20 Character Pieces

For solo oboe
Composer: Broadbent
, Rachel

Written by an oboist for oboists! These 20 Character Pieces were written to help students develop their musicality. Each piece has a sentence about it to inspire a student to create a story that can be expressed through the piece. Every piece of music we play tells a story and it is a skill that can get forgotten when we are working on developing oboe technique. This book creates a talking point about each piece and the sentence helps guide students into understanding how they can portray different emotions and tell different stories all while developing their oboe technique.
