I just got my first oboe today. I have played clarinet for a few years, and would say I am an Intermediate player, maybe not professional but you get the point. I want some tips on playing it, such as embouchure tips, how NOT to break the reed, protecting the oboe, maintenance, etc. I already know about soaking the reed for a little bit if it’s new, and the basic embouchure as well. Also, after I have been able to play some simple songs, what about some help with tone and vibrato, too? Feel free to use any musically nerdy words as you want.

The “maybe not professional…” really did make me smile.

And, okay, I sort of rolled my eyes too. You get the idea. ;-)

I read it here.
