With over 10 years of teaching experience, I specialize in working with students of all ages and abilities. Whether you're starting off playing oboe, switching from another instrument, or getting back into playing after a break, I look forward to helping you reach your goals! Lessons incorporate music theory, technique, and lyrical expression. Students are welcome to bring school and audition music to lessons. If needed, students will be placed in an appropriate method book. I tend to use the Rubank series and the Barret Oboe Method, as well as level appropriate solo pieces. 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.

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. Please message me for schedule and availability prior to booking. Extended travel radius for WESTCHESTER

To become an oboist, it is important to not only learn the music, but to put a little bit of yourself into every note you play. Playing such a unique and beautiful instrument like the oboe is a joy that I look forward to experiencing with each of my students. Every oboe lesson is customized to the individual's desires and needs. Throughout lessons, we will work on basic fundamentals, repertoire, and musicianship. With over 6 years of teaching experience, I am confident that you will be playing in no time! I also specialize in reed-making, and love helping students with their reeds, as well as sell personalized reeds.

I have been playing and teaching oboe for over 35 years. Many of my students have gone on to play in universities with scholarships, but more importantly have developed a love of music. I was the founder and co-artistic director of an award winning chamber group having two on-going subscription series. Within the first few lessons you will be able to read musical notation, understand basic music theory, and play simple songs. Depending on your ability, I will choose the right method book for you. I love working with students of all ages and can't wait to meet you! My teaching style is relaxed, but highly structured. My former students made great advancements with my guidance. However, no advancement can be achieved without the student putting in the necessary time at home to practice their instrument.

I have been a public school music teacher for 30+ years. I am an optimistic, enthusiastic person, who will help you learn music reading in addition to music playing. I started on piano as a young child, and studied clarinet from elementary school through college, where I focused on french horn. I have a BA in Music Education from Humboldt State University, where I also earned my teaching credential. I have taught beginning, intermediate and advanced band and orchestra, in addition to choir and jazz band. I have been music director for over 10 middle school musicals. In my spare time I enjoy my two dogs, going horseback riding, and reading. *** Lesson Details *** I am very friendly, and encouraging to new students. I have a lot of patience for those who are new to the study of music. I can also be more demanding for those who have learned the basics and want to improve their playing. I am a proponent of teaching the basics of music reading and common musical terms. I can teach music through a variety of curricula, and will work with my students to choose a method that best suits their goals. I have a large music studio in my home that has a separate entrance,which is conducive to music making (with it's own bathroom). I accept students 8 years of age and older. *** Studio Equipment *** Has a keyboard, but no drum set *** Travel Equipment *** I prefer to teach in my home studio. *** Specialties *** I have been teaching band, orchestra & choir in public schools for 30+ years.
