  • The Oboe: Questions Answered Editor's Pick

    Oboe Teacher (Hemel Hempstead) Picture Is it too difficult? The oboe is known to be one of the most difficult instruments of the orchestra, but it doesn't have to be like that! With careful instruction and care, I believe that anyone can play the oboe. What's a reed? The reed is perhaps the most important part of the oboe because...

They are things to be avoided in pieces to be steered clear of. Many oboists avoid pieces from the modern repertoire as some of them include these techniques. Of course, many players...
  • Madeleine Dring and her oboe music Editor's Pick

    Oboe Teacher (South West London) Picture Madeleine Dring has remained a relatively unknown female composer since her death in 1977, but to the student oboist she is more recognisable. She married English oboist Roger Lord and as a result composed a lot of music for the oboe. Her light-hearted music had a distinctly English feel to it...
