Oboe Reeds

Good oboe reeds are one of three elements (i.e. a good instrument, a good teacher, and good reeds) that are essential for oboe students to progress properly. Bad oboe reeds allow the student to play in a way that more easily develops bad habits that will last for years into the future. Good reeds result in less frustration for the student that practices correctly.
