Teaching the Beginner Oboist: The First Lesson

In this session Alison Jepson will teach a half hour "first lesson" to a willing volunteer*, followed by question time.

Alison has been teaching the oboe to students of all ages and levels for twenty five years and has a large teaching studio. She has already started ten new students on the oboe this year!

This session will be of interest to itinerant woodwind teachers, advanced school and university students who may be interested in taking on some students, as well as to oboists who are already teaching.


Saturday 13 April
11.30am - 12.45pm
Philharmonia Hall
427 Dominion Rd              
Auckland

If you are interested in attending but cannot make 11.30am Sat 12 April, would you let me know?             

Cost:  New Zealand Double Reed Society Members  FREE
Adult non-members  $20.00
Student non-members $10.00


UPDATES:
We have a volunteer from Aorere high school in Papatoetoe to be the "guinea pig" for this session. He has been asking to learn to play oboe for ages so is the ideal person.

KGE Reeds have donated free reeds for anyone who attends and is not an oboist (eg University students, other woodwind itinerants). Many thanks to Martin Lee.

Please would you let us know if you will be attending the session by Monday 8 April?
