I am a professional performing oboist and have been teaching private lessons for more than 10 years. I received a Bachelors, Masters, and Artist Diploma in Oboe, and have performed with orchestras around the world. I am passionate about teaching and love helping my students to grow. Beginning lessons focus on breathing, support, and embouchure so that we have a solid foundation on which to build. I like to combine work on fundamentals with learning music specific to the student's preferences. I am flexible and tailor each lesson to the student. Looking forward to working with you!

About Justine M.

I am a professional oboist who was born and raised in Alaska, but relocated to Cleveland 10 years ago. I received my Bachelors Degree in oboe from Baldwin Wallace, Masters in oboe from the Cleveland Institute of Music, and an Artist Diploma from Oberlin Conservatory. I currently perform and teach in the Northeast Ohio area, as well as teaching online. I am a member of several orchestras in the Midwest and perform as a substitute with the Cleveland Orchestra. In 2017, I was given the honor to perform with them on a tour throughout Europe.

I am very passionate about teaching, and love working with students of all levels. My students range in age from 5 years old to retirement. I meet each of my students where they are, and strive to challenge them exactly as they need. In addition to teaching private lessons, I also teach sectionals at many local schools and an oboe pedagogy course at my alma mater. Aside from playing and teaching oboe, I enjoy spending time outside (especially at home in Alaska!), yoga, and paleo cooking.

Justine is a very fun and caring teacher to work with. I've been working with her for around seven months and have greatly improved my skills as a musician!

Justine has really helped me throughout this year, especially since it’s my first year and I had a hard time getting used to the instrument. Shes really good with teaching and has continuously helped me to learn new things.

I am the Director of Bands for the Medina City School System and I serve over 800+ band students from 6th grade through 12th grade. Justine has been teaching oboe lessons for the oboe students in our band program for a number of years now.

She is an extremely pleasant and polite individual to work with professionally. All of the students I have spoken with regarding their lessons with Justine cannot sing her praises enough!! In their lessons Justine is kind and abundantly knowledgeable. Justine provides sound pedagogical advice rooted in her deep understanding of music and her own outstanding musicianship!!!

Oboe students are very fortunate to study with someone like Justine. I know as a band director, I am very fortunate to have such a person supplementing our student's music learning.

Justine is the best teacher. Excellent at explaining all the techniques of oboe as well as the musicality of phrasing, etc. She is passionate about the oboe and truly cares about her students. She is flexible and understanding but at the same time sets high standards and expectations. My only regret is that I did not find her earlier, as I am sure it would have made a big difference in my oboe playing.

Justine is great with my son, Philip. He has learned better fingering, positioning, and habits. I love to hear how his sound has changed from working with Justine. She is very patient with him. He has autism, and she has always been able to get his best work out of him. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Justine is incredible! She is so kind, patient and helpful with my daughter. I cannot recommend her enough, if you're looking for some extra oboe training please consider her first.

I have studied with Justine for over 5 and 1/2 years, and considering that I took up the oboe later in life (age 69) she has been a very patient and knowledgeable instructor.
I doubt if I would have continued this long if I hadn't had someone who is that willing to help with any difficulties I have had so far.

I took lessons with Justine all through my high school career. She was always dedicated, informative, and kind. She allowed me to learn at a pace I was comfortable with while still pushing me to be the best I could be :). Absolutely loved all of my lessons with her!

Justine was my oboe private lesson teacher for 5 years and she is absolutely amazing!! I learned SO much from her and I wouldn’t have been the oboe player I was without her! I grew so much on oboe throughout my time with her. She taught me more than just how to play she taught me to believe in myself and have confidence in myself when I play. The days I had lessons with her were my favorite day of the week because of how much fun I had in them. I am so thankful I had Justine as my teacher and any oboe player would be incredibly lucky to have her as theirs!!
