Oboemotions: What Every Oboe Player Needs to Know about the Body

By Stephen Caplan
GIA Publications

“Oboemotions: What Every Oboe Player Needs to Know about the Body” uses Body Mapping to improve practice and performance. An accurate understanding of body, mind and movement will significantly improve one’s performance, and help avoid or overcome injury.
This book is guided by the concept that the motions of oboe playing are just as important as the emotions of playing. In fact, developing an accurate understanding of the motions involved in performance will enable one to more clearly communicate the emotional range of the music.
“Oboemotions” includes chapters on breathing, embouchure, articulation, the use of fingers and hands, as well as reed making, practicing and performance anxiety.
