Billerbeck Oboe Reeds

Remote Online Tuition

Marjorie Downward is happy to teach remotely via FaceTime or Zoom.
With many years of experience as a freelance soloist, chamber music and orchestral player, Marjorie is a successful teacher too having worked at all levels from beginners to diploma standard.


Marjorie offers a clear explanation of the anatomical set up required for playing the oboe and cor anglais.
For all instrumentalists, the importance of good foundations are essential. Marjorie will talk through and demonstrate the value of good posture, diaphragmatic breathing, exhalation and inhalation, sound, tone & dynamics, the embouchure in relation to the reed, the tongue and articulation in relation to the reed, plus an understanding of reeds.
