*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Rina taught my son oboe lessons for two years. She was the perfect mix of being approachable, friendly, knowledgeable, and serious about teaching oboe. When I was looking for a teacher I was especially concerned that I find someone who would go beyond teaching how to play the notes, and would get deeply into the technique - the real details of articulation and all of the performance points specific to the oboe. My son always ended lessons being motivated to practice and enjoying the experience. He also mentioned that he learned more in a single lesson with Rina than in months with other teachers. I recommend Rina as an oboe teacher without reservation.

Stanton, CA

View Full Profile

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.

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, in my home studio, 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 learni
ng to their lessons.

**In-home Lessons**
Currently, I'm traveling to the Southbay area on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. If you reside within that area and the time you'd like isn't in my availability, please let me know, as I may be able to make it work (depending on location). If you have any scheduling questions, please contact me before booking 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!

Lessons are focused around having fun while becoming a full rounded musician and stellar oboe player. In addition to gaining the fundamental skills necessary to master the art of the oboe, we cover everything from music theory to reeds and anything in between. All levels and ages are welcome. It is never too late to start!

About Zoe
I am a performer, administrator, and arts advocate with an aim to inspire audiences in unconventional ways. A Native of Miami, Florida, I started my musical studies at the age of 12 and has been an active member of the Miami and Baltimore music scenes ever since. Since coming to Baltimore to study at the Peabody Conservatory in 2011, I have had the opportunity to perform with nearly every large ensemble in the school and have also performed in Yale's Norfolk Summer Music Festival, as faculty at the New York Summer Music festival during my time studying in conservatory, and with the Occasional Symphony. I regularly perform in the Baltimore/DC metro area as a freelance oboist and member of the contemporary chamber orchestra, Mind on Fire. I also have performed with the Columbia Orchestra, Classical Revolution Baltimore, and many other estee
med local organizations. I have also been featured as a woodwind clinician in Baltimore County and Howard County public schools classrooms and have been the oboe adjudicator for the middle and high school division of the Howard County Solo & Ensembles for the past three years.

I graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University with a Masters in Oboe Performance in 2016. I additionally hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance as well as a Teaching Certificate from the Peabody Conservatory. During my time at Peabody, I studied under Jane Marvine, English Horn of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

While studying at Peabody, my passion for music education was ignited and I really enjoyed exploring the development of my skills and resources both as a classroom and studio teacher. It is my personal mission to enrich students through music education while still having fun and learning to apply skills learned in music to other areas of life.

I am currently the Operations Manager with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Previously, I have held administrative positions with cultural organizations such as the Baltimore Choral Arts Society and the New York Philharmonic. I have been on both sides of the music industry and classroom, so I know what it takes to become a professional musician, and take a nuanced pedagogical approach to help each student achieve their goals in a way that suits them individually - no two students are the same! I believe each student should have a strong fundamental layer in technique and understanding of music theory, but should also focus on having fun while playing music, otherwise, what is the point?

Outside of oboe I enjoy hiking with my dog, painting, yoga, and Cuban food.

Daniel Shin is currently the principal oboe player of the Emory Symphony Orchestra. Currently pursuing a BA in Music Performance, Daniel has been playing the oboe for 7 years. In High School, he was the first chair oboist in the New Jersey All-Regional, All-State, and All-Eastern Symphony Orchestra. He was also the second chair oboist of the All-National Symphony Orchestra. He can help beginner and intermediate oboe players learn important foundational playing skills, tone, musical interpretation, standard oboe repertoire, and help with all-regional/all-state auditions.

About Daniel
Hello!

My name is Daniel Shin, and I'm a freshman at Emory University. I'm currently studying Music Performance at Emory University and participate as the Principal Oboist in the Symphony Orchestra. I've learned oboe under James Riggs and Julia DeRosa for many years, oboists who earned their masters in Oboe Performance from Julliard under the instruction of Elaine Douvas. I have a strong passion for both classical music and the oboe, as the two are inseparable. I hope that whoever I teach, I can instill within them the same love for music in an enjoyable and fulfilling way! As I've done countless auditions for All-state/All-regional/All-Shore ensembles and have succeeded in them, I have a lot of experience and knowledge on exactly what you need to be successful with your audition. I look forward to working with future students!

I did not start off on oboe. Originally I played clarinet and I feel that is what most separates me from other oboe players. I understand what it is like to switch to the difficult instrument and the battles we must face from switching. I am a graduate from Los Osos High School where I was their principal oboe. There I taught 3 underclassmen how to play oboe, all switching from other instruments. Along with this I have also taught music to students under the age of 13 and from this understand that every student is different and that we all will learn at the pases appropriate for each individual. My main goal is to make it enjoyable for each student and to provide an expierence where they want to pick up the instrument and where they are comfortable with the awkwardness of learning a new instrument.

About Bryce
Hi! I am a high school graduate from Los Osos High School. I graduated in the top 10% of my class and have always had a passion for teaching. I am 18 years young and very optimistic. I personally really enjoy seeing those around me prosper and grow and develop skills that will further expand their quality of life. My life has always been filled with music. I am visually impaired but that has only made me a stronger woman. I have been blessed to have been given partial sight and I feel this has allowed me to share my story to others that nothing can stop you from achieving your hopes and dreams. Being visually impaired has helped me in my musical journey. It has shown me the importance of music and how there is nothing in this world that can replace its beauty. I feel eveyone deserve the epierence of music and I hope that I can be an aid t
o the mission.
