Dr. Caplan's text covers absolutely every aspect of oboe playing while dispelling common myths and misconceptions, especially in the chapters discussing the diaphragm and vibrato. He chooses his words carefully, and clearly explains why certain suggestions offered to students by their teachers can be problematic. However, this is in no way a dry read! Dr. Caplan is a talented writer, and he crafted an engaging and occasionally humorous text despite the technical subjects he tackled.
This is a comprehensive resource for anyone who plays or teaches the oboe. I also want to note that GIA did a beautiful job in the printing - the layout is attractive and flows well, the anatomical diagrams are excellent, and the spiral binding allows you to keep it on your music stand to refer to during a practice session. Oboemotions is a must-have!
