Robert Bloom (1908-1994), one of the foremost oboists of his time and a former member of the Yale School of Music faculty, is the subject of a new biography. Robert Bloom: The Story of a Working Musician brings together essays, correnspondence, reviews, anecdotes and more. It also incorporates Bloom’s book on pedagogy dictated in 1975-1976: The Oboe, A Musical Instrument, as well as a disc of two chapters, one on reed-making and one a discography.

The above is from the Yale School of Music blog. RTWT. (No one says all musicians spell, eh?)

I see the book available at RDG. Once I start getting our finances back in order I’ll need to pick this one up.
