  • Oboe Reed Boot Camp


    Oboe Reed Boot Camp is an intensive weekend experience that takes place in South Bend, IN, on the lovely campus of St Mary’s College.  The EXTROBOE Experience is an enhancement to Boot Camp – adding masterclasses, chamber music, and oboe crafts to fill your weekend out with oboe education and fun.   Reedmakers and oboists at all levels are WELCOME! 

    2022 Dates:
    ORBC June 25-26, 9-5
    EXTROBOE June 24 12-6, June 25 9-8, June 26 9-5

    PLEASE NOTE. This is a LIVE, IN PERSON experience. We will be taking COVID protocols and social distancing into account, but we will be indoors and this experience is group based and we will be playing oboes together.   At this time, only FULLY VACCINATED people will be allowed to enroll, and we will ask for proof of COVID vaccine.  If this won’t work for you, I invite you to look at my ONLINE reedmaking course, Zero to Reedmaker, or to consider joining us live in 2023.

    Note: Advancing and Beginning categories address your REEDMAKING skills only. You could be an Advanced player but a Beginning reedmaker, in other words.   Beginners will start with learning to wind, basic knife skills, and reed construction steps. They will move more slowly.  Advancing Reedmakers will begin by making reeds, and will evolve and improve their existing skills over the weekend as they work with me, my Guest Master Reedmaker, and each other.

    NOTE: In 2022, there is another event happening in South Bend on Saturday – a Billy Joel concert at the stadium! The concert won’t impact our time together, but might make moving around in town a little more cumbersome – and as a result, hotels are more scarce and pricey than usual. Please book early, and consider staying a little bit out of town, like in Elkhart IN, St Joseph MI, or Berrien Springs MI.
