Carly J. Gordon

Oh hello there.

undefinedMy name is Carly, and I’m an oboist, English horn player, writer, educator, arts administrator, and peanut butter enthusiast active throughout South Florida (and sometimes Canada).

You can hire me to do things such as play the oboe, teach the oboe, or write about music and musicians.


Hire me for your church service, wedding, fundraiser, or Galentine’s brunch! I’m an experienced, energetic, and eclectic South Florida musician who can’t wait to work with you.


I love to use historical research to tell compelling, socially informed stories about music. How can we build artistic spaces that are inclusive, inquisitive, and socially engaged?


I am highly experienced in engaging young students in focused, disciplined practice, and have worked with oboists ages 10-65, each with unique musical goals and levels of experience.

Arts admin

Specializing in curation and communications, I’m passionate about making music happen and bringing creative projects to life.
