Oboe is a bit more challenging instrument.  If you are thinking about starting oboe, we should discuss the details.  For the student who is motivated, it is exciting and rewarding.

Oboes are expensive instruments that require some maintenence. Some makes of oboes are markedly better than oboes made by companies that do not specialize in double reed instruments.  There are several on-line oboe dealers that will send an oboe on a trial basis for you (and your teacher) to try out.  I would be happy to try an oboe and even take it to colleagues of mine to try.  You may be able to find a good used oboe in the area from an oboist or music store.
