First Book of Oboe Solos
'First book of Oboe Solos' has been compiled with the true beginner in mind. This collection introduces players to an unusually wide range of music. All 26 pieces have been chosen to encourage attention to the basic technical aspects of oboe-playing, and are organised in approximate order of increasing technical difficulty. The book helps young students to take account of both technical and musical considerations from the very beginning.
