Sophia, my six year old, had her first lesson this evening with Matthew. He was extremely attentive and understood very quickly where she was level-wise and was able to tailor a lesson without hesitation. She really enjoyed her time and I think she got a lot out of it. She can't wait for next week.

I started teaching oboe while finishing my bachelor's degree, and have found it to be incredibly rewarding. I love sharing my knowledge, helping my students advance and find even greater enjoyment playing. I feel very fortunate because as a regularly performing musician, I have the opportunity to immerse myself in many styles of music. Though it is incredibly important to learn the basics of oboe, and to become educated in the classics, expanding one's pallet with pop, jazz and world-music, for example, may also come into play.

During lessons we'll focus on technique building exercises, pieces from the standard oboe repertoire, and will often play duets together. If you are in school and would like to bring your band/orchestra music to lessons, feel free!

Since reeds are such an important part of being an oboe player, I teach reed adjustments for students playing at an intermediate level, and for advanced students, reed making from scratch.

My philosophy is that music is ...

About Alison
Thank you for visiting my profile!

As a professional musician, I have played in various ensembles including orchestras, opera companies, wind ensembles, chamber groups, musicals and more. The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO), presenting 3-5 concerts a year, has been my orchestral home since 2013 and I have had the privilege of playing principal oboe with them all throughout.

As a music educator I have years of experience teaching privately and in classrooms, for individuals and groups. I craft lessons to the needs and interests of each student, to ensure they are getting the most out of our time together. Many of my students enjoy, for example, video game and TV show music - so, these pieces are some of the repertoire we'll work on together. My goals as a teacher are to instill proper playing technique, guide how to
shape the music, establish good practice habits, and above all find ways to connect students with the music they're studying. At the end of the day, we play music because it's fun!

Degrees:
Master's in Music Performance, NYU
Bachelor's in Music Education, The College of New Jersey

Students should own/rent their instrument, assigned methods book(s)/sheet music, reeds, reed soaking container (for oboe), a music stand, neck strap (saxes)

This instrument may sound like a duck at first but with a little instruction and practice can be a beautiful instrument. This is also great if you are looking for a scholarship to either high school or college.

About Theresa
I am a former instrumental music teacher in the Catholic school system. I have been teaching in some way, shape or form for the past 20 years. My methods of teaching vary depending on the student and what they need to succeed. I make myself available between lessons via text, phone and email for questions regarding the lesson. Please let me know if you have issues with animals, I can put them in another part of the house. I have both cats and a dog. All of which are friendly.

My grandson said it was a great lesson. And he told his dad he had fun. I now know that I will either buy a keyboard or a piano so that he can continue his lessons and practice. Thanks for invoking this type of enthusiasm into my little guy. I hope this is the beginning of more to come.

With 10 years of teaching experience, I specialize in working with students of all ages and abilities. Lessons incorporate music theory, technique, and lyrical expression. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I hold a Master's Degree in Oboe Performance from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University, Long Beach. During my studies I studied with Carolyn Hove and Humbert Lucarelli.

About Grace
Grace has extensive experience teaching private and group lessons, including lessons in Piano, English Horn and reed making. Her students have gone on to win scholarships and place in honor orchestras. Currently, her students hold the top spots in nTyme's (North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble) Chamber Orchestra, as well as Honor Bands and Youth Orchestra across the country.

Locally, Grace has performed with the Dana Point Symphony, Symphony Irvine, as well as other groups around Southern California. Previously, she was a long time member of the Cheshire Symphony.

Whether you choose to take lessons online or in your home, I strive to make each lesson engaging, informative, and fun! Students are expected to practice in-between lessons and come to lessons prepared with their instrument and music. I also encourage students to bring
any music that they're interested in learning to their lessons.

**Every Other Week Lessons**
Due to current lesson demand, I'm not able to accept new students interested in every other week lessons. The only exception will be if you are able to fill the off week of a current every other week student. Please contact me before booking lessons for a current list of available spots. Spots are available on a first come, first come basis, and are subject to change at any time. This applies to requests for both online and in-person lessons.

**Group Lessons**
I don't offer traditional group lessons, as I've found they slow down the progress of both students and therefore aren't cost effective. Arrangements can be made for back to back lessons instead. Please contact me before booking lessons.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, and I can't wait to meet you!

About Terry K.

Close

I am a professional oboist with forty years teaching experience as well as a DMA degree. I help students learn to play the oboe with a beautiful sound, a complete, effective technique, and a feeling of ease while performing. Because of my outstanding teaching ability and extensive experience, I am able to show students how to really master the challenging areas of oboe playing, such as embouchure, breath support, articulation and reeds. I also work with students on developing their unique qualities as creative musicians, through an understanding of phrasing, note grouping and experience of improvisation.

About Terry
As a professional oboist, I have performed with the Bach Aria Group, Lazar Gosman's Tchaikovsky Orchestra, and the Manhatten Chamber Orchestra and Choir of Sacred Music. I am currently a member of the North Shore Pro Musica chamber music group and the Phoenix Trio. During the past forty-five years, I have free lanced in the New York metropolitan area and in Boston, including performances of symphonies, operas, Bach cantatas and chamber music works. I can be heard playing the English horn and the duduk (Armenian oboe) with David Darling and the Adagio Ensemble on the CD "In Tune", released by The Relaxation Company and the oboe and duduk with the improvisation group "Hidden City", on the CD "Another Country". I have also released a CD of original solo duduk music titled "Duduk Creations", which is available on Amazon and cdbaby.

I am
a graduate of the Musicianship and Leadership program with Music For People, an organization devoted to music improvisation. For the past ten years, I have led improvisation workshops at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I am also the director of the Adult Chamber Music Program
at SUNYSB.

I received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in oboe performance from SUNY Stony Brook in 1996 where I studied with Steve Taylor, and a Masters of Music degree in oboe performance from SUNYSB in 1977, where I studied with Ronald Roseman. I received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1975 and attended Amherst College from 1970 to 1972.

I find both oboe playing and teaching to be deeply inspiring. I feel that playing music is one of life's most wonderful experiences. It's uplifting and meaningful
to me when my students improve and play beautifully.

Experienced teacher of 5 years. Learn to play music you like while improving on the oboe! If you are interested in reed-making I will customize my approach to fit any level. Current Master’s student at UC College-Conservatory of Music.

About Clare
I am a professional oboist and reed maker. I graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Music in Oboe and am currently working on my Master of Music in Oboe at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

I have been teaching private lessons for 5 years and I currently sell 30-40 oboe reeds a month. I am happy to sell reeds to my students and help them learn to make their own.

I teach oboe students of all ages and proficiencies. I believe music should be fun, whether pursued as a career or a hobby. I help students release tension and facilitate ease in playing in order to find that fun.

In addition to oboe, I am studying yoga and the Alexander Technique. I plan to become certified in both in the coming years. Regardless of your goals with the oboe, I will help you develop a solid foundation to become a versat
ile player.

I believe that musicality can be taught as well as technique and will work with you to create a routine that best fits your aspirations as an oboist.

I look forward to meeting you!

About Dianne R.

Close

I have been teaching oboe for 20 years and have had students of many nationalities. The lessons will have a variety of materials and can be custom-made to meet the student’s needs and goals. We would study scales, etudes, solos, chamber music and composition. Oboe techniques such as vibrato, special fingering, tonguing, musicality, and suggestions for reeds would also be a part of the lesson. If possible, I love to play duets or at least demonstrate concepts and ideas. If the students would like to play a particular style or music, they just need to let me know.

About Dianne
I have both a bachelor and masters in music. I have been very fortunate to have amazing teachers: John Mack (Cleveland Orchestra), Pam Pecha (Cleveland Orchestra), Louis Rosenblatt (Philadelphia Orchestra) and Adrian Gnam (Mercer University). Playing oboe has allowed me to play in many orchestras throughout the world and make friends with many different nationalities. Music is really the universal language. I have performed with the Guangzhou Baroque Orchestra, National Symphony of Abu Dhabi, Jakarta Concert Orchestra, Bruxelles Orchestra, Canton Symphony (USA) and played in quintets and trios in the US, China, Taiwan and Abu Dhabi. While most of my playing has been classical, I also play jazz whenever I could and one of friends nicknamed my playing, “J-Oboe.” While most of my students did not pursue music degrees, one of students was a
ccepted and graduated from the Eastman School of Music.
