Crystal Gillaspy is currently a DMA candidate in oboe performance at the University of Iowa. She also holds a Masters of Music Education from Ohio University and a Bachelor's of Music from Miami University. Crystal has been very fortunate to have studied privately with Andrew Parker, Michele Fiala, Andrea Ridilla, and Kim Bryden.

She has performed locally with City Circle, Nolte Dance Academy, and with several University of Iowa student ensembles. While always looking for more ways to collaborate with other musicians, Crystal is a member of the COB Trio.

In addition to being a talented oboist, Crystal also has several years of experience as a band director in Ohio. Under her direction, The Fort Frye Bands performed at several Ohio Music Educator's Association sponsored Concert and Marching Band Adjudicated Events. She is particularly proud of her many students who received superior and excellent ratings at Solo and Ensemble Contest and who participated in honors bands and festivals.
