When is it a good time to start making oboe reeds?
hi i am oboe player and when i went to band camp last year i learned a little bit about making reeds and i really want to learn more. oh and i am in eight grade.
I would love to hear from instructors out there about this. I know of someone who begins teaching reed making extremely early. Others don’t. Do you wait until a student reaches a certain level, or a certain age? Do tell!
I prefer having my students learn from someone else, although I will teach reed making if necessary. I just think others might be better at teaching the craft since I really despise it so much!
