I totally get it - the oboe is challenging. But if I can do it, you can too!

Confession time

  • Did you know I  didn’t begin learning how to make reeds until I was a junior in college?​​

       That’s right… a junior... in college!


  • I struggled for years playing the oboe with tension and pain. But it is possible to get past that and play with more ease. I'll share how I learned to get beyond this and offer tips for healthy practice.

Are you ready to become a member of a supportive studio?


Everyone has their own unique learning style. Working with a teacher who doesn’t get it can lead to frustration and not being able to learn. Well, good news because I’ve honed my teaching strategies to incorporate ALL learning methods. I will adapt to YOUR learning style.


Not sure how to practice? I’ll show you efficient practice strategies so that you won’t waste time in the practice room. 

Here’s what you get in your lessons:

  • INDIVIDUAL TEACHING PLAN that adapts to your unique learning style.

  • WEEKLY LESSON ASSIGNMENTS, so you can progress with small goals… think scales,  etudes, etc.

  • AUDITION PREPARATION with strategic steps to meet larger goals...think repertoire.

  • REED MAKING, an optional add-on so you can learn how to tie, scrape, and adjust your own reeds.

PLUS, you’ll also get instant access to:

my downloadable list of top 10 reed tips that provides answers to your reed questions 

How does it work?

“Teaching is more than just music – it takes patience and understanding. I learned that from you. Private instructors spend so much time with students that you learn about each student. You’re like a mentor or a coach. It helps to know that your teachers are human. You humanize yourself.”

No worries! As long as you are interested in learning - we will begin wherever you are.
