We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!
Ashna S.
Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

3rd lesson and so far so good. Michael is patient and determined, my son is a little reluctant but wants to learn. Michael is a good match for his personality, meets my son where he is and then takes it from there.

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. I was recently appointed Adjunct Professor of Oboe at the University of San Diego and have served as an oboist with Navy Band Southw

Jeannine
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!!!

"My daughter wanted to learn the oboe to complement her clarinet playing. We found Angela on this site and took a chance despite the limited reviews. Angela is awesome. My daughter loves her and she has learned a lot over the several lessons she has had with her.

Angela's location is in the heart of Koreatown, which means an abundance of great food and tea nearby if you need to kill time waiting for your child's lesson to complete. But it also means that it's really hard to park. It's worth figuring out the parking situation though, for a teacher this good."
