Want to learn how to grow and develop your own naturally existing instrument (aka, your very own voice)? Want to be able to go into a karaoke event and kill it? Want to step up on stage at your talent show and hit them with your best shot? Or do you simply want to be able to get your voice to do what you want it to do? Whatever your reason for wanting to improve your singing voice I can help you get there.

About Ariel O.

Hello there! My name is Ariel. I graduated from the University of Jamestown with a Bachelors in Music Education and Flute performance. I am primarily a flute family specialist: piccolo, flute, Alto and Bass flute are all in my wheelhouse. Through my years of schooling I have learned many other instruments and also am very skilled in voice, so I am qualified to teach most categories. I taught in the North Dakota Public School system in very small school districts for several years. My greatest strength while teaching was working one on one with each individual to get my students to a much higher level of playing and musicianship. I truly believe meeting each individual where they currently are and going from there is the best policy for growing as musician.

I also believe that in order to be the best teacher I can be I must continue to grow as a musician as well. So, I too continue to work to improve my skills, and play with great ensembles to keep my skills sharp and ever growing. At the moment I play in 4 different community ensembles around the state of North Dakota and also participate annually in IMC's Adult Community Music Camp. Typically you will find me playing the flute and piccolo, but occasionally I pick up the Tenor Sax to play in Jazz combo, and when the season is right you will find me lugging around my Euphonium to play all of the Regional Tuba Christmas Events in North Dakota annually and from time to time I play in brass choirs. I truly believe the act of making music with an ensemble is a major key to success and fulfillment on your journey as a musician.

Ariel was very passionate about her conducting. She was determined to help us learn the material and play the music at our best. Ariel came in everyday with a positive attitude that was contagious, she made the band room a better place.

Ms. Oster was my student teacher in middle school and never failed to make my day by encouraging me to KEEP PLAYING! :) She is also an extremely talented flute player and any student would be lucky to work with her to improve their instrument skills.

Ariel was a student teacher of mine in choir and I loved her! She put the needs of her students way before her own! Her optimism and light-heartedness made it very easy to work with her! Ariel always makes sure her students are comfortable
and learning at their own speed! I would definitely
recommend her if you are looking for the best teacher out there!

She was a fun and awesome teacher! When she was at Minnewaukan public school she always had really good advice when I was one of her students. She helped me a lot in choir as well with the troubles I had. She also helped a lot of the other students to!

Where to start? Her optimism is her greatest feature when it comes to music and teaching. She really helped me through tough times when I felt my music skills weren't great. She is a great teacher and has a great friendly vibe!

I took flute lessons from Ariel a couple years ago. Ariel plays flute beautifully. I was a beginning student and she was very knowledgeable about teaching flute, very encouraging and I got a good foundation in playing flute from her. I would highly recommend Ariel as a teacher. She also made it fun.

Ms. Oster was the best music instructor my Grandson ever had, he plays the Trumpet and plays it still today. She introduced him to the International Music a camp that is held at The Peace Gardens during the summer. Ms. Oster was the most positive influence on him to date. I often wish she could work with him again. It is a privilege and an honor to give her a review..thank you

Ariel is very versatile on her teachings, from brass instruments, to woodwind instruments, to singing. Her ability to be able to teach many instruments and vocal skills is amazing and I'm glad that I was able to be taught all that by her. I highly recommend her and you'll have fun and learn alot guranteed!
