Hi, I’m Jennet, and I AM the Happiest Musician!
I serve oboists by offering high quality reeds, cane, tools, and supplies for sale, by running courses and programs on reedmaking, oboe skills, and artistry, and by being active as an oboist in the world.
I encourage musicians to thrive in their creative careers with my podcast, Crushing Classical, my book, The Happiest Musician, and 1:1 business and mindset coaching.
YOUR artistry matters, and I want to see you THRIVE!
I invite you to take six weeks with me this summer to dig into this staple of our repertoire. We’ll explore these movements interactively on zoom - there will be some discussion, opportunities to play and be coached live, and some group playing (safe behind your mute button). You’ll leave with practice tips both specific and generalized, with a list of crowdsourced repertoire relevant to the skills you learned, and a deeper understanding of the greatness of this foundational work. Oh, and new oboe friends!
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your wonderful reeds! I’ve played oboe for most of my life, but I also have a family and a full time day job.
My own reeds were never that great. Now, I order your reeds, and I can spend my efforts (and practice time!) on the nuances of the music instead of just concentrating on making the notes speak!
The conductor of my community orchestra recently told me that my sound production was at a professional level and complimented my musicality on a difficult piece. And our group also won a local award for best community orchestra.
Thank you for helping me play my best!
Jennet, you are brilliant, extraordinary, kind, compassionate, considerate. The thought and care you've put into this program is fantastic and tremendously appreciated.
I mastered double tonguing 40 years ago, and despite occasional re-visiting and practice, have remained mystified at the sluggishness of my single tonguing.
In just a few sentences and suggestions, you made it possible for me, with very minimal practice, to understand the issues and to almost instantly, radically increase the speed of my single tonguing.
Mystery dispelled. I'm awed, inspired, and grateful.
