Experienced Bassoon teacher of 7 years, I've worked extensively with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of all ages. Whether you're a beginning band student, enthusiastic amateur, or have hopes of pursuing bassoon professionally, I can offer fun, challenging, and productive private instruction. I can supply reeds and/or teach reedmaking. Let's get started!

About Eva Galina K.

As a professional bassoonist, I've enjoyed a versatile career both performing and teaching! I received my bachelors degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, PA, and my masters degree from Rice University in Houston, TX. I've enjoyed working and playing with some of the leading symphonic and opera orchestras around the country, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony, the Houston Symphony, the San Diego Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, Sarasota Opera, among others. I taught private lessons, masterclasses, and coached ensembles t throughout the Greater Houston Area for two years before moving to California, and I'm currently building my private bassoon studio here in San Diego, while currently serving as bassoon instructor at the University of San Diego.
Students can expect a solid approach to fundamentals, reeds, and music-making. I like to keep things fun and challenging, and will frequently play duets to develop ensemble skills.

Whether you're a beginner, enthusiastic amateur, or have dreams of playing bassoon professionally, I have the skills to get you where you need to go and to develop your musicianship.

Galina has been working with our 8th grade son on bassoon for a year and he loves it! She is a kind, generous, and knowledgeable teacher. She has patiently prepared him for auditions, improving his technique and musicality, but she also makes lessons fun by playing duets with him. She is also teaching him to make reeds. And she is very easy to work with in scheduling, and has seamlessly moved to remote lessons in the current situation. We are lucky to have found her as a teacher.
