One of my oboe students performed a solo for a judge today. The solo was all about making creative decisions and taking liberties with the sheet music. Slow down in places, speed up in others. Don’t follow a straight steady beat.

The judge gave my student criticism for ignoring steady beat and taking liberties with the sheet music. Idk what to say other than I’m very proud of my student.


@alawmandese Heh. I'm just finishing editing for my podcast interview with a clarinetist auditioning for orchestras. He'd probably appreciate this Toot.
