Scales

When practicing scales, make sure you always begin slowly and work your way up to the suggested tempo. Know that it is much more important to play your scales cleanly rather than quickly. Also, pay attention to the specific articulations on the scale sheet provided. They are often different than what you do in band or what you’re private teacher might have you do.

Private Instruction

These are just suggestions to help you along your path to recording your audition. If you have a private oboe teacher that has another suggestion that works better for you please listen to them!

Good Luck! Practice. Practice. Practice.
