I admit it.

The Tuning CD changed my life. Listening to the CD would probably drive most people completely mad, but playing with it has become an essential, almost meditative part of my practice routine. I highly recommend it, and highly recommend using it in such a way (with headphones or when no one else is around) that those you care about will not resort to sabotage to save their own sanity!

Sightreading genie!

I just found this great tool for sightreading skills! Oboists, pick an example that has only one melodic line, or just play the top note throughout, then listen to the musical example and pick out the part you just played!

Also check out the rhythm gym!
