Norddeutsche Oboentage 2015

30 aug - 4 sept 2015 | Academy of music Lower Saxony - Wolfenbüttel


The Norddeutsche Oboentage will take place for the third time from 30 August till 4 September 2015. This master class offers conservatory students and pupils the opportunity to work with renowned professors and teachers in a relaxed environment where they can further develop their skills, receive advice and motivation for their continued studies, as well as interact with other course participants.

The course does not exclusively focus on private lessons, but rather on audition training and ensemble playing. In addition to studying audition excerpts, students will participate in simulated “trial” auditions. This is a useful exercise to gain experience and to learn how to combat anxiety in an audition scenario. During the lessons it is also possible to learn how to make reeds with Marc Schäferdieck and take individual and group lessons with our mental coach, miss Petra Keßler.

We are happy to announce that the teachers will perform in a public concert this year.

During the course a number of oboe makers, wood handlers, accessories merchants, music publishers, and reed machine sellers will be exhibiting their instruments and products in Wolfenbüttel. Students will have the chance to try out, compare, and exchange ideas on various instruments and merchandise.

On the last evening there will be a short, public, farewell concert featuring solo and ensemble pieces.
