Professional Oboist

Jillian Kouzel: Professional Oboist

Did you do an internet search for an oboe instructor around me? Well, you're in luck, because you've found Jillian Kouzel, professional oboist and instructor. While it is easy to find a professional piano teacher or even an expert flamingo guitar instructor, it may be more challenging to find a music educator and professor with experience in orchestra performance for private music lessons.


Jillian Kouzel is 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—one of the oboe's varieties. Your new oboe instructor around me also offers private music lessons at her studio in Ann Arbor and in Brighton, Michigan. She works with students ranging from beginners to high school level. As a professional oboist, she holds a position as 3rd Oboe/English Horn with the Lima Symphony Orchestra in Lima, Ohio. And she actively performs with the Michigan Philharmonic, Southwest Symphony Orchestra, Dearborn Symphony, Adrian Symphony, Ballet Theatre of Toledo, and the University of Michigan Theatre Department Pit Orchestra.


As a music educator and professor, Kouzel has a passion for performance and teaching. To that end, she aspires to pursue a lasting career as a chamber music oboist, orchestral musician, and professor of music. Your music lessons from an oboe instructor around me with Professor Kouzel will inspire you to achieve your musical goals.


Please get in touch via email if you or your child would like private music lessons from a professional oboist whose mission is to "promote growth, freedom of expression, and unlock the potential for a successful and fulfilling life."
