… and to my students: notice that bit about “long tones, scales and technical studies”?!

Both Ryan and Adrienne are people I work with and enjoy tremendously. (In fact, they will be playing in the upcoming production of Madama Butterfly that I sadly must miss due to a major conflict with Aladdin.) You will definitely benefit from their instruction and I highly recommend this camp.

Left Coast Oboes Summer Camp
July 15-19, 2019
Redwood City, CA
Started in 2018, Left Coast Oboes is a summer day camp for middle and high school oboe players of all levels. Dedicated educators, Adrienne Malley and Ryan Zwahlen, wanted to create a fun and nurturing environment for students to learn reed making, study standard orchestral and solo repertoire, and play in an ensemble setting.

what can the matter be? (If you can’t see it, well … I guess that’s good for Azusa!)

This just hurts my heart. A school advertising for “advanced study” and the poor English horn player is holding his horn that way? (I’m assuming they flipped the photo so he was facing that direction. In fact I know that to be the case. BAD idea, Azusa. Very bad idea.)
