I don't personally play oboe (yet), but I am in the process of writing something with oboe for a competition, and it would be hard to avoid the high E6 (the E three ledger lines above the staff) in the main melody. How hard/easy is this note to play for beginning, intermediate, or advanced players?
Thank you very much - this will help a lot!
Hey! I'm auditioning for a part in a woodwind quintet, and I need a prepared piece. This is coming up in about a week, so is there a nice Oboe solo out there for me to play? I would prefer it be easy enough to pick up within a week, but not too easy. Any help? Maybe a classical piece or a known composer? Thank you all!
I recently figured out how to do vibrato on the oboe. Instead of using my jaw or my embrochure, I used the sternum to make the vibrato clear. Any advice on how I can improve my vibrato and get it to sound more pure? When is the right time to use vibrato, and what song styles is it usually seen in?
