which is exactly what my son needed. I was sorry that he moved an could no longer teach my son.

I have been teaching oboe lessons for seven years, and although the oboe is a difficult instrument, I believe you can learn to have a good sound early on with the right instruction! I am a professional oboist who loves sharing the fun of oboe with others. All experience levels are welcome and lessons will be catered to your needs and feedback on what you want to be able to play. I put a lot of emphasis on good tone, technique, sightreading, and some music theory. I really do look forward to working with you!

I strive for my lessons to be all about the student and tailoring them to your interests and needs! The oboe is a very exciting instrument and I hope that together we can discover ways for you to enjoy it. I am happy to help with general musical skills, oboe performance, and reed making. I have much experience preparing students for programs such as school programs, entrance placements, youth ensemble programs, and all-state ensembles.

I have a Master's Degree in Oboe Performance. Oboe is my main instrument. I can teach students how to make oboe reeds. I enjoy teaching beginning students proper embouchure, hand position, and proper breathing techniques. I teach the beginning student how to take care of their reed properly. I emphasize learning music fundamentals. Intermediate students learn their scales and arpeggios. We will look at various technique books and solos. Advanced students can get help with learning how to make reeds. I have found a platform that enables me to play duets with my students online.
