What you will learn

It is much more difficult to diagnose problems with oboes, not only for players, but also by repairers.  This workshop will cover many of the difficulties that oboes present as well as many of the techniques that I use for servicing and diagnosing issues on oboes.

You will also learn:

·         How to disassemble keywork on an oboe

·         How to use the adjusting screws to regulate the keywork.

·         How corks and pads are replaced

·         Importance of fine-tuning the keywork

·         The importance of oiling wooden oboes

·         Information sheets to summarise what you have learned

You will need to come equipped with an oboe. This is important, since it will be a hands-on event. We will not have spare oboes to loan for this workshop.
