Faculty

Since it’s beginning, OCofOC has always been about education. Our first concert was a young musicians concerto competition. We have been happy to present this as an annual concert series, in collaboration with the California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAMPT) District VIII (Orange County and Junior Chamber Music. 

Many of our members are educators themselves. With a wide-array of areas to study, brass, composition, jazz, keyboard, percussion, strings, and woodwinds, there’s someone in the collective who can help. Please find the person who best fits your needs.
