Challenge Yourself in the Oboe with Top Advice from an Remarkable Pro
I like music to be fun! I have played in major symphony orchestras, classical and jazz groups, in costume at Universal Studios and surrounding Orlando area and created my own pop oboe CDs. I like to explore all styles of music including pop, rock, jazz and classical.

Using several curriculum for phonics, and reading, while Homeschooling, is why she is offering this service through Take Lessons. *** Lesson Details *** FUN and More FUN can be expected with the background of Kindermusik and Homeschooling!

Through homeschooling and her years of teaching background, your students can expect LOTS of PATIENCE because Bonnie relates to each student and how they learn best on an individual level. Every student has a different way they learn, and Bonnie quickly tunes in to their way of learning. *** Studio Equipment *** Oboe, Recorder,Bagpipes (chanter), Flute, Keyboard Student should have their own instrument *** Travel Equipment *** Keyboard for Piano Student should have their own instrument *** Specialties *** Pop, Rock, Classical
