Understanding Oboe Idiosyncrasies: A Guide for Educators, Arrangers and Composers

  • thumbnail for Joshua Arvizu
  • This clinic focuses on the musical and technical challenges an oboist or English hornist regularly encounters. Educators will gain an understanding of the problems their students face and learn to edit or rewrite parts to make them more idiomatic. The clinic will also provide composers and arrangers with tools to make informed scoring decisions for both instruments.
