Student Oboe Reeds

Best Student Oboe Reeds For Early Learners- Always Made From Scratch

My Student Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and customized to promote accessibility for better learning and more fun in early music making. Attention to detail, expert hand finishing and strict quality controls make them the very best on market.  While they are the lightest reeds in my product line, they are still beefier than most other student oboe reeds on the market.  By leaving a little extra wood  in all the right places, I achieve a great result while promoting reed longevity that many customers appreciate. They are recommended for those who have more than 6 months experience, are engaged with a private teacher, and have achieved at least a modest dynamic range in their play.  Note: Magic Reed brand student oboe reeds have been reassigned to First Chair, as I draw from most of the same materials, and of course, always use my signature scrape. First Chair and Reed Monkey are differentiated by the strength of the cane, the application of a hybrid scrape. My goal is best in category for every reed I make.

Below is a demonstration of my student/intermediate oboe reed.  It reveals the potential of this reed grade by a player who would normally play on a pro model.
