Robert Oades began to teach privately in Toronto in 1954. He taught at the Brodie School of Music and Modern Dance, gave master classes for the North York Board of Education (Toronto), and taught for the Association of Hebrew Schools of Toronto.
He began teaching trumpet at the University of Ottawa in 1966 and at Queen’s University in 1969. He was guest professor at the University of Michigan in 1986. Highly regarded as a teacher, he has frequently been an adjudicator and examiner.
Oades performed on recordings of Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks with the Telemann Society of New York (1961, Vox STDL-500-750) and the Edward Tarr Brass Ensemble (1976, Erato STU-70-944/Mus H Soc MHS-4505), the latter on baroque trumpet, and on a recording of Schütz' Christmas Oratorio with the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal (1980, Damzell DLM-813), also on baroque trumpet.
