Hi... I'd like to know if you have an oboe method to suggest for beginners.
If possible, adapted for young adult or for children ? (but 1st for yound adult)

If you have reference, explanation why you like it... pros/cons... it will be great ! and if you also have a ref of this oboe method in French version, this will be fantastic !!

Thanks a lot.

I use the Gekeler Method, Book 1 with my beginner and advanced beginner students. It has basic music rhythms for complete beginners that you can skip if the student has had some previous musicial training. Not published in French.

I have found the "Tune a Day" useful, and then generally follow this up with the Hinke Elementary method. For Pieces, I start with "The Young Oboist" 2 volumes to start, and then start work on some of the pieces in Whitney Tustin's "Solos for the Oboe Player", and of course, plenty of long notes and scales. A lot depends on the age of the student, what musical background etc that they have come from, but I have fond this productive. After the Hinke, I usually start them on the Ferling 48 studies, but start with some of the easier ones. I have never seen the Gekeler Method mentioned above, but I know it's a popular choice and I am sure is useful. I was 15 when I started the oboe, and my teacher (because I also played piano and had played clarinet before, started me straight on long notes and scales to start, and then straight away into Ferling and Solos for the Oboe Player after a few months.

Thanks for your answers.
I will also look for the Delcambre method... (I probably learn on the really first/draft version of that one)
