Yes, you must have a teacher, or at least an oboe guru. Your biggest challenge will be reeds, and you cannot solve that alone. You need someone to keep you in reeds that work, or you will not be able to progress. Even once you have reeds that play, there is the problem of reeds that play in tune, or you will not be able to play with others. I'm about three years ahead of you on the learning curve, and I just played with a sinfionetta as principle oboe. I could not have done it alone!

Maybe my reed problem is bigger, given that I play American scrape reeds.
