Do I need to own my own oboe to take lessons?

No. However, you need access to an instrument through your school or a music store rental program.

Purchasing an oboe is a commitment that makes sense at a certain level of accomplishment. I will help your family decide when it is the right time. Also- I really like to help my students find an appropriate instrument.

How long before I can make reeds?

A student needs a certain level of expertise on playing the instrument before it is wise to start reed-making.

Generally, after a student can handily play all 25 scales, they are ready for this next step.

Are you taking any precautions while teaching during the Covid-19 pandemic?

Yes. I am offering some in person lessons starting in the Fall of 2020. As peer-reviewed evidence is being published and changes quite quickly, please email me for my most current procedures.
