About S.R. Meloy Studio

Hello! I teach a variety of music lessons in Olympia, WA, but I specialize in oboe and composition. I do teach other woodwinds as well. I have been a musician all my life, and I enjoy sharing my love for the art with students of all ages. Online lessons are also available for most fields.

I teach oboe, clarinet, saxophone, composition and piano.

Please do not hesitate to check out my website or to contact me for further information. Be sure to let me know that you found me through this profile!

People I have worked with include Sam Jones, composer in residence for the Seattle Symphony; Bernard Shapiro, Principle (Emeritus) Oboe for the Seattle Symphony; Shannon Spicciati, Seattle Symphony and PLU instructor; and Greg Youtz, composer and PLU professor.

I currently look forward to working with many other great people in my life!

Question and answer

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I have been a musician all of my life and to teach it only makes sense. I worked for a while as a youth symphony conductor, which was a blast, but I find individual instruction to be more effective. Also, as for my writing, I have been doing that my entire life as well but only recently decided to pursue publishing.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I teach out of a studio in Olympia and I will be offering online lessons as well. These are in the fields of oboe, flute, clarinet, saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor), and music composition/song writing. I have a few students in each field currently but also with room to grow. Please do not hesitate to call or email!

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. A tenor saxophone student of mine has just made the All State Band here in WA. CONGRATULATIONS!

A flute student of mine, 5th grade, has written (with my help) and performed her second original piece for Flute and accompaniment.

An Oboe student is principle oboe in the SOGO Junior Orchestra

An Oboe student of mine graduated and received a large scholarship to attend Boston Conservatory studying the oboe.

Online lessons are also available for people out of my area!
