What Every Oboe Player Needs to Know About the Body. Oboemotions is the definitive volume on using Body Mapping technique to help oboists and other double-reed players prevent injury and develop the physical freedom and sensitivity needed for technical mastery. Part method book, picture book, anatomy book, and practice handbook, the purpose of Oboemotions is to place the musical and technical study of the oboe within the context of a precise understanding of the human body. It provides very specific details related to playing techniques used for all the instruments of the oboe family: cor anglais, oboe d'amore, musette, bass oboe, and heckelphone as well as various historical and ethnic relations. Oboemotions is both practical and fun to read, with case studies, agenda helpers, personal illustrations by the author, and Body Mapping practice sessions interspersed with detailed how-to material. Contents include chapters on: inclusive awareness, balance, fingers, thumb rests and neck straps, embouchure, air, the tongue, vibrato, reed-making and performance anxiety. Stephen Caplan is Professor of Oboe at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and serves as Principal Oboist of the Las Vegas Philharmonic. He is a certified Andover Educator after extensive private study with Barbara Conable, creator of Body Mapping.
