I am Lecturer in Baroque oboe at the USC Thornton School of Music and have been teaching individual modern oboes lessons for over 15 years. I connect well with young children and beginning students, as well as with intermediate and advanced oboists. I have some experience working with special needs children.

What students and parents wrote about Lot: “Very good oboe teacher, patient, intellectual.” - “Lynn was very excited about this afternoon lesson with you!” - “Lot, you are the idol of our daughter” - “I really appreciate your approach” - “Thank you for being such a wonderful mentor. Finding support and encouragement after years of frustration has meant so much to me.”

I thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons with Lot. I was a beginner student on baroque oboe and she helped me to attain facility with the instrument in addition to teaching me to make baroque oboe reeds. I would thoroughly reccomend taking lessons with Lot!
