Percussion has been added to the mediaeval items, and bongos to the Latin American ones. Each track can be played as a backing for the student to perform with. The music is easily obtainable, with some tutors or collections covering several tracks (full details are in the CD booklet). There are some inspiring performances and each piece is playable without the oboe part.

There are 60 tracks in all.

Here is a CD to inspire all oboe beginners, with a wealth of good, simple music - for example this ebulliant piece, attributed to Henry VIII, or this soulful Air by Purcell.

The lively Corumbá can be played after just a few lessons, and there are many jazzy pieces, for example the well-known I Got Rhythm.

There are some inspiring performances, as in this beautiful pastoral music by Michael Head.

Each piece is playable without the oboe part, and there are 60 tracks in all.
