Double Reed Day at Hoff-Barthelson including an oboe and bassoon reed making workshop and double-reed band jam session with HBMS faculty member, Elizabeth Condon, oboe, and special guest artist, Paulo Siqueira, bassoon.
Learn how to: troubleshoot reed problems; make common adjustments to improve a reed; produce a “crow” to diagnose playability; test for leaks and repair them; learn about tools and materials used to make your own reeds; and finish a reed “blank.”
