My 9 years old daughter started to learn oboe with Jane late last year, and she has been using Jane’s book 'Why Not Learn The Oboe!' for the past few months. She started with this book and learning online and she is now able to play so much better than she could before. The book is very detailed and thorough, and with Jane’s help and excellent teaching, Olivia was able to go through the lessons in the book very quickly and has improved a lot since she started. Jane is such a wonderful teacher, and my daughter has enjoyed learning and playing oboe. I am confident that my daughter will improve further with Jane's help.

Rigoutat J: "This instrument is superb. Like a dark even version of the one I played from1975 to 1979."

"The KGe Lan Mei felt easy to play but it still had a rich sound. It had the key work of a professional model oboe and was a good transition for me".

"I'm very excited to hear Eric on his new Oboe (KGe Lan Mei)...He sounds so much better than on the beginner oboe! What a transformation! I had a blow too and what a lovely little instrument."

" I'm thrilled to have found his lovely new Loree Cor Anglais so quickly, that is both so even, yet flexible. It isn't a huge adjustment from my last instrument, but the richness was just what I was looking for, not to mention a very fine Etoile crook to accompany it.
The team at Oboe Obsession were extremely helpful allowing me to try the Cor Anglais out in order to finalise my decision, and at a very reasonable price as well.I am extremely grateful to them that it all worked out. I Can't wait to perform on it in Prokofiev's Cindarella in a few weeks time."
