Providing oboe lessons at all levels in a relaxed home studio.
Lessons are delivered with a friendly whole-student approach that takes into account the individual goals and needs of the student, whether it be completing AMEB exams, learning oboe as part of a school band programme, pursuing music scholarships or music as a career, or simply learning for sheer pleasure.
At all levels, I place a strong emphasis on correct technique, breathing and posture, achieving the best oboe sound possible, and gaining a comprehensive knowledge about music in general. I aim to create not just oboists, but musicians. I am passionate about music and all the ways it benefits my students. It is a privilege to witness and be a part of their musical, intellectual and emotional growth.
Tuition is also available in all aspects of oboe reed-making and adjustment.
Music Theory and Musicianship to Grade 4, and Music Craft to Grade 2, are available as an add-on to oboe lessons - please add 15 minutes to regular lesson time.

30 minutes: suitable for a beginner to ~ AMEB 3rd grade.
