 Re: circular breathing
Author: Hotboy

The question is "Why do you want to do it?"

Any decent player can play for at least 30 seconds on one breath, so the only reason for circular breathing on the oboe is to play for longer than that.

I an understand it being useful for instruments that use a greater quantity of air, like clarinets and saxes, but unles you're going to play outrageously long phrases for some reason, it's not really necessary.

I worked on it for a while just for fun, but I never found it to be too useful, plus playing with vibrato is virtually impossible while circular breathing.

The only thing I have found it useful for is to avoid having to alternate breathing out and in on very long phrases in which there is no place for complete breaths.
