  • On Performing French Oboe Music

    Oboe Teacher (York) Picture Dutilleux, Poulenc and the French Oboe Sonata: Approaches and Interpretation The Oboe sonatas of both Francis Poulenc and Henri Dutilleux are extraordinary examples of twentieth century French musical writing. Where one is very much an example of mature style, the other shows a blossoming...

  • Practicing the oboe

    Oboe Teacher (West London) Picture It seems that it is a common truth that for many disciplines ranging from music to soufflé cooking that, practice makes perfect. Music teachers for generations have been exhorting us, their pupils to practice outside their lessons in order to maintain individual progress; however, it is a...
