 Re: best oboe to buy for a student

I would suggest you look at a Howarth S20 oboe or a Bulgeroni student model. I know the Howarth has a third octave key as well as the LH F key that her current instrument is missing. The Fossati Tiery is worth a look too - very fine instrument. The thing is, you need to spend a bit of money to get a good instrument. The resale value is better, and a reasonable investment would take her right up to college probably before she may need to upgrade again. The left hand F is not absolutely essential - I hardly ever use it..but many do swear by it and it does make playing certain passages a little easier. Do seek advice of her oboe teacher, or a professional in your area as they may have a good second hand instrument. I am sure her teacher will have a fairly strong idea on what will be best for her, and has the advantage of knowing her, and her playing.
