Having taught Public School Instrumental Music for 34 years, grades 6 thru
12, I have found the "Oboe" as being the hardest to learn - (as-well-as
teach) - and the "Saxophone" the easiest.
Every person should have some God given talent to be able to learn any
instrument.  I have even had students that could not distinguish one pitch
from another.  During these many years, I would not start a beginner on
"Oboe" unless they were practically straight "A" students, and these usually
excelled in their musical training.   (Just wanted to add my 2 cents.)
