  • Above and Beyond Basic Oboe Technique Editor's Pick

    Oboe Teacher (Chester) Picture The technical terms on Double-Tonguing and Multiphonics often sound very ominous to a lot of oboe players.

However focusing solely on those will not guarantee my students to succeed. There are many important physical aspects that one must consider. The...
