  • Oboe Reed Boot Camp


    Oboe Reed Boot Camp is an intensive 10 hour day camp 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! 

    2020 Dates:
    Oboe Reed Boot Camp only:  August 8-9, 10-5 each day
    Make a WHOLE WEEKEND of it with additional EXTROBOE experience, beginning Friday, August 7 at 5

    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.
