Double Reeds Refresher

All interested must have their own bassoon and oboe reeds. A limited number of oboes and bassoons from Hartt are available for use during the workshop.

Are you an educator seeking to hone your double reed instructional and performance skills? Double Reeds Refresher provides a comprehensive review of performance and pedagogical practices for oboe and bassoon. Learn to teach concepts of tone, technique, reed adjusting, and style more effectively by enriching your own performance ability through varied instructional methods. While performing on each instrument daily, you will enhance your knowledge of double reed fundamentals, learn to apply advanced techniques unique to each instrument, and improve your ability to impart refined skills through standards-based instruction. Combined with discussions about instruments, accessories, method books, repertoire, repair, and notable artists, you will identify resources and acquire confidence to deliver highly effective instruction. You will also gain the reed adjusting skills necessary to have students playing their best. Tools will be available to borrow, and basic reed adjustment kits will be available to purchase. If interested in purchasing a basic reed adjusting kit please email the professor before the first day of the workshop. Instruments will be available for student use if needed, but both bassoon and oboe reeds should be bought by the student. Reeds can also be purchased on the first day of the workshop. This course is open to students of all backgrounds and levels of double reed experience!
