Oboe Reeds

Good oboe reeds are one of three elements (i.e. a good instrument, a good teacher, and good reeds) that are essential for oboe students to progress properly. Bad oboe reeds allow the student to play in a way that more easily develops bad habits that will last for years into the future. Good reeds result in less frustration for the student that practices correctly.

O artigo seguinte tem como objectivo demonstrar como se deve aplicar a informação descrita no primeiro artico entitulado por "How To Practice"  Como Praticar.  Tocar um instrumento de sopro é uma expiriência fisica é impossivel a qualquer pessoa aprender e entender completamente o primeiro artigo, nos sete pontos até que eles sejam colocados em praticar com a devida routina de pratica diária.Alguns irão "tentar"  e depois vão dizer que não funciona para eles. A verdade da questão é que ele nunca entenderão o que foi que experimentaram .
