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!!

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.

My lessons are a great way to learn to play the oboe, be ready to perform and work towards your musical goals. Each student has different instructional needs to grow into the best musician they can be. I enjoy working with beginners as well as advanced students preparing for auditions and competitions. Lessons are a balance between fundamentals, pieces, etudes and having fun. Students get to learn standard repertoire as well as fun pieces like Frozen and Harry Potter!  Lessons allow me to touch up reeds from week to week to ensure they play well and last as long as possible. Learning any instrument can be difficult but with lessons it can be fun!

I am working primarily in Westchester area.

Veroslav is the consummate piano teacher--dedicated, patient, caring and encouraging. He has been teaching my nine and six year old children for the past year and a half and they have made significant progress under his tutelage. He is firm and exacting, but also kind and praising, when praise is due. Veroslav has an individualized approach to teaching—he is able to connect with children and tailor his teaching style to the temperament and aptitude of each child. Veroslav chooses pieces of classical and contemporary music that would not only be enjoyed by his students but would teach them particular skills. His lessons include a wide diversity of skill development through level appropriate performance and practice books. We are extremely happy that Veroslav has been our children's piano teacher and are looking forward to working with him in the years to come.

We’re very happy we found Veroslav! He’s friendly, and patient, and very knowledgeable and proficient. Kids love his lessons, and I can see the progress already (we started in October). Would definitely recommend him!

Hi! Welcome to my studio!

I have studied and played the oboe for 12 years. I received a B.A. in Oboe Performance from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory in 2020.
Oboe lessons with me look different depending on the student's needs and skill levels!

Oboe can be a challenging instrument to learn, I am passionate about providing an enriching, fun, learning experience for my students!
I hope to bring joy others lives through music!

I am comfortable with all skill levels. I also have experience with reed making, which is something we can discuss introducing into lessons as well if appropriate.

My curriculum varies based on the student, but includes music theory, ear training, solfege, and improvisation! I look forward to hearing from you!

"Grace is very friendly and easy to work with. At first, I was anxious to have my son take lessons online but Grace gives great explanations during lessons and is very interactive even though she is not present in person. I’ve heard improvements in my son’s tone and technique in just a few lessons. I would definitely recommend Grace as a teacher.

For reference to those in similar situations, my son is a high school student with 3 years of prior oboe experience.

Please disregard my previous review, there was an internet error that caused it to prematurely submit."
