Overview

I am a recent transplant to Los Angeles. For many years I was a freelance oboe and English horn player in the Chicagoland area. I have a Master of Music in Oboe Performance from Northern Illinois University. I most recently studied under Ricardo Castaneda the principal oboe of the Chicago Sinfonietta. I am a member of the Illinois Valley Symphony Orchestra and also teach piano and theater arts.

My son said he learned a lot of knowledge about oboe today. She's very patience and nice. Now I know how pretty an oboe can sound! :)

Fantastic teacher all around. I'm enjoying my lessons with Stepher and taking advantage of her knowledge of theory, technique, guidance, evaluation and assignments.
