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 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 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.

Lisa was wonderful. Very patient, detailed explanations, and went above and beyond. I’ve felt intimidated by sewing and even the process of setting up my machine but she was able to illuminate that process. This lesson was worth every penny and I’m looking forward to the next one.

Private Oboe Teacher

Experienced oboist and musician with a Master's degree in Oboe Performance and I am able to teach a variety of concepts and tools to set you up for success. With thoughtful practice, sight-reading, and being able to extract the inner workings of music, you will have a more fulfilling experience playing oboe and listening to classical music. I've attended highly acclaimed universities such as the University of North Texas, where I received my Master's degree in Instrumental Performance, and playing principal oboe in the top orchestras and bands. I have a strong understanding of the process of making reeds, which is something I highly recommend for you to learn. And I have been taught several concepts, such as vibrato, double-tonguing, extended techniques, dynamic control, phrasing, blending sound with others, and even leadership skills to conduct sessions with your instrument section. I am highly familiar with what is expected as an oboist at any age or skill level, mastering etude ...

Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
Linda Moore
A great first lesson even though my oboe didn’t work. I learned a lot of fingerings and about reed making. Great fun.
Eleni
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!

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!

"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."

Dawn also writes detailed reports of every lesson, which is super helpful to remember everything in the lessons. She is quick to respond to any questions I ask her outside of the lessons."
