There are four members of the oboe family which cover the soprano, alto, tenor, and bass ranges. Each of these are notated in the treble clef. Oboes usually play melody lines and are great for playing staccato melodies.
-Double reed goes between lips and is blown
-Reeds vibrate against each other causing bursts of energy to enter the air column, which then causes the air column to vibrate
-Pitch is determined by key hole the air escapes
-The longer the air is in the tube, the slower the vibrations become resulting in a lower pitch.
