A Note from Maryn

Dear Oboe Player,

We’re really excited about today’s Oboe Talk Interview with Erin Hannigan, Principal Oboe of the Dallas Symphony.

I’ve known Erin for a long time and she’s a really great player. We’re so grateful that she agreed to do this interview!

You can read the whole interview here.

If you know of an oboist who we should interview, please contact us.

They can be famous, not famous or somewhere in between. The purpose of these interviews is to shine a spotlight on oboists who are doing great things and to use those stories to help encourage and motivate the next generation of oboe players.

Just a reminder about the MKL Reeds Oboe Stuff Marketplace… That’s where you can post oboe related stuff for sale. The listings are free so PLEASE spread the word. If you have an oboe to sell, you can post it there. If you’re selling oboe tools, they belong there as well. It’s kind of like classifieds for the oboe world.

To get started, click this link and just click the “Place Ad” button.

Please use it if you have something to sell and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

"A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.

The Oboe Tip

Simple Tips To Make Your Life Easier

If your reed is sharp, you can try pulling it out of the oboe a few millimeters to help get it down to pitch in a pinch. Another trick is to soak it for longer and pinch the tip open slightly.

Overall, make sure you’re not playing with too much reed in your mouth, a nasty habit we all easily fall into.
