Ana Margarida Cardoso was born in 5th August 1992, in Seia. She studies oboe since 12 years and she begins studying oboe in Banda de Seia, Banda de Gouveia and Conservatório de Música de Seia, where she finished the second grade in oboe´s class.
She completed, with very success, the music course in Escola Profissional da Serra da Estrela, playing oboe, and realized a final work named “The Oboist and the Double Reed”, that was classified with 19 values (0-20).
The author watched her work being edited because there aren´t books written in Portuguese about the theme.
Actually, she is studying Musical Sciences in Universidade Nova de Lisboa, where she wants to deepen her knowledge. She hopes that this book is the first of a large work in the Double Reeds’ investigation in Portugal.
