Event description

Description

We invite budding oboe and bassoon players to attend the ongoing Double Reed Academy at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. Participation is free!

Bassoonists will have the opportunity to learn from former principal bassoonist with the Munich Philharmonic Lyndon Watts, while oboists will be taught by Ben Opie.

Students at AMEB Grade 4 level and above are welcome as performers. Students below this standard are very welcome to attend as observers and for expert advice on reeds and instruments.

Topics covered in these classes will include:

  • reed making workshops
  • playing opportunities
  • learning about oboe/bassoon repertoire (both new and old)
  • discussions about oboe techniques, styles and playing
  • meet and hear other players

There will be easy access through the front door of the Music building. Room 423 is located on the top floor, and room 303 is one floor up from street level. The rooms are booked 30 minutes prior to the start of the class so you may arrive earlier to warm up.
