Reeds and Reed Making
Reeds are the key to success in mastering the oboe.
Students who play on good quality handmade reeds have:
a deeper, well rounded tone
play better in tune
reeds that feel more comfortable and last longer
In addition, students who learn the skill of reed making:
never have to wait on mail order reeds to arrive
have complete control over the construction of their reeds
possess a skill that can be used to make extra money in college
Students in my studio are able to purchase customized handmade reeds, reed making kits and equipment, and can begin learning the art of reed making as early as the 7th grade.
