    I love meeting and building a rapport with new students. Each person is so different in their experiences and outlook, so I find it incredibly enriching to be able to meet each student at their level and work together to move forward.

    Oboe Teacher (South East London) Picture As a renowned international oboe soloist may or may not have once said: “If you have a good reed, you don’t need to practice. If you don’t have one, there’s no point”. Sadly he wasn’t too far off the truth! Some things to look for when buying a reed or deciding whether your own/your child’s...
