WOW - Wicked Oboe Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Lead Tutor - Rachel Broadbent
Tutor and Reedmaking Specialist - Iona Walker
This WOW workshop is designed for beginners through to grade 4 level students. The day is divided up into sections covering different aspects of oboe technique in fun ways that keep the students engaged and having fun. It is designed so that all students, whatever their level or age, will be able to join in. As these workshops are online it does mean that the microphones are off for some of the time but we do make sure we have some zoom fun creating some soundscapes as a group. As part of the workshop you can join in the Oboe Workshops Virtual Ensemble, recording your part of a piece arranged especially for this event. Your recording will be put together with all the participants from the 3 August workshops to create the virtual ensemble and uploaded to You Tube. Topics covered during the day will be Warm ups, Breathing, Embouchure, Finger Twisters, How oboe reeds are made with Iona Walker from Iona Reeds, Virtual Ensemble rehearsal and there will also be a virtual concert from the tutors. There is also time for quesions and problem solving so if any of the participants have any questions they can ask at any point. The workshops are designed to be very interactive, informative and fun!
