No, the oboe is not the lowest woodwind instrument, but it is the contra bassoon/bassoon
In the standard orchestral family, it is a bassoon.
Cor anglais, or the English horn, is a double-reed instrument. It's a larger version of the oboe.
They are both double-reed instruments. The oboe is like the soprano of this subcategory and bassoon is like the tenor or baritone-bass.
I play the oboe and to me it sounds like a snake charmer's insturment. but to others it sounds like a dying bird.
It depends on the make and brand of the oboe. It can also depend on the reed you use and the wood it is made out of. However, it generally sounds like ,some people say, a duck, but it can also be sweet or mysterious. It is the instrument that tunes the whole band.
The oboe can be mellow in some music pieces such as romantic music
hm... very hard todescribe In Peter and the Wolf (by Sergei Prokofiev) The oboe represents a duck. The oboe is also used for many sad or romantic songs, like in the song across the stars for Star Wars Episode two: Attack of the Clonesby the composer John Williams.
Marcello Cuttitta was born on September 2, 1966.
It has 3 parts that make up its body, and the reed
You lick it then play with it. There is no quicker way.
Well you shoudnt really just lick it. Soak it in water for about 2 minutes and play on it for about 10 minutes. Do that for about 4-7 days.
In top-tier orchestras you usually 4 oboists, though typically one of them is officially the English Horn player.
A typical band or orchestra has two to three oboes.
It's usually the number of oboes required by a composer in any given piece. A Haydn symphony may require two oboes (or in some of his symphonies: NONE) while a tone-poem by Richard Strauss may require triple WW or more.
i am not sure weather it will sound the same but for piano it is
f-f-f-f-e-f-g-c (the c is the one to the left same for the first c in the next line)
f-g-c-c-Bb-a-g(the second c is the one to the right)
sorry if this didnt help but if it does please right bk
p.s if anyone wantts more songs like this please right or do the improve answer thing right now i am learning Bella's lullaby the part i got so far goes
Bb-a-g-e-d-g-b-a b-c g-a Bb-a-g-e-d-g-b-a b-c Gg-g Eb-e g-a
if you can not understrand this its okay i normally do the notes on top off the notes but these don't have none
i havent got a page or site or anything i just post when i bored to help people out cause i could use some 2 but just reply underthis n ill bhelp
The oboe is almost always black. But wood oboes are made from Grenadilla or Rosewood have a slightly reddish hue in certain light. The keys are nickel plated, and are thus silver.
An oboe reed can get moldy over time if it isn't properly cleaned after being used. It's a good idea to wipe it off after using it, perhaps blowing on it a couple of times after taking it out of the oboe to get any excess water out of it. Letting it sit out for awhile to dry before you put it back in its case helps prevent mold from growing, too.
The oboe was and is made out of wood. All woodwind instruments are constructed out of a wood body with metal keys. The flute and piccolo are the only woodwind instruments that do not use wooden reeds as a mouthpiece.
Clarinets and saxophones (a hybrid of brass and woodwind) use single reeds held onto the mouth joint by a ligature, a small metal clamp.
Oboes, English horns, and bassoons use a double reed, composed out of two thin reeds of bamboo held together by twine and cork, that are inserted either directly into the upper joint (oboe and horn) or attached to a bocal - a curved piece of hollow metal - and then to the bassoon.
Unlike its woodwind companions, the flute and piccolo are hollow tubes with an opening across the upper surface. Air is not blown directly into the hole, either, as with those listed above, but across it, producing a sound.
Most woodwind instruments are made of wood or plastic now, except for flute, piccolos, and saxophones. They are more often made out of metal, such as brass, nickle, or silver. Marching instruments are rarely made of wood, because of the harsh weather conditions that the instruments may be subjected to. All woodwind instruments also have corks and pads on the underside of every key, held in place by springs. This ensures that you have a solid air flow through the instrument to produce the best sound possible.
This is an oboe. The wonders of google.
Both the oboe and the French horn are both particularly difficult instruments. The fact that an oboist has to make his own reeds doesn't make it harder, but unless he's a good reed maker, he'll be unreliable. Oboe playing depends so much on the quality of the reed that you have to be very good at making them. I can't tell you much about the French horn but I think it's quite hard to place the right note before playing it, the oboe doesn't have this problem.
Well the oboe is very light. I'm not exactly sure, but you never seem to get tired of holding it because of its light weight.
No, the bassoon's fingerings are not the same as the fingering of oboes.
There was a time, back when oboes were first invented and bassoons were just changing over from the single-piece dulcian to the four-piece basson/bassoon that the fingering of the two instruments was quite similar, and had much in common with the recorder and flute as well.
With the split between the German and french schools of double reed instruments, though, it's hard to say that all bassoon fingerings are alike, or that all oboe fingerings are alike!
The major difference in fingering between all oboes and all bassoons comes from the fact that the bassoon's bore is folded. This means that two lengths of the bore, the part that makes high notes and the part that makes low notes, run parallel to each other. As a result, keys that affect low notes appear near keys which affect high notes, and fingers serve multiple duties.
Because of the size of the bassoon, it is generally supported from the lower end by a belt-like strap which the player sits upon. The oboe, though, is smaller, and is generally supported by the right thumb of the player. The immobilized thumb of the oboist and the free right thumb of the bassoonist lead to further differences between the instruments. The oboist has multiple keys which are operated by the little fingers and a key and a hole with a ring (the ring acts like another key) under the left thumb. The bassoonist, though, has two keys under the left little finger, as many as four under the right little finger, between 3 and 5 under the right thumb, and anywhere between 8 and 12 keys to operate with the left thumb!
If you were to consider the basic octave, though, there is a strong similarity between all of these instruments: the three fingers of the left hand (minus the little finger), the four of the right hand, and the left thumb are employed in playing the basic octave and most of the next octave. However, in all varieties of oboe and bassoon, accidental keys, whisper/voice keys (which help to sound upper octaves) and lower-range extension keys differ greatly.
I play the oboe and tried the bassoon for a few weeks. I found that the fingerings are the more or less the same but at a fifth difference, so an F on the oboe is a Bb on the bassoon.
the modern oboe was invented in the 1650's.
they are both Bb instruments, but they range of notes isnt.
Sorry, but that (original) answer above is half-false. The oboe most definitely is NOT a Bb (transposing) instrument. The Oboe is a CONCERT-PITCH instrument. The Clarinet may be pitched in a variety of keys; Bb today is the most prevalent, but the A Clarinet is (or should be) in the collection of every professional orchestral clarinetist. The Oboe's range extends down to the Bb (one whole step) below Middle C; the Bb Clarinet's lowest written note is the "E" below Middle C; because it is a Bb transposing instrument, that "E" actually sounds one whole step lower - "D".
The oboe's larger, deeper cousin - the English horn - is a transposing instrument: in F. Its written note will sound a perfect fifth lower than written.
No. There is not a viola.
Alto flute Tranverse flute. ...

To name just a few
Play the violin, I do. Flute is just blowing and pressing. In violin there's all sorts of techniques. Arco, pizzacato, things like that. You'll love violin.
