*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Stanton, CA

With 10 years of teaching experience, I specialize in working with students of all ages and abilities. Lessons incorporate music theory, technique, and lyrical expression. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I hold a Master's Degree in Oboe Performance from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University, Long Beach. During my studies I studied with Carolyn Hove and Humbert Lucarelli.

About Grace
Grace has extensive experience teaching private and group lessons, including lessons in Piano, English Horn and reed making. Her students have gone on to win scholarships and place in honor orchestras. Currently, her students hold the top spots in nTyme's (North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble) Chamber Orchestra.

Locally, Grace has performed with the Dana Point Symphony, Symphony Irvine, as well as other groups around Southern California. Previously, she was a long time member of the Cheshire Symphony.

Whether you choose to take lessons online, in my home studio, or in your home, I strive to make each lesson engaging, informative, and fun! Students are expected to practice in-between lessons and come to lessons prepared with their instrument and music. I also encourage students to bring any music that they're interested in learni
ng to their lessons.

**In-studio Lessons**
In-studio lessons take place in my home studio in Stanton, CA. Availability is limited, so please use the Ask-A-Question feature if a time you'd like isn't currently available.

**In-home Lessons**
Currently, I'm traveling to the Southbay area on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. If you reside within that area and the time you'd like isn't in my availability, please let me know, as I may be able to make it work (depending on location). If you have any scheduling questions, please contact me before booking lessons.

**Group Lessons**
I don't offer traditional group lessons, as I've found they slow down the progress of both students and therefore aren't cost effective. Arrangements can be made for back to back lessons instead. Please contact me before booking lessons.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, and I can't wait to meet you!

Grace was on-the-dot punctual, and had me play what I could for her. Right away she locked in on my intonation, which I have been having problems with. She asked several questions, which was a good thing. She followed up with a printed list of things for me to work on. All this was done with a pleasant gentleness which has me looking forward to the next lesson.

Hughson, CA

View Full Profile

I am a double reed (oboe and bassoon) specialist and have played both for over 16 years. I tutor the double reed students at Hughson High School and Ross Middle School during the school year. Proper oboe embouchure, technique and selection and adjustment of reeds is something most public school teachers overlook. Trust a specialist!

I teach oboe primarily through the tried and true Rubank method and the Ferling studies. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed adjustment, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for oboe to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production). You can find more information about me and what I do at caseymusicservice﮳com.

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

After just a few lessons, I have learned so much! I have been playing oboe for about a year, and we have been filling in the gaps in my learning. Dawn also writes detailed reports of every lesson, which is super helpful to remember everything in the lessons. She is quick to respond to any questions I ask her outside of the lessons.

My beginning oboe students will learn oboe playing basics, care, as well as how to read notes of the treble clef. Basic music theory will also be taught (time signatures, note durations, etc.). Students will learn technical skills as well as musical skills in a comfortable, fun environment. Typically, I use the "Best in Class" book series for the oboe. :)

About Elyse
Hi, Everyone! Thank you so much for taking a moment to read my blurb! My name is Elyse, and I can't wait to meet you! I've taught music in small ensembles since July, 2007 by helping out marching bands. It was so much fun! Teaching and music are my biggest passions.

**If you're going to make a mistake, make a loud one!!**

I want my students to know right off the bat it's okay to make mistakes! My philosophy is: You make mistakes. Mistakes don't make you. :) We fix them and learn together.

I have classroom taught since 2010 - General Music and Choir. I have been teaching private lessons since 2014, and I have absolutely LOVED helping my students read music, excel at playing or singing songs that they enjoy, and seeing their happiness and excitement when they realize how much they have achieved.

In 2009, I graduated from Kent S
tate University, located in Kent, OH, and I earned my Bachelor's degree in Music Education. I'm definitely a fun-loving, outgoing person, and my teaching style is tailored to my students; a think-outside-the-box style, and hands-on.

Let's get together, reach for those stars, and grab your goals!

Miss Elyse is FUN and so funny! My lessons with her go by too fast. She gives me really good practice tips about playing hands apart, then slowly adding them together. Miss Elyse got me to use my metronome the right way, too. My music is fun too.

The Doctor is in! I am the founder and owner of NOVA Music Academy in Winchester with a professional teaching studio and staff to teach every wind and string instrument. I hold a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Flute Performance from Shenandoah University and I have taught children and university students for more than 10 years. Your child deserves the BEST music teacher. From experience I know teachers vary wildly in quality; with me, you are assured expert quality and professionalism that your child deserves.

Whether your child loves Mozart or Moana, is putting their instrument together for the first time, or getting ready for a big audition, I meet your child at their level and I take them to the stars!

About Julianna
Dear Student,

I am so excited you want to take music lessons! If you love music, we'll have a lot of fun learning together. My best memories are from playing with friends in band and orchestra. Playing the flute took me to college and to visit Europe, even to meet my best friend and my husband! I love to listen to and teach all kinds of music and can't wait to hear what your favorites are. I studied to be a classical flutist so I play a beautiful silver flute in the orchestra but my husband and I also love popular music. In our group, "Mr & Mrs Music" I play a hot pink flute and he plays an electric cello! We mix classical music, pop, and movie hits and have so much fun performing in our community. I can't wait to meet you and make music together!

Dear Parents,

Thank you for giving your child the gift of music! Even if th
ey don’t recognize it right away, they are so fortunate to have your support. As the founder and owner of NOVA Music Academy, I believe that children always win when parents and teachers unite to provide support. We hope that by inviting you into the NOVA Music Academy family, your unique child will find joy in learning music and grow to appreciate the deeply expressive power of art for a lifetime.

I can personally attest to the joy that music has brought my life, including full scholarships for a bachelors, master's and doctoral degree and I could never have done it without my amazing flute teachers. I'm looking forward to repaying their investment into the next generation of musicians, I sincerely hope your child is one of them! My website contains a full bio, resume, and recordings of my playing and testimonials from parents and students.

Having Julie for a flute teacher greatly improved my daughter's proficiency and love for music. Julie was very professional and thorough in her lessons. Most importantly, my daughter was inspired to practice and improve. After taking lessons with Julie, my daughter improved to the level that she began to be hired to perform for Weddings, Church Masses, and Catholic School Masses.

I'm her history class I learned about different tuning systems, and then she helped me turn that knowledge into practical application on the flute. Julie's teaching helped me play more confidently.

About Sophie A.

Close

I have taken oboe lessons myself for six years from many different teachers. I have been able to compile the best attributes of each of my teachers to make me the best teacher possible. Throughout middle school and high school, I was continually the top player in my section. I participated in many other ensembles outside of school, including regional band/orchestra and the Tucson Philharmonia Youth Orchestra. My senior year of high school, I was awarded the John Philip Sousa Band Award for exemplifying superior musicianship and leadership. I only teach beginner/novice players at the moment, so I am able to focus solely on how best to help beginners progress and reach specific goals that will take them to the next level in their musicianship.

About Sophie
I have always loved making music. Every chance I've gotten, I've been involved in an ensemble, or many ensembles. During marching band season in high school, since oboes can't march, I was on the color guard. This allowed me to obtain a lot of leadership and teaching experience. The way you teach music is similar to the way you teach and practice a color guard/dance routine. I've also had many great mentors that helped me learn the best ways to practice and how to teach someone else how to practice; tools that I pass to my students.
When I started college, I was a music major in the oboe studio. However, I ultimately determined that my greatest passion was helping people pursue a healthy life, but music is still very dear to me. I am now majoring in integrative health at Arizona State University, but I practice with and perform in the co
ncert band on campus. I've always had a passion for helping others learn more about and gain a greater appreciating for music. I firmly believe that listening to and making music possesses healing qualities and I love for my students to find that for themselves.
