While I am primarily a low brass player, I've learned to play a lot of other instruments including oboe. I just finished my seventh season as principal oboe in our area orchestra and have played oboe in several bands and orchestras in the 25 years since I started on it. There almost always seems to be a demand for oboe players so there are usually plenty of opportunities to play.
Oboe can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a challenge. Like any instrument, it has its good points and its bad points, its advantages and disadvantages. No instrument is for everybody. Best of luck to your DD! I hope she continues to like the oboe and is successful with it.
