 Hey there! I'm a PG Student in Manchester looking to raise funds to purchase vital reed making equipment for my Masters Degree.

 Hey there!

I'm a postgraduate oboe student at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. As part of my course I have to make my own oboe reeds which requires a certain amount of specialist equipment.

 

 

Postgraduate students in the UK do not receive any assistance from the Student Loans company, and my parents cannot afford to support me any more than they have done already. In order to progress professionally, I need to be able to make good quality oboe and cor reeds. At the moment I use the university's equipment but once I leave I won't have access to it.

I am trying to raise funds and save some money in order to purchase a dial micrometer and a tip cutter, as well as a reserve of cane and other perishable items required for making oboe and cor anglais reeds. These vital pieces of kit will not only allow me to make the best possible reeds, but will allow me to become self sufficient as I will also be able to sell reeds to my students and other oboists.

 

If anyone would like any more details or would like to listen to my playing, please send me a message and I will gladly have a chat with you. Also, here is a link to my SoundCloud account: www.soundcloud.com/georgestrick
