 Controlling/Voicing using Throat
Author: drizzledtoes

Hello all!

Sorry for another post, but i would like to know your thoughts about "voicing" on the oboe! From what i understand, you voice by controlling the opening of your throat i suppose? More open = slower air speed, more closed = faster air speed

I understand that the vowel "o" makes you more open and the vowel "e" makes you more closed. I can open my throat with ease but i can't make it closed at all, and i am not sure how to translate saying the vowel "e" into playing the oboe to make my throat more closed, as i feel i am always too open in my throat area, and this causes a lot of flatness. So if anyone has any comments to share which can help me feel or know how to close my throat so that i can certainly play less flat, especially in my higher octaves
