Financial Aid and Scholarships

Oboe students have weekly lessons with Dr. Fiala and participate in weekly, small-group reedmaking lessons. Oboe students meet in a weekly studio class and perform in front of their classmates several times per semester. Each oboe student has the opportunity to play and perform on English horn.
We also explore topics pertinent to the oboe including oboe adjustment and maintenance, history of the oboe, world oboes, performance psychology and performance health.
Oboe students participate in weekly reedmaking classes and have access to the reedmaking room whenever Glidden Hall is open.
