Watch out for the fingerings issue! If you read the “Welcome” posts from here, you’ll immediately see some of the problems; those beginning books don’t have the correct fingerings in them!
I’d be happy to be “on call” for you at any time if you have questions. I’m often on IM (patioboe) and I’m an email addict (sad, but true fact: if I don’t answer in less than a few hours I sometimes get phone calls asking me if I’m okay!)
I have a lot of links to oboe sites at oboeinsight that might help as well.
(I’d be scared to death to take on bassoon students! Hope all goes well for you.)
