    Oboe Teacher (South East London) Picture Many children are keen to learn an instrument from a young age, and parents are often concerned about judging when is the right time for their child to begin. When it comes to learning woodwind, the age of the child is less of a factor than their size. They need to be big enough to hold their...

A good way is to break it up into chunks - scales for 10 minutes, finger exercises for 10 and then pieces at the end. I always try and structure my practice so that the thing I enjoy most is at the end of my session....
