Well.. I learned over the last six months as an adult.

I used the method book by roger page. Obvioualy i was able to work through it faster than a child.

Another course i think is very useful is peter wastall "learn as u play oboe", and then that is followed by oboe "grade by grqde". After grade five of that, i worked throufh hinke studies, ferling. Then i did the grade eight exam. (abrsm)

That was me.

As a general rule when i teach an adult learner i do use the same materials as i use with a child except in a slightpy different order.

Although with someome who can already play an instrument... In a way, all they need is a fingering chary, some well chosen repertoire,

In my other instruments, i give an adult beginner the suzuki book one for repertoire and technique study, and then a book which has a clear fingering chart. And instructions re breathing and placement of instrunebt in the mouth, posture etc.

Oboe is not particularly resource rich compared to some of my other instruments. I plan to write a suzuki style book for oboe if at any time in the future i get asked to teach oboe.
