The Story of the Noticeably Better Oboes and English Horns.

Every Oboe and English Horn that Carlos sells and repairs gets at least one hour of attention – playing, testing, and elevating the instrument to play with its richest and fullest voice.

This unique ability enables him to detect and find the exact detail that needs adjustment, and to sense the full potential of an instrument just from playing it. It allows him to bring out the fullest, richest, and most beautiful voice of each Oboe and English Horn he works with.

If you ever get a chance to stop by Carlos’ Shop, do. You will be amazed by the difference in quality and voice of Carlos’ Oboes – especially if you’ve been anywhere else.

It is this incredible mastery that has led Carlos to be recognized and respected worldwide.

The Story of Carlos Coelho

Music Runs in Carlos’s Blood.

Carlos was born in Brazil and was first taught the oboe by his father, a director of the Conservatorio Musical de Tatui, one of the largest music schools in South America.

Carlos’ brother, Tadeu, is a Professor of Flute at the North Carolina School for the Arts. His brother Benjamin, formerly the Principal Bassoonist of the Teatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro, is now a Bassoon Professor at the University of Iowa School of Music. And his brother Luiz, a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, is now a band director in California.

A Masters in Oboe Performance

Carlos Coelho later moved to the United States to pursue education in Oboe Performance. He studied Oboe at the Manhattan School of Music, at SUNY Purchase (State Univ. of New York), at Temple University (Philadelphia), and at CUNY (City Univ. of New York) – where he is a candidate for the Doctorate in Oboe Performance Degree.

His teachers included Henry Schuman, Elaine Douvas, and Louis Rosenblatt. He also studied with Ingo Goritzki at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, Germany.

Carlos and His Oboe Shop

After getting his Masters, Carlos was the Principal Oboist of the Campinas Symphony Orchestra and faculty member of the University of Campinas in Brazil. Carlos has also performed with the International Chamber Music Ensemble of the Associazione Musicale Riky Haertelt from Torino, Italy.

A few years later, Carlos moved to Indianapolis and started his own Oboe repair and sales business. Lorée decided he was just what they were looking for, and the rest is history.
