About the
Oboe Studio

Oboe is one of those instruments that virtually requires private lessons in order to excel. When I got my start on the oboe in 5th grade, I remember feeling the frustration and isolation that can come from choosing such a unique instrument. It wasn't until I started taking lessons with an amazing private teacher that I found my voice on the oboe and gained my confidence as a musician. Luckily, the long-term benefits of playing the oboe far outweigh any initial drawbacks, but it can still be hard to overcome instrumental (and reed) challenges without expert help. 

This is where I come in. 

My goal as a teacher is to help students not just survive on the oboe but to thrive. Through weekly lessons with me, students will develop the skills needed to be expressive and confident performers. 

My studio, based in Amarillo, TX,  offers oboe and reed-making lessons to students across the region. Whether you're a beginner, college-bound, or an adult amateur musician, I am here for you. All skill levels are welcome!
