Oboe Class Info

Oboe Studio

Oboe Studio – Music Building Rm 219, Western University, London Ontario

Oboists need to be musicians, carvers and mechanics!  I enjoy teaching and encouraging students to excel in all of these areas by providing a well rounded approach to achieving oboe competence.  I’m dedicated to spending as much in-studio time with each student as possible.
