I have now updated my list of double reed instructors in the US. This is not to say it’s complete, but just that the links that were broken were fixed (so many schools have changed the URL of their page(s) and of course I’ve not kept up). In addition many new names were added as old names were removed. I still appreciate any help I can get with the page though; I’ll never keep up completely!

The next absolutely HUGE task would be updating all the double reed players in the orchestras around the world rosters**. Truth be told, I’m considering deleting those. I honestly don’t know that I can handle the upkeep. The task is truly overwhelming. Does anyone even look at those? I’m guessing not! So we’ll see … they may disappear instead.

Ah, I think I know what I’ll do about the orchestras of the world. Rather than list all the players’ names, which change so frequently, I’ll slowly go through and update links to the orchestra sites and roster pages, and delete the names entirely. I realize I’ll lose visitors who are searching on names, but at least it’s a quicker solution to this mess.

IF I hear from a ton of folks suggesting otherwise I’ll consider it, but if not, that’s the answer to this, I think!

Update #2
I’ve deleted the double reed players around the world for now. Miss it? Let me know, please.


  1. Vladimir Gurevich

    And where is our mutual friend Michael Adduci, who just became Dr. Adduci?

  2. Yikes! Am I missing Mike?! Shame on me … except that when I first did this they didn’t have any bios up. (That’s my excuse and I’m stickin’ to it! But I’ll go look for him now!)

    Also Tom Nugent (Univ. of Pacifica)

  4. Got it! Thanks! :-)
