About

I try to be a combination of the best teachers I've known. Learning music should be fun, challenging and rewarding. I help oboists discover a sweet tone and clean technique so we can delve into the repertoire of our amazing instrument.    .

Experience

Spoken Languages: English
Gina Pontoni became the Assistant Principal Oboist of The Alabama Symphony at the age of 20, a position she held for 9 years.  Gina moved to Australia in 1995 and served as Principal Oboist of Opera Australia under Simone Young while also working casually with The Sydney Symphony. 

Gina loves performing, recording and teaching oboists of all ages...this includes teaching the art of reed making.

She resides in Canberra with her husband and two Siamese cats, Max and George.
