OBOE
Many people say that the oboe has the most beautiful sound in the woodwind family.
It is similar in length to a clarinet but is narrower, lighter and uses a double reed.
Despite being reputed to be the hardest woodwind instrument to play,  it can be extremely rewarding with many lovely melodies written for it.

“Thank you for teaching me how to play the oboe

and making it so much fun.”

To play an oboe you must have your front four adult teeth which are ideally fairly even and not protruding. When playing it is necessary to curl the top lip over the top teeth, so either large front teeth or a short top lip could make the oboe a difficult choice.

Covered holes make the fingering much easier than the clarinet. 8 to 9 years old is a good age to start learning the oboe.
