SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- A workshop for making reeds for the bassoon and oboe is being offered Saturday, Jan. 9 at Hoff-Barthelson Music School in Scarsdale.
Faculty members Elizabeth Condon (oboe) and Janet Grice (bassoon) will teach beginners to advanced students how to make and adjust reeds and learn more about the idiosyncrasies of the two instruments.
The free workshop will cover how to construct, scrape and shape reeds to suit your needs.
Reed tools are not required but a list can be provided for those who wish to use their own tools by contacting Grice at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Participants should bring their instruments as the last 45 minutes of the workshop will be spent playing together in a double-reed ensemble.
The workshop is from 3-5 p.m. at the school, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale.
