NMC Learning at Home: Saxophonist Tries the Oboe

Is there anything Evan the Educator isn’t willing to play? The answer is no. In this episode, he dips his toes into a category of instruments that he’s never tried until now: double reeds. Learn the difference between single and double reeds and why it’s challenging for a single reed player to transition to a double reed. Watch a saxophonist (single reed) take on the oboe (double reed) and see how he does. Maybe you’ll be inspired to pick up a new instrument yourself?
