circular breathing

We found out that band camp was good for more than just annoying boy stories.

At her last lesson, Opie was going over Largo with Teacher. He was explaining that it wasn’t really written for the oboe, as there were no spots where you can breathe.

In a thoughtful tone, she pops out with “but maybe you could use circular breathing.”

He took it in stride and responded to her comment, but I have no idea what he said. I was too busy looking at her like she had sprouted another head. Circular breathing has NOT come up in any of our lessons or discussions; what I know is from reading on the internet (and I still don’t understand it).

I asked her later where she had heard about circular breathing. She said some of the boys at camp had been talking about using it.

Score another one for band camp!
