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!
