I can help beginning students on oboe learn the basics.

About Thomas
Thomas J. W. is an active music teacher, composer, adjudicator, and clinician in the greater Philadelphia area. He has over fifteen years experience as a concert band director, marching band director, jazz improvisation instructor, choral director, private instructor, and marching drill writer. His directing career has included small rural band programs, small metro programs, large high-achieving suburban programs, and non-profit youth bands. In addition to his band compositions, he also has over forty unpublished vocal arrangements to his credit, most written for use with collegiate men's a cappella groups. Thomas taught over 600 online and local private music lessons in 2016.

Thomas has a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from The Pennsylvania State University. He holds a teaching certificate in the states of Pennsylvania
and New Jersey and has taught at the secondary level in both states. In addition to both instrumental and choral ensembles at Penn State, Thomas was a student leader in the Penn State Blue Band and a member of the brass section of the Cadets of Bergen County Drum and Bugle Corps in 1993 and 1994. He served as an Associate Director of the Warren Junior Military Band of Youngstown, Ohio from 1995 to 2005. He also served as a visual staff member for the renowned North Penn Marching Knights of Lansdale, PA for one season in 2004.

He is a current adjudicator with Drum Corps International and Cavalcade of Bands. He is a member of MENC, PMEA, NJMEA, ASCAP, CASA, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and the National Band Association. He appeared in the Marquis Who's Who Among American Educators in 2004 and 2005, an honor rarely bestowed upon teachers, as students who appear in the Who's Who Among American High School Students must nominate them. He currently is a music teacher at the Center for Performing and Fine Arts of the PA Leadership Charter School in West Chester, PA and resides in Downingtown, PA with his wife and two sons.

Thomas will happily work with students on the autism spectrum or students with ADD.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of each student. If a student is involved in school music ensembles, we will work with their lesson books from school in addition to material outside of the books, including SmartMusic, Noteflight, and teacher-created materials. We will focus on building proper tone production and individual technique - something that often is difficult to learn in a large ensemble setting.

I am capable of starting a beginner student on any band instrument including percussion, any classical string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass), and piano. I can begin a student on drum set and work with them through their first method book, but I would then recommend they find a specialized drum set teacher after a period of six to twelve months.

For advanced students, I work from selected conservatory etude books on developing advanced skills and can work with students on audition pieces for honors bands/orchestras or college auditions.

My lessons are a half-hour once a week, with the option of working for 45 minutes or 60 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
music, band, orchestra, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, violin, viola, cello, string bass, piano, Percussion
classical, jazz improvisation

I've been teaching Oboe for 8 years and my students have gone on to College, and other performing goals.I use a variety of books from the typical book you would use as a student in a band program to a more advanced method for other players.

I plan and offer yearly professional student performances to give each student practical applications to their instruction!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

Stanton, CA

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-studio Lessons**
In-studio lessons take place in my home studio in Stanton, CA. Availability is limited, so please use the Ask-A-Question feature if a time you'd like isn't currently available.

**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!

About Michael

For first-time students, I prefer to start out discussing the fundamentals of melody and rhythm within the context of the human voice. I will guide students at the beginner level through tone production, sight reading, and instrument basics. For intermediate students, I will focus on perfecting technique, developing repertoire, and preparing for auditions. For advanced students, I will focus on developing virtues specific to individual long-term goals.

About Justin
My approach to music education is one that puts musical expression first and then applies technique as appropriate to an individual's virtues. Oboe in particular is an instrument whose complexity lends itself to dogmatic approaches that can stifle individual growth. This is because the oboe is an instrument that requires constant fine tuning and adjustment, both of the instrument itself and the reeds that one plays. In this way, oboe is very much a craft, more than just a consumable product. As an expert in instrument adjustment and reed making, I can help students overcome the fundamental difficulties of playing oboe and focus on the most important aspect, which is making music.

I have a bachelor of music, master of music, and specialist degree in music education. I really enjoy teaching part time because music turned my life aro
und when I was struggling in middle school, helping me to become the best that I could be in all aspects of life.

I specialize in the all levels of oboe students! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be performing in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of reed making, note reading, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

About Bennett
Currently a freelance oboist in the Los Angeles area, Mr. Lopez has performed and taught all across the Northern California region including San Francisco and Sacramento. While freelancing, he performed with the San Francisco Wind Ensemble as part of their Golden Gate Music in the Park Series as principal oboist. Passionate about education alongside his drive to perform, Lopez has maintained a private studio wherever he has traveled. An active advocate for music in the public schools, Mr. Lopez has given clinics, sectionals, and taught ensemble rehearsals with various groups at local elementary, middle, and high schools.

Connecting with his audiences, Mr. Lopez is proud of his community engagement efforts, offering chamber music concerts to a wide variety of listeners. His former woodwind quintet, The Desert Island Winds created programs
that highlighted the importance of chamber music for all music students and supporters.

Bennett is inspired and engaged in performing new works by living composers. During his undergraduate career, he performed over 20 concerts of new music. Primarily fostering younger composer’s passion to write, he also played a role during Composers Inc.’s first ever orchestral debut concert. Premiering new works in Berkeley, Hayward, and Stockton with various ensembles, Mr. Lopez has enjoyed all aspects of new music performance.

He has also performed across the world including Carnegie Hall, California Theater, Golden Gate Park, Ljubljana Theater, Slovak Radio Hall, Green Music Center, Faye-Spanos Concert Hall, Community Concert Hall of Durango, CO, Menlo-Atherton Center for Performing Arts, and various churches across California.

Bennett Lopez is pursuing a Master’s degree in Oboe Performance at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA under the direction and guidance of Dr. Joel Timm. Previously, he received his Bachelor’s of Music in Music Education from the University of the Pacific where he was a Theodore Presser Undergraduate Scholar.

A majority of his time is spent practicing his instruments, but alongside the necessity of reeds, Bennett enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He loves going outdoors and cooking!

12+ years of experience and a recent graduate from the New England Conservatory with a B.M. in Oboe Performance. I can teach beginners-intermediate oboe students of all ages. Music is supposed to be fun, and I take a light-hearted approach for students wrestling with the double-reed instrument. I can teach students how to make a reed or sell my own for personalized comfort. I focus on learning scales and etudes as well as basic repertoire for students' auditions, but mostly for enjoyment!

About Mary
