About Clare M.

I am a professional oboist and reed maker. I graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Music in Oboe and am currently working on my Master of Music in Oboe at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

I have been teaching private lessons for 5 years and I currently sell 30-40 oboe reeds a month. I am happy to sell reeds to my students and help them learn to make their own.

I teach oboe students of all ages and proficiencies. I believe music should be fun, whether pursued as a career or a hobby. I help students release tension and facilitate ease in playing in order to find that fun.

In addition to oboe, I am studying yoga and the Alexander Technique. I plan to become certified in both in the coming years. Regardless of your goals with the oboe, I will help you develop a solid foundation to become a versatile player.

I believe that musicality can be taught as well as technique and will work with you to create a routine that best fits your aspirations as an oboist.

I look forward to meeting you!

Clare could not be more supportive, patient, and willing to facilitate changes to schedules. If you are new to this instrument, or already proficient, you will have a nice experience under her instruction. I am an adult student, and I have unique challenges. She has accommodated me in a way that has motivated me to write this review without her asking me. That should tell you something.

Clare is not only a wonderful oboist but a wonderful oboe teacher. She takes the time to put technique first which made a huge difference in my playing. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!

Clare is a wonderful oboist who plays with emotion and that same energy transfers into her teaching.

Clare is incredibly easy to work with and is a great teacher. She really takes the time to get to know her students and can explain topics in a way that everyone can understand. She also makes fantastic reeds.
