The Oboe Department
at New Music School

Redefining oboe lessons in Chicago.

The oboe department at NMS aims to help students develop the necessary skills to successfully pursue a career in the performing arts, and most importantly, start beginning students on a path to great success through our fun and engaging programs. In support of each student's personal growth is a dynamic program designed to continue technical and physical development. Not only do we hope to build strong beginning to advanced oboe players, we strive to motivate complete musicians.

Oboe students are exposed to artist teachers through master classes with internationally known oboe educators along with the opportunity to attend other instructional master classes. Additionally, oboe students at NMS learn how the their instrument relates to all the fine arts by working with renowned professional vocalists, dancers, artists, and actors.
