How It’s Made. Videos for all the woodwinds.

 

While browsing youtube the other day, I came across a video of saxophones being made at the Keilwerth factory. I am a geek of the highest order when it comes to this kind of stuff and could watch it for hours. This, of course, meant that I looked up other videos and I want to share some of those with you today. I was looking for videos for all of the woodwinds, but couldn’t find any oboe or bassoon videos. If you know of any, please feel free to post them in the comments and I’ll add it to this post.

Brannen Bros. Flutes

Buffet Clarinets

Selmer Saxophones

Fox Bassoons – Thanks to Bret Pimentel for this one!

This is the first video of 7. You can find all of the videos here.

Bonus video! Reeds

 

Video: Robert Dick on Breathing

Here’s a video of one of the great flute players/teachers, Robert Dick. Some of the information is flute specific, but the mechanics of breathing that Dick describes can apply to everyone. I found the part about opening the ribcage intriguing and I want to spend some time with that.
