I haven't learnt how to make my own reeds yet, but can't you get one of Heinz's albums of Amazon and get it shipped? Try searching.

I agree, this is quite tedious. I have made a myspace account and it the email is "oboedude888@hotmail.co.uk". Lol it says I'm 100 years old I'm not. If you have any questions concerning England feel free to ask.

Tone really comes with playing I suppose. One of the things I find useful is always keep your mouth in an O shape. "ooooo" all the time! Keep the oboe up and support by expanding your diaphram so your back and stomach come our. Keep your throat open as if you're yawning although I expect you have to do some of this anyway for flute.

Also, if you haven't already I'd recommend getting nice reeds as these also affect tone. You could ask that proffesional who you said teaches you a bit. In England I order my reeds from an online shop and at the moment they are working fine.

I disagree with your English sucking but if you have any questions regarding grammar feel free to ask me (to be honest I've seen much worse grammar from other English and Americans on the forums). It's cool that you're playing the oboe and I hope you encourage more Malay people to take it up. What you said about Malaysia being multi-racial is interesting, as England is also a multi-racial country. You could come to England to study music, but the weather is probably nowhere near as nice as in Malaysia.

It's great you have a good private teacher, I think oboe especially needs to be taught by a teacher as there are bad habits you can teaching it to yourself. Did you like playing flute - did you give it up for oboe. I really like both flute and oboe, but I can't even get a sound of the flute (which is quite ironic). What level did you get to in flute? What level would you say you're at at the moment with oboe? Just wondering.

Hi, no I don't play with an orchestra at the moment. I have a busy schedule unfortunately so I don't get the opportunity. However, I play in a big band with two other oboists. How are you finding the oboe?

In England the music teaching is very good. In our area there is a music scheme run by a kind of board, and there are lots of teachers for every instrument. Lessons are taught in schools and I am fortunately taught in the school I attend. It's good because everyone gets the chance to be taught by a good teacher. Also in England we have a grading system when we get formally assessed by an examiner, which I admit is quite nerve racking. There are 8 grades and I have passed grades 1,2,3,4. (I'm also doing grade 5 piano in a few days and am quite nervous). I really like our music system. Do you have anything like this in Malaysia?

Also, your English is very good. Do you get taught English in school. I certainly couldn't speak Malay as fluently as you!
