A definitive manual...enjoyable to read. There is so much enlightening information presented in this volume. I recommend it as a must read for the serious student and professional oboist. Even though it is intended mainly for oboe players, I also think that other musicians will find this book very useful, particularly other wind players. ----Robert Krause --Geoffrey Bridge, Double Reed News
The whole volume is imbued with sound practical help written with the knowledge gained from years of experience teaching and playing the oboe...The style of writing is very approachable...there are lots of helpful tips for playing awkward passages and imaginative teaching aids to overcome the common problems we all face as oboists. So, heartily recommended! ----Geoffrey Bridge, Double Reed News
