Imagine feeling 100 % confident that you are using the right “set up” for your particular type of oboe. Wouldn’t knowing you have the perfect combination of oboe, staple, shape and scrape feel like wholeness and completion, both at peace and also poised for agility and expression? Read more
I interviewed Oboe Reed Master, Steve Hammer in April 2020. Watch the whole interview below. He talks about Bernoulli’s principle, his reed making philosophy, his favorite tools and what, in his opinion, the biggest reed making mistakes are that students make.
This interview takes place in preparation for the launch of THE OBOE REED MASTER SERIES starting in April 2020. It is a 10-session series which is part of The Dynamic Reed maker, a three month- long intensive reed making training program. This is fantastic new way to dive deep into the reed making questions that have always baffled you. Ask the master! This live and interactive series takes place in the JK Double Reed Making Zoom Reed Room. Each Oboe Reed Master will be joining twice with at least a week between the two sessions. This gives you a chance to digest the topic and try things out so that you can return to the second session to share your own results, ask questions and dive even deeper into the topic. Please enjoy the interview! Find out more here.
About Symphonie des Dragons
Symphonie des Dragons explores the repertoire of the great wind bands of Versailles and brings together many of the finest wind players. The exciting programs trace the civilizing influence of the oboe band on military and ceremonial music between 1680 and 1720. A full complement of oboes and bassoons—with doubling on recorders—rounded out by guitar and percussion makes this an ensemble of seldom heard color and timbre.
