Studies are an established part of every instrumentalist's training. They place technical problems in musical contexts, and can be invaluable aids to development. 80 Graded Studies for Oboe is a must-have resource for all students and teachers, and the two books feature heavily on the major examination board syllabuses. 80 Graded Studies for Oboe brings together in two books a broad selection of 18th and 19th century repertory, with studies by Blatt, Brod, Ferling, Fetzen, Garnier, Hinke, Luft and others. Also included are a number of specially composed studies by Paul Harris. The studies in Book 1 are arranged in increasing difficulty, according to a carefully planned technical progression (Grades 1-5).
