My name is Katie Garringer, and I play the oboe. I have a masters degree in Oboe Performance from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. I have performed with members of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and am a freelance oboist in NYC.
I can craft interesting, appealing oboe lines for any song, of any genre (pop/folk/hip hop/etc.) I am classically trained and feel equally comfortable reading music and composing/improvising new lines to accompany your melody or chord structure.
