Ms. Rina is by far the best teacher I've ever had. She's very genuine in her work and very kind. She has a deep knowledge of music and she play's the piano absolutely beautifully. I highly recommend her for all ages that desire to learn the piano.

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.

About Joseph
Local tutor;

Will travel to you, or we can use my studios located in Nassau, Suffolk and all 5 boroughs.

clients), full of success story after success story!

22 yrs teaching experience. I have sent thousands of children to Nyssma. Most of my students have scored; "Outstandings", (lvls 1-4), and A+'s, (lvls 5-6). Have gotten students

into All-County,

All State, and All National honor bands. This requires a ranked Nyssma level 6 score of 100.

I have played oboe for 15 years. I studied at California State University, Northridge, where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in oboe performance. I have been tutoring for over ten years, teaching students of all ages and levels. It is important to me that I get to know my students on a personal level, so I can cater lessons to their individual goals/learning styles. Whether you want to work on reeds, prepare for an audition, or learn that song from Frozen, I look forward to working with you!

About Michael

Ithaca gave him the incredible opportunity to hone in on his musicianship and compositional skills. He was also able to discover a new medium of composition, film composition. Tate immediately fell in love with the art of writing music for film and was able to make his first musical debut on a film directed by Mike Blaney. In his time at Ithaca College, he composed scores for multiple films and continues to maintain an active composition career. Tate is currently finishing as a music teacher Brooklyn Scholars Charter School (BSCS) and Music Content Leader for National Heritage Academies (NHA) New York Branch.

Experienced Music teacher of 8 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of their instrument and theory skills. I specialize in all styles. Typically, I use a variety of method books to pick from to meet the needs of the students. I also have many tools available to use during lessons.
My students have gone on to NYSSMA and on to college auditions successfully!

About Amber

I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

I began taking oboe lessons at the age of 8 and have continued with the instrument through a Music Performance degree at Chapman University and am currently completing my Masters degree in Oboe Performance and the University of Southern California. As an oboe teacher, I find it equally important for my students to strengthen their technique and their musicality. To become a strong oboist, it is important to not only play the music properly, but to put a little bit of yourself into every piece you play. I also specialize in reed-making, and love helping students with their reeds, as well as sell reeds to young oboists.

About Emilia
I have been teaching private voice and oboe lessons since 2012. My approach to teaching is expressing yourself naturally. From pop to classical, I believe that as long as you maintain a healthy foundation, you can sing and play any style of music you want! Throughout my career, I have been featured as a vocalist and oboist on Billboard-charting and award-winning albums that vary in genre and style, and have learned that you can conquer any style you wish with the right foundation. I have been playing and singing since I was 8 years old, and recently graduated from the University of Southern California with my Masters in Oboe Performance, having graduated from Chapman University with my Bachelors in Music Performance with a double emphasis in Vocal and Oboe Performance in 2016.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, electric keyboard, acoust
ic guitar, oboe, english horn, video camera with professional-level sound, iMAC, speakers.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Portable keyboard, music stand, laptop, iPad, recording devices that can have recordings sent to students after or during lessons!

*** Specialties ***
I trained classically but personally enjoy singing Pop and Musical Theatre. Because of my background, I like to make sure that my students have good technique that carries through to singing any style they like so that they can accomplish all of their goals without damaging their voices and affecting their health. I have extensive experience with singing in languages including Spanish, French, German, and Italian and like my students to experience different languages as well.

Hello!

I have my Bachelor's degree in Music from Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon. I can make and adjust reeds, to best help my students produce a sound that they are happy with. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Longy School of Music, in Boston.

Lessons can be as relaxed or fast-paced as they need to be, I take a very individualized approach to meet the needs of each student's abilities. I love to give my students choices in their musical path- making music should be fun and enjoyable! Despite that, we still get to business when we have to.

Let's make some music together!

About Alyssa
Hi there!

I am a supportive and encouraging teacher willing to teach all ages and abilities. It is my firm belief that music is for everyone.

I am currently pursuing my M.M. from Longy School of Music. I completed my undergraduate work at Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon privately. I am currently on the private lesson roster for two public schools in the area, and teach both double-reeded instruments. I have successfully helped young students prepare for and audition into district level ensembles.

I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about playing oboe & bassoon.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

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.
