C’mon … watch the darn thing, Dan. Don’t just read the feed! 😉


  1. I will admit that when this showed up in google reader, I was slightly freaked out.

  2. Hmmm… why so? Do tell! 🙂

  3. Because my name is Dan, and I don’t actually watch most of the videos, I just read the feed 😉

  4. Oh I love it! That would be a bit freaky.

    My husband’s name is Dan. 🙂

  5. So you’re not using google magics to stalk me? That’s relieving to know 🙂

    So, it’s christmastime, and naturally that means I get FREE REEDS! An orchestraer I know (not an oboeer) sent me a link to some german cut reeds on eBay, and asked if I’d use them. German scares me. Apparently they’re a shorter cut, and they make a darker tone. Ever tried them?

  6. I can’t play German reeds … they don’t work with my embouchure and the sound I want. What does your oboe teacher say?

  7. Haven’t seen him in two weeks, between my concert and his concert and christmas

  8. My guess is that he would suggest sticking to the long scrape, but who knows? Maybe you can email him. (I communicate a lot with my students via email … so handy!)
