After three crazy weeks of cane shavings galore, the inaugural summer of Ducks in a Row: Reedmaking Camp has come to a close!
I really enjoyed seeing young oboists come together in a supportive environment as they learned one of the most challenging/frustrating/rewarding oboe skills: making reeds. I am incredibly impressed with how fast everyone picked up scraping and how supportive they were of each other.
I hope that all of the students involved had a great time and learned a lot about reeds. I am happy to report that every student ended camp with at least one reed that plays...that they made themselves! ..and all parties involved walked away with all 10 fingers! :0)
Thank you to everyone (teachers and students) for all of your support of Ducks in a Row! I look forward to expanding camp and involving even more students next year.
