Gekeler Book Two
I recommend this book for older students and find that it really helps develop expression and technique. The second book in Kenneth Gekeler’s Oboe Method is broken into two sections. The first section contains many of the first 40 etudes by AMR Barret for melodic and expressive development. The second section of the book focuses on technical development. All keys are examined with scale, arpeggio, and tricky technical passages that span the entire range of the instrument. Fluency and ease of playing are the goal and this book provides plenty of challenging studies to achieve this aim.
