Set and surpass your goals as an oboist!

Oboe Lessons

During the current Covid-19 restrictions, lessons will be held online via video chat. When we resume in person lessons, students will have the option of continuing their lessons online or coming to my studio in Newcastle, WA. Each lesson is either 45 minutes or one hour long, depending on your need.

Students in the JS Oboe Studio will:

  • Receive weekly reed adjustment help as needed. Your reeds shouldn’t be getting in the way of your playing. They should be easy to play and help you sound beautiful! During Covid-19 restrictions, I am scheduling occasional in-person lessons for students who need immediate reed help.
  • Keep track of and quickly see their weekly progress through level-appropriate method books or etude books.
  • Receive personalized coaching to excel at assignments for band class.
  • Train for success in auditions for youth symphony or honors ensembles.
