“The Oboe Reed Making DVD” is a 96 minute instructional DVD in English, French, German and Spanish which demonstrates the techniques for making reeds for the oboe. Learning to make oboe reeds (the replaceable mouthpiece of the oboe) is an essential part of an oboist’s professional training. This is the first DVD of its kind, as books have been the traditional source of information on this topic such as “The Oboe Reed Book” (Jay Light, 1983). Video has obvious advantages as a visual training medium including the use of recorded sound examples to demonstrate the changes in a reed’s response and characteristics during its construction. This DVD investigates and explains the techniques used in reed making and shows how each part of the reed has a particular function in sound production which can be purposefully adjusted by scraping the reed. It demonstrates the engineering tools and machines required for processing the cane used for reed making.
