Do you want to learn to play baroque oboe but dont know how to begin?
Are you teacher and dont know what pieces to recommend when you teach baroque oboe because any score, no matter how easy, has difficulties to
solve for someone who is beginning to play? The Method for Baroque Oboe is a manual designed for amateurs, self-taught musicians or professionals
who teach baroque oboe.
It is a progressive learning method, which starts from scratch, with exercises designed to learn to play baroque oboe without leaving any
loose ends and that uses pieces from both treatises and compilations of music written in the s. XVIII.
The treatises of that period are useful if you already know how to play the baroque oboe, because they provide information about style,
articulations, etc. but until now there was no one who taught to play from the very beginning.
Through exercises and selected original pieces (some adapted so that they can be played without knowing 'al the notes') the oboist will
play all possible fingerings, several ornamental combinations and will work on the main forms from the Suite.
