Oboe Studio
  • The Capital Oboe Studio is a close-knit group of oboists who inspire and support each other. They can often be found whittling away at reeds together in the Reed Room which is equipped with a gouging machine, shaper and other tools. Oboe students at the Capital Conservatory have the opportunity to play in several of our outstanding ensembles such as:

    • Symphonic Winds
    • Capital University-Bexley Community Orchestra
    • Woodwind quintet or other small ensembles


    Performance opportunities are abundant at the weekly departmental and full conservatory recitals as well as evening concerts. The oboe curriculum focuses on developing both expressive and technical aspects of oboe performance, learning how to become your own teacher, and entering the professional world, as well as fundamental training in reed-making and the English horn. For more information about the Capital Oboe Studio, please contact Professor Costa.
