Like most woodwind instruments, the oboe presents a challenging but rewarding learning experience. Technique is very important, so a beginner method book is essential for any newcomer to this versatile, bright-sounding instrument. Not only will these comprehensive guides help you get started, they also make a great long-term reference for even an intermediate player to come back to when you'd like to brush up on your technique. Beginner method books are a good starting point for students with any level of musical knowledge. The brand-new player will learn how to read standard music notation, while experienced musicians just starting with the oboe will be able to read through the basics to figure out how to apply what they already know to the new instrument. Since the oboe is a double reed instrument, embouchure is critical—teaching that technique along with fingering will be among the first orders of business in any of these guides.

Method books with level-appropriate arrangements will help you pace yourself and fine-tune techniques at each step, and some provide exercises like chorales and scales to warm up for practice every day. For visual learners, the best method book might be one that includes a DVD with video tutorials. As well, many come with accompaniment CDs that cover for the other parts in a full band so that you can practice ensemble pieces. Some of the books are even performance-specific, with a focus on articulation, long tone, progressive brass lip slur and woodwind exercises that will reinforce these skills as you practice to improve your overall oboe technique.

It doesn't matter whether the oboe is your first instrument or your ninety-first, a beginner method book is always a smart thing to have when you pick it up. From applying old skills to teaching new ones, you'll always be doing yourself a favor by laying the groundwork with the basics before working your way to higher skill levels.
