How long am I looking at to stop sounding like a tattoo gun being waved around, and start sounding like a musical instrument? Any tips how to make a vaguely respectable sound?

(Yes, the person is talking about oboe!)

I honestly used to think Huey Lewis was singing, in The Heart of Rock & Roll: “Now the oboe may be barely breathing.” Ha! Take that, oboes!
