Teaching

Are you looking for an inspiring oboe teacher?

I have over ten years of experience teaching private lessons to oboists at all levels of study, from middle school beginners through college music majors.

My teaching style emphasizes the foundations of rhythm, tone production, and phrasing. For each student, I choose repertoire that will build essential skills and also provide a satisfying musical experience. I assist my students with reed-making at all stages of the process from cane selection to gouging to the final scrapes that perfect the reed.

Starting in August 2014, I offer private oboe lessons at Midwest Young Artists in Highwood, Illinois. This facility is conveniently located near Metra’s Union Pacific North line as well as US Route 41. To inquire about rates or arrange a lesson time, please email me!
