Inspiring the young with music

Suitable age group: 8 years of age and above

The oboe produces a distinctively clear and beautiful sound when played well and is usually tasked with playing the melodies. The oboe is quite versatile in music genres as it can be found in classical, chamber, film music, and sometimes in folk, rock and pop music. If you are looking for a challenging instrument, look no further! This instrument is considered a difficult instrument for beginners to learn because of its double reed, which requires a double embouchure that requires some practicing to get used to. Learning to play the oboe has many numerous benefits including cultivating patience and discipline, developing self-confidence, strengthening of the core muscles, and relieving stress.

Playing the oboe requires coordination of hands, mouth, and breathing when playing. It not only develops coordination and finger dexterity, but it also promotes brain plasticity and cognitive development. Skill transference from learning the oboe can assist children in many different aspects of life. Research has proven that learning a musical instrument improves musical performance as well as academic test scores. Individuals will also learn how to read music during this course, developing their hand eye coordination.
