Oboe reed making.
Since 2016 Adam Shapiro has been visiting us from Seattle USA twice a year to teach oboe reed making. Each course sells out and participants go away knowing a lot more about what makes a reed work and how to make and adjust reeds. Adam is just as happy working with baroque reeds as he is with modern orchestral ones. The comment from a Swedish participant after the 2018 course is typical of this an other courses we run. “That was one of the most enjoyable weeks of my life, I have been playing and adjusting reeds for over 40 years and I have learnt so much, I am so happy, I will be coming back again”
