Join us for a day completely dedicated to all things double-reed!
The day will include an opening recital by our guest artists, masterclasses with top professionals for oboe and bassoon ranging from beginning to advanced players, reed-making classes, instrument repair and maintenance, and a variety of vendors for you to test instruments, buy reeds and music, and much more! We will end the day with a mass-ensemble concert with all of our participants playing together.
Requests to play in master-classes will be sorted by level and taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Open to the double reed professional, amateur, student, or enthusiast.
Come be a part of the double reed community for this very special day!
Double Reed Extravaganza!
Hosted by ADRS Victoria
Jeff Crellin (Principal Oboe MSO) and Lyndon Watts (frm. Principal Bassoon Munich Phil) will be working with the students, and there will be simultaneous sessions running all day for teachers with a real focus on the non specialist teacher.
So all those flute and clarinet teachers out there who have one oboe or bassoon student and feel they need a bit of help, come along for those expert tips!
Start planning now to bring your school along to this awesome event!
***UPDATE–The location is no longer at Blackburn High School, but will be held at the Wantirna College Music Department***
