Lessons in the JS Oboe Studio


Hoping your child will "stick with" music this time? Did they quit piano, and now you're wishing that they will find joy in starting oboe lessons? (You're not alone!)

Or have you been trying to get into that youth symphony but can't quite figure out how to take your auditioning skills to the next level?

Maybe you played the oboe while growing up, and are just looking for some pointers to get back into playing?

No matter your level, I will guide you as you step up your game

Students in the JS Oboe Studio...

  • Receive weekly reed adjustment help as needed. Nothing will keep you away from the oboe faster than a fussy reed will. 

  • Keep track of and quickly see their weekly progress through level-appropriate method books and etude books.

  • Receive personalized coaching to help reach your goals. Whether you want to gain confidence for band class playing tests or you have your eyes set on getting into youth symphony, I want to help you see and reach your potential.

  • Have opportunities to play chamber music. The opportunities to make music with others is part of what makes the oboe so fun! We will regularly play duets in lessons, and I may join in on the piano parts to some of your solos. You will also have chances to play and perform chamber music with your oboe friends in the studio.


"I have really enjoyed lessons, they have taught me a lot and have been fun. Jamie is a great mentor on more than just oboe and it has been fun meeting with her each week."

- Katie, student
