Invincible Oboist – BASICS

$200.00$1,100.00

I’ve had a lot of conversations during this enrollment period, and over and over again I’m getting the feedback that The Invincible Oboist is too big for what you are wanting right now. Too much intensity, too much time.

You WANT the continuing education, you WANT the community, you WANT to get the difficulty of the oboe out of the way so you can lean into your artistry. But you can’t commit to three months of OBOE IMMERSION.

So for the first time, I’ll offer these classes a la carte. Not the playing classes with live coaching for participants – those will remain closed spaces for people within the bubble of community we are building.  Performing works in progress is vulnerable, and we won’t invite guests in for those.

But the CONTENT based classes – on Air, Vibrato and Voicing, Practice Techniques, etc? I am making those available individually or as a bundle so more people who don’t want the WHOLE shebang can still LEARN, can still PARTICIPATE, can still lean into improvement!

Classes are Wednesdays at 7 pm ET.

  • February 1, 2023: Air and Breathing
  • February 8: Articulation
  • February 22: Vibrato and Voicing
  • March 15: Fingers and Technical Practice
  • March 22: Practicing for Artistry
  • April 12: Practicing for Performance
  • April 19: Performance Nerves

You can create your own bundle of learning! Just make sure you let me know which events you plan to attend.

Description

The Invincible Oboist is my signature group coaching program.  Over three months, I help adult oboists to get past the STRUGGLE to find ease and joy in their playing.  The complete program is INTENSIVE, and includes multiple playing opportunities with me and with my amazing guest teachers, reedmaking (and adjusting) support through Reed Club, monthly 1:1 sessions, a community of support, and more!  If this level of support is for you, reach out to me, and we can talk about bringing you into the program!

For YOU, though, it might not be. Maybe you only want a taste right now. Maybe you’d love to address some of your most concrete concerns, but NOT dive into the full transformative program. Maybe the thought of vulnerably playing in front of other oboists is TOO MUCH.  Maybe you are in a busy work period or a raising-young-children season of your life.

For the first time ever, I am opening these live, curriculum-based classes. You could come in once for a class that intrigues you, or join for all seven!  Create your own bundle based on your schedule and your interest.

The homework, in every case, is based on your own existing repertoire. Whatever you are working on, let’s find a way to make it easier for you! You don’t have to come prepared with three Ferling etudes or La Scala, in other words. Where you are at is the exact right place.

And Your Artistry Matters.

What I am offering here is not available anywhere else. I have decades of experience teaching oboists at all levels, and I LOVE YOU ALL.

Classes are Wednesdays at 7 pm ET. You’ll be a full participant when you are there, able to ask questions live or to demonstrate your issues if you wish.
