Are you searching for a freelance orchestral musician who can play as a soloist or with a small group?

As a freelance musician and music educator, Kouzel works with students ranging from beginners to high school level, offering private music lessons at her studio in Ann Arbor and in Brighton, Michigan. Kouzel is also adjunct Oboe Faculty at Saginaw Valley State University, teaching 13 applied lessons throughout the semester, covering orchestral, solo, and etude repertoire, reed making, and training on the English horn. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Jillian always had a passion for both performance as an orchestral musician and as a freelance musician who teaches. She's working on her Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree from the University of Michigan, after recently completing a double Master’s degree in both Music Performance and Chamber Music.


When you hire a freelance musician to play at an event, the type of music makes all the difference. An oboist adds a classic touch as an orchestral musician and can also play as a soloist at art openings and other events.
