Soy profesor de oboe del Conservatorio Superior de Navarra. Reserva tu clase y te ayudaré a mejorar con tu instrumento

Hi, I'm Juan Mari Ruiz, oboe teacher at the Higher Music Conservatory of Navarre (Spain), and would love to share my experience with you.

I am dedicated to teaching the oboe in the top grade from very young, which has allowed me to learn a lot from my own experience as an active instrumentalist and the students who have gone through my class. Not only to learn to play the instrument, but also to know and be alerted to problems that may arise and have a repertoire of exercises and strategies to prevent and resolve them if necessary.

I like technical working, but without forgetting that the ultimate goal is to use those skills to convey the audience our feelings and musical ideas by oboe. For this I analyzed all the factors involved in the production of sound (breathing, mouth, throat, tongue, etc.) and the role of each, so that I have a series of specific exercises for each technical aspect desired to improve. With a well-established technique is easier to modulate the sound with comfort and safety and can truly enjoy music while interpreting a work.

It would love to share with you the pleasure I feel when I play the oboe.

See you soon

Hola: Soy Juan Mari Ruiz, profesor de oboe del Conservatorio Superior de Música de Navarra, y me gustaría compartir mi experiencia contigo.

Me dedico a la enseñanza del oboe en el grado superior desde muy joven, lo que me ha permitido aprender mucho por mi propia experiencia como instrumentista en activo y por la de los alumnos que han pasado por mi clase. No solamente para aprender a tocar el instrumento, sino también para conocer y estar prevenido ante problemas que se pueden presentar y tener un repertorio de ejercicios y estrategias para evitarlos y resolverlos si es necesario.

Me gusta trabajar a fondo la técnica, pero sin olvidar que el objetivo final es utilizar esas destrezas para transmitir al espectador nuestros sentimientos e ideas musicales mediante el oboe. Para ello he analizado todos los factores que intervienen en la producción del sonido (respiración, embocadura, garganta, lengua, etc.) y la función de cada uno, de forma que cuento con una serie de ejercicios específicos para cada aspecto técnico que se desee mejorar. Con una técnica bien comprendida y asentada es más fácil modular el sonido con comodidad y seguridad y podemos disfrutar verdaderamente de la música mientras interpretamos una obra.

Me encantaría compartir contigo el placer que siento al tocar el oboe.

I am a beginner oboist, and have really enjoyed my first few lessons with Juan. He plays with beautiful tone, and within those few lessons I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my tone too. He not only has given me corrections, but also told me HOW to make the correction in my technique to achieve the result. I look forward to every lesson.

Juan Mari Ruiz was my first oboe teacher and I was studying with him for eight years. He entered me in the world of music and made me appreciate the pleasure of playing it. His advices have always helped me and am still considering.
