    I love meeting and building a rapport with new students. Each person is so different in their experiences and outlook, so I find it incredibly enriching to be able to meet each student at their level and work together to move forward.

  • Contemporary Music

    Oboe Teacher (Manchester) Picture The oboe is a very versatile instrument, and having been fortunate to meet Christopher Redgate in my time at the Royal Academy of Music, my interest and passion in contemporary music flourished. Attending talks of his on pushing the range of the oboe really inspired me to challenge myself, and...
  • Being An Oboist

    Oboe Teacher (East London) Picture The oboe is not the easiest instrument to start off with but it is a lot of fun. An oboe player can get stressed out about many things in performance. Will the reed work? Will the oboe work? Will I be able to get air down the oboe? The best way to play the oboe is to relax, there is no point in...

With careful instruction and care, I believe that anyone can play the oboe. What's a reed? The reed is perhaps the most important part of the oboe because...

  • Tutor Books for learning an instrument

    Oboe Teacher (South East London) Picture Whilst no tutor book is ever going to be perfect (as every learner is different), I'm regularly left feeling somewhat disillusioned by what is on offer. Books encouraging children to learn things in strange orders, 'well-known' tunes that are significantly out-of-date, not giving enough time...
  • Food for thought: the Perfect Reed

    Oboe Teacher (East London) Picture As a double reed player, it is very easy to find yourself on a quest for the perfect reed. Oboists in particular often dedicate themselves to creating that 'dark' sound, and more often than not, this results in making reeds that are, essentially, too hard. Harder reeds may seem to have that...
