Jamie Sanidad is a performing oboist, private instructor, and reed maker in the greater Seattle area. In addition to teaching her private studio, she also coaches oboe sectionals in middle and high school band classes. Through her oboe reed business, PNW Reeds, she makes and sells reeds and reed-making materials to oboists across the country. She received her Master of Music degree from the University of Washington under the instruction of Mary Lynch, and previously completed her undergraduate studies with Linda Strommen at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. A teacher to grade school oboists as well as to working professionals who play on the side, she hopes to both inspire and nurture a love for music in all of her students. When she is not playing the oboe or working on reeds, Jamie enjoys tending to her houseplants, playing with her dog, and rock climbing.
