I’ve been playing oboe for … um … over forty years (closer to fifty, really), and I’ve yet to “max out my skills”. 😉

Ah, innocence! (I prefer to think it’s that, in any case.)

Should I play the Cello, Bassoon, Oboe or Euphonium? Or should I learn conducting? Or both?

I have recently ‘maxed out’ my skills with the clarinet and piano. There are no more grades for me to take for them (besides diploma) so now I’m wondering what instrument I should play next!? I’d like to be able to play a range of instruments which would help me with my composition and (maybe if I start learning) conducting skills.
