Hey! I'm pretty new to playing, I started in sixth grade, going into eighth now. Oboes are school-owned instruments (so we don't have to rent them), but I'm the only oboist who wasn't issued one for the summer, and there isn't going to be anyone at the school until early August. I'm going to be horrible when school comes around, I'm already forgetting some things. Is it hard to play well again after not picking up one for two months, or is it kind of like riding a bike (..yeah, bad analogy, there), one of those things you don't forget?
Anyways, it's nice to meet all of you. Oboe power! :D
