Oboe (and English horn) Lessons:

Glenda Bates has a doctorate of Music in Oboe Performance from Stony Brook University.  She has decades of playing and teaching experience, and also taught undergrad oboists at University of Maryland. 

About Oboe Reeds:

Study of the oboe requires a commitment from students and families, and very importantly requires learning on professional, hand-made reeds.  Learning on poor-quality, mass-produced reeds develops bad habits in embouchure and performance technique. Learning on hand made reeds with lessons from a professional oboist will set any student on the proper track to making beautiful music on the oboe and English horn!
