 Re: Controlling/Voicing using Throat

I have never believed in closing the throat. The oboe requires high pressure at the reed and closing the throat cuts the volume of air and reduces pressure.

When I play the high register, I close the lips very tightly while keeping the teeth and throat wide open and blowing very hard. The resulting high pressure keeps the reed vibrating, the open teeth keeps the tone rich and the pitch from going sharp, and the closed lips keep the volume from becoming too loud and the tone from becoming shrill.

If you feel the need to close the throat to reduce pressure, then your lip and cheek muscles need strengthening.
