Oboe Art and Method is a complete and comprehensive guide to oboe technique. Author Martin Schuring, a veteran oboe performer and instructor, describes in detail all of the basic techniques of playing (breathing, embouchure, finger technique, articulation) and reed making, with expert tips and step-by-step instructions for how best to perform each of these tasks with grace and technical efficiency. Schuring's descriptions are straightforward and articulate, designed to encourage students to focus on the basic techniques of tone production as a springboard for more nuanced artistic development. Key sections address long-tone and scale practice in ways that go beyond advice most teachers will give their pupils, and the author's focus on embouchure development cultivates supported breathing and blowing to help provide the best foundation for aspiring oboists. In addition, he offers chapters on the practicing, instrument care and adjustment, professional development, and career development issues, all designed to help students practice meaningfully and with purpose and guide them throughout their careers with the oboe. A reliable source of practical and time-tested advice, Oboe Art and Technique will appeal to all who teach or are learning to play the oboe, whether at conservatories or in private instruction. A coherent overview of the fundamentals of technique, it will also be a terrific brush-up guide for professionals and amateur enthusiasts alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Professor Schuring's book is an extremely comprehensive, thoughtful and articulate exploration into the many complexities of the art (and craft!) of oboe playing and reed-making. It provides pages of valuable information, presented in a clear, concise, and easy to understand manner. Congratulations to Martin Schuring for compiling his wealth of knowledge into this thorough and informative compendium for future generations of oboists! * Nancy Ambrose King, Professor of Oboe, University of Michigan, President, International Double Reed Society *
This wonderful book is a natural continuation of Martin Schuring's effective work in the studio. It has very wise and thoughtful helpful hints, presented in a straight-from-the-shoulder style, which can't help but be useful to support the in-person advice most teachers will give their pupils. I have begun quoting from it to my students already! Oboe Art and Method will soon become absolutely indispensable to today's serious oboist - teacher and student alike. * Dan Stolper, Instructor of Oboe, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Visiting Faculty, Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University *
This is probably the most important book on the practical craft of oboe playing that has been written in the English language in the past 50 years. * Double Reed News *
