When I switched to oboe from the flute a few years back I was really excited.I like playing the flute but It just wasnt that much fun.I feel bad when i go through expensive band camps just to switch the instrument but im glad I did now it wont be money wasted.When the local orchestra came to my school and I saw and learned about the oboe I knew I wanted to play it.Be warned though.Switching to reed can be a little difficult especially because the oboe is a double reed instrument.It takes practice but I think it was worth switching.It is generally more challenging to learn than other instruments but if you really really want to play it,that fact shouldnt bother you.

I also switched from flute to oboe (actually from singing to flute and then to the oboe), but I still play flute sometimes. Plying the oboe is amazing but it is absolute necessary to have an oboe-teacher the first years, I guess that it is more important with a teacher for the oboe than for any other instrument.
