Overview

Interested in playing the oboe or learning music theory? I give private lessons in oboe and music theory to students of all ages and levels. Located near USC, I teach out of my home studio or at your home. I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Washington, and I am currently completing my Master of Music degree in Oboe Performance at USC Thornton School of Music. I perform in orchestras around Los Angeles and in music festivals all around the world.
I have experience teaching students who wish to improve their skills on the oboe in school band, orchestra, competitions, auditions, and performances. I am also passionate about music theory, ear-training, and music history, and have studied these subjects in college and graduate school. Please contact me for more information and to schedule your first lesson!

I have never played a wind instrument before so it takes a lot of patience and guidance just to make a sound of any kind on the oboe. But now after 1 lesson with Bhavai I can actually play a melody or 2. She's a very good teacher.

I learn so much from my lessons with Bhavani. She is friendly and organized, and is fun to work with. I would recommend taking lessons with her.
