Listed below, in alphabetical order by state, are oboe and bassoon instructors in the US. So far I don’t have many listed, and I rely on readers to assist in its growth!

I do not know every one of these teachers. This is only a list, and does not constitute a recommendation for any instructor. I highly recommend you ask for references or music background if you are unsure of the teacher.

Email me at pattyoboe [at] me [dot] com to have a name added. Please present your information in this way:

NAME (yes, all caps)
INSTRUMENT (ditto!)
Teaching area (like “San Francisco Bay Area”)
Phone number (mobile phone recommended)
Email address in THIS format: name [at] service [dot] com/edu/whatever

This makes my job MUCH easier! Should you opt to ignore this request I won’t be posting your information. Sorry, but I ask that you help me out if I’m going to help you. I’m sure you can understand! (insert obligatory smiley face here)

Please note: if you provide your home phone number people might be able to search on that and find your home address. For this reason I suggest never listing a home phone, but a mobile instead. I cannot be held responsible for anything that occurs if you provide your home number instead.

(Side note: It’s common courtesy, at least to this old lady, to send me an email with at least a greeting. When I get something that has NO personal note at all it feels … well … just a little bit rude! I’m old. Just roll your eyes and put up with me, please!)
