I know that instruments have stereotypes pinned on them. Oboe players are seen as those who like berets, etc.

I’m not sure I’ve ever worn a beret. But of course the writer says we like berets, so I suppose that doesn’t mean we have to wear one. And sure, berets are okay. Does that mean I fit the stereotype?

When I think of oboists I think differently … control freaks. Obsessive compulsive. Perfectionists.

I’m not saying I’ve ever reached perfection, but our quest for the perfect reed and the perfect performance … well … it’s our goal, you know? One of those fun, unachievable goals. Fun!
