 Re: Starting Oboe ?

Dear all

Thanks for the tips. Definitively would go for a proper teacher, both I have identified are oboe teachers, with qualifications based on oboe, one plays oboe in a semi-professional orchestra and the other specialises in teaching oboe only.

I would look to rent at first for sure, there are also rent to buy schemes which could attractive as they take up to x months rent as a down payment on the instrument. The same is also available for bassoon, but a bassoon teacher is more difficult (only found one who has a qualification, but he mainly teaches clarinet and sax, whether this is out of choice or lack of bassoon interest, I can’t say).

I see what you say about bassoon being a better combination, but I actually found more sheet music for flute and oboe than flute and bassoon. Probably will go for obie and see how it goes, assuming the teachers have spare teaching slots.

Listening to bassoon I found it having less variety in pieces compared to oboe and somehow was less appealing in the sound, sounding a bit flat and less vibrant. Maybe I did not listen to the right things, but did the “usual” Mozart, Vivaldi, etc.

I heard it is the one with biggest resistance, but I tried flute and was not happy to not have any resistance, I think I would like to have some feedback when playing and somehow the flute does not give me that. But might be I am totally off the mark.

Any more tips are very much welcome.

Best

Andy
