“I played the oboe in junior high and decided to take it up again after more than 40 years absence. I live in a rural area where finding live instruction is very difficult, and, given the difficulty of playing this instrument, it's unlikely I would have been able to play again without this course. I look forward to taking the intermediate course so I can stay on track to join the oboe section of our local concert band next season."
“I absolutely love this course! My dad and mom signed me up and I'm glad they did! Music Professor is amazing! I would definitely recommend this to a new Oboe player like myself! I feel like I can play anything like a professional! A huge thanks to this instructor. I think that after I finish this course I will not only have surprised myself and family, but my director and classmates in the Fall! Thanks so much Music Professor! :) You all really are amazing! :) :) :)”
