Oboe lessons are available in Denver at the Broadway Music School and now also in Lafayette at the Rocky Mountain Center for Musical Arts! You can schedule weekly lessons by contacting these Colorado community music schools directly.

Here are a couple of performances that make me want to get back in the practice room and try those excerpts a few more times:

Chris Bliss on YouTube

Anthony Gatto on YouTube

The first is inspiring because I love the artistry and timing of it. Simple. Beautiful.

The second is inspiring because it shows a legend educating, performing, having fun. Love it.

Freeware Metronomes

I just realized last week that freeware metronomes are available online! I still think it is good to have one that you can carry with you, but I downloaded this one in order to have access to the "tap feature" which I use to find out the tempo of a particular recording. I chose it because it was the first one I found that was Mac compatible. There are even more options for PC users.
