I used to make bad reeds but...
with a method to stick to and clear guidelines on how to organize simple reed making tasks, oboe reed stress is a thing of the past. My workshops are experiential and informative with an emphasis on efficiency in reed making and an increase in success rate.
For oboists with limited reed making experience
After attending, you can expect to be confidently tying on consistently well-‐‑constructed reeds and rough scraping to a high standard. You will have learnt details about cane, staples and shapes. You will feel comfortable with knife handling and I guarantee you will be producing airtight reed blanks. You will also cover knife maintenance.
For oboists confident with tying on reeds
Building on the Beginner workshop this deals with scraping reeds in detail, and works towards finishing off reeds for use. A more intense focus on knife technique will lead to a balanced heart and tip, and even smooth knife stokes ensure a free blowing reed.
