Obonik  (being me, Nik) also provides lessons on oboe playing and reed making!  If you, or someone you know is in need of one on one lessons (or facetime or skype), I am here to help!   Here are a few testimonials from past and present students. 

Nik is an amazing teacher! He has an amazing ability to build a comfortable rappor with his students. He is patient, kind and able to inspire his students in their musical journey. I would recommend Nik highly for anyone looking to take oboe lessons.
Nik is a superb teacher. Our son has made tremendous strides while studying with Nik. He is great at motivating our son and easy to work with.
Nik is an excellent oboe instructor as he always pushes his students to do better. It was a pleasure having Nik come into our home & give our son oboe lessons.
Nik is not only an extremely talented oboist, but he's also an exceptional teacher and has a great personality. He is able to take a difficult instrument and make it fun. My daughter took lessons with him for five years starting as a young child and I always enjoyed visiting with him and watching his teaching techniques and methods to motivate. We miss him now that she is no longer taking lessons with him.
Nik is an excellent oboe teacher. My son has been taking lessons with Nik since fall 2013. He knows exactly what you need to become a better oboe player. Nik helped us find the right instrument (we started with a rental before purchasing). I trust Nik's judgement. He makes awesome reeds too.
Nik was an exceptional teacher and mentor to my daughter, who studied with him for about eight years. She was able to become an accomplished young oboist under his tutelage. We will always be grateful for Nik.
Nik was an amazing teacher for my son. He is very knowledgable and clearly has a love of the oboe and a desire to teach.

I would love to hear from you and help you with all of your oboe needs!  Please feel free to contact me about scheduling a free trial lesson or any questions you may have!!
