Educator

Bruckmann currently teaches oboe at UC Santa Cruz, at UC Davis, and through his private studio. He has been a visiting artist in academic settings including Stanford, Chapman, Northwestern, Lawrence, UW Milwaukee, UNM Albuquerque, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He has also devoted himself to the role of Teaching Artist, working (principally as a member of Quinteto Latino) in hundreds of public schools and community settings.

If you are interested in pursuing private lessons, know that I am always happy to consider taking on new students. I teach out of my North Oakland home studio, close to the Ashby BART station. While I try to make lesson days and times as consistent as possible, my touring and freelancing activities can make scheduling rather erratic – flexibility and understanding will be implied.

My rates are $75/hour. ($40/half hour, or $60/45-minute lessons may prove more appropriate at first for beginners and young players.) If financial pressures are a concern, please don’t hesitate to contact me all the same – I’m always willing to discuss non-monetary bartering possibilities.
