Developing the Basic Fundamentals and Musical Integrity of Young Oboists

  • thumbnail for Ann Adams
  • This clinic will be directed towards teachers and students alike. I will focus on the development of the fundamentals of woodwind playing specifically for the young oboist and address the issue of raising their level of awareness when playing within the ensemble. My primary objective is to give effective guidance that will enable your students to mature as self-motivated and independent musicians/oboists.
