Oboe Studio

Welcome to the Ohio State Oboe Studio!

Greetings on behalf of the Ohio State oboe studio! The Buckeye Oboes are more than a group of classmates, they are a tight-knit community taught to support one another and help each other grow as both musicians and people. Please explore our pages to learn more about the studio, professor, how to apply/audition, and locate pedagogical resources.
