Private Oboe Teacher

*Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, please note I am only accepting students for online lessons until further notice*

I have 10 years of experience teaching oboe and customize lesson plans for my students. I focus on listening, musicality, and technique. My lesson plans include a warm up geared to establish a solid daily routine, technical studies, a piece from oboe literature, and sight reading duets. I also teach reed making and recommend students learn to make their own reeds if they intend to play oboe beyond high school. I believe that good, new reeds are critical to a student’s success-both for tone and embouchure development.

About Linnea

I am a freelance oboist, reed maker, and music teacher in the Seattle area. My teaching studio is currently based in Everett. I have eight years of teaching experience and love working with students of all ages. My primary instrument is oboe, but I also have a passion for teaching beginning viol

Linnea is very patient and knowledgeable about her instrument. I truly appreciate her working with my daughter on not only her orchestra lessons, but with strengthening her sight reading, how to hold a bow properly, and more. All in 3 lessons. My daughter has already improved. Thank you!

Private Oboe Teacher

I am a double reed (oboe and bassoon) specialist and have played both for over 16 years. I tutor the double reed students at Hughson High School and Ross Middle School during the school year. Proper oboe embouchure, technique and selection and adjustment of reeds is something most public school teachers overlook. Trust a specialist!

I teach oboe primarily through the tried and true Rubank method and the Ferling studies. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed adjustment, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for oboe to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle

Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay wi

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Private Oboe Teacher

I am a professional performing oboist and have been teaching private lessons for more than 10 years. I received a Bachelors, Masters, and Artist Diploma in Oboe, and have performed with orchestras around the world. I am passionate about teaching and love helping my students to grow. Beginning lessons focus on breathing, support, and embouchure so that we have a solid foundation on which to build. I like to combine work on fundamentals with learning music specific to the student's preferences. I am flexible and tailor each lesson to the student. Looking forward to working with you!

Justine is a very fun and caring teacher to work with. I've been working with her for around seven months and have greatly improved my skills as a musician!
Kaia
Justine has really helped me throughout this year, especially since it’s my first year and I had a hard time getting used to the instrument. Shes really good with teaching and has continuously helped me to learn new things.
Jason Locher - Medina Bands
I am the Director of Bands for the Medina City School System and I serve over 800+ band students from 6th grade through 12th grade. Justine has been teaching oboe lessons for the oboe students in our band program for a number of years now.

She is an extremely pleasant and polite individual to work with professionally. All of the students I have spoken with regarding their lessons with Justine cannot sing her praises enough!! In their lessons Justine is kind and abundantly knowledgeable. Justine provides sound pedagogical advice rooted in her deep understanding of music and her own outstanding musicianship!!!

Oboe students are very fortunate to study with someone like Justine. I know as a band director, I am very fortunate to have such a person supplementing our student's music learning.

Online Oboe Teacher

I have been playing oboe for 14 years! I have studied under Linda Strommen during my undergraduate degree at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I am fortunate to have been able to perform in various ensembles across the world, including winning a resident principal oboe of the Freiburger Studenten-Orchester for the 2014-2015 season. I am able to work on fundamental concepts such as technique and music theory, as well as develop a musical concept and improve the musical creativity. Together, we can improve your overall proficiency on your oboe, as well as prepare for any audition and ensemble you’re interested in! If interested, we can even arrange time to collaborate and just read through some duets together. Let’s begin this journey together!

Online Oboe Teacher

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.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Catherine
I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Online Oboe Teacher

As a teacher my goal is to inspire my students to think creatively and analytically about oboe and music in general. Students can apply these skills not only to music performance and education, but also to any other field the student chooses to pursue. I use music as a vehicle to teach my students to think perceptively, to question and analyze situations, and ultimately to imagine, create, and innovate.

I tailor each lesson to the individual student so that each one can develop a unique musical voice. While I assign every student exercises, etudes, and solo repertoire to address their particular needs, each student begins their journey as an oboist by establishing a base of fundamental skills. A steady diet of embouchure building exercises, long tones, and scales creates the foundation of a successful oboist.

About Clara

I am a versatile performer and educator who engages audiences with performances in solo, chamber music, and orchestral settings throughout the greater San Diego area.

Clara was such an invaluable teacher for our beginning oboe student in middle school. Her easy ability to teach technique on such a complicated instrument was so important. Our daughter quickly gained confidence and skill and now has such beautiful sound as a sophomore. We highly recommend Ms. Blood for a great start!
Sally
Amazing, fun, and encouraging! I had a great first lesson
Janet
Clara taught oboe to my middle schooler from 6th to 8th grade. He had no experience and she had him playing in school recitals, the jazz band, and UIL competitions! Oboe is hard and takes work to make progress. Clara is patient and gets along great with students and parents! we saw her perform a few times and it was amazing!!!
