Basically all my students, both adult beginner and younger students I start pretty much the same way. A Tune a Day ( yes, I know) is a good book to start and the little duets are useful too - Basically a student spends very little time on that, and I do this in conjunction with long notes and scales. I then introduce Hinke Elementary Method. Real junior beginners then go onto books like 'THe young Oboist" books 1-2-3 for easy graded pieces, and then I suggests the adult beginners to get Whitney Tustin's excellent compilation " Solos for the Oboe Player" as there is some great material in there, and most of my adult students have enjoyed their lessons and produce a pleasing tone. Of course there are no hard and fast rules, but long notes and scales are something that all students are made to work on as a basis. What I do give them from this, really depends on their age, musical background, the sort of music they are interested in...and what I think at the time is going to assist their musical journey.
