OboeForEveryone is hosting a reed making boot camp June 24th-28th in Eau Claire, WI. Perfect for beginning oboe and English horn reed makers, experienced reed makers wishing to refine their reed making skills, or anyone wanting to join in with fun people to stockpile great reeds for the summer and fall. The reed making sessions will be from June 24-28th and consist 2, 2.5 hour sessions each day (one from 10-12:30 and another from 3-5:30). In between those times Dr. Christa Garvey be available to teach 30 min oboe lessons to anyone interested (3 lessons for each student over the course of the week). If there are enough reed makers, we could have some ad-hoc duo, trio, or oboe ensemble sight-reading sessions for fun. There will be ALL levels at the reed table, from several beginners, high-school, college, and professional adults. The aim is to have a community of oboe lovers who simply want to improve their reeds and learn from each other in good company.
There will be no fees for the reed sessions, just come as you can. However, I will have quite a bit of gouged/shaped/folded cane available, and I ask that anyone using the cane makes a small donation to help cover those costs. contact: OboeForEveryone@gmail.com Hope to see you there!
