 Re: Can an oboe be march?

it is possible to march an oboe, however it is not at all good for the instrument or for you. i also play oboe and am in marching band, and i wondered why i had to switch instruments. its a pain. however, if you switch to clarinet or flute, it will mess with your embouchure as well as confuse you with fingerings. my director suggested i switch to playing a mellophone, a brass instrument, which will not mess with memorizing fingerings/ confuse you and it won't hurt your embouchure at all. switching to brass is really hard, as i am finding out, but playing percussion would be easier. basically, do what your director needs for your marching band, and come to grips with the fact that you can't march your best friend (aka the oboe).
