Bob Atherholt, principal oboist in the Houston Symphony and professor at Rice University, knows how to make a good reed. In this video we will follow Bob as he takes a raw piece of cane and transforms it into a musical instrument. Buy it here.

You’ll find two other videos if you visit this link.

I’ve not seen mindbites.com before, so I will have to see how all this works, but it might be fun to have these. I know several oboists who have studied with Mr. Atherholt and they are mighty fine players.
