How does one build up endurance on the oboe? I've been playing for 6 months now (after playing clarinet for 40 years) and I still don't have the lip or lung endurance. I'm in good physical condition, so that's not the problem. It just seems like it takes a lot of effort to get a good quality tone. Then I run out of breath and stamina. I want to increase my lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes, but my instructor said I needed the endurance first. It's a catch-22 in my opinion. Thanks for your help. You guys have been a wealth of knowledge for me.
