In music, the circle of fifths is the relationship among the 12 tones of the chromatic scale, their corresponding key signatures, and the associated major and minor keys.  Essentially, it holds the fundamental building blocks for music and developing relationships among its many components.


In life, we strive to be successful in our efforts to be the best that we can be.  In the OBOE circle of fifths are the fundamental building blocks for success.  In its music advocacy, OBOE expects these fundamentals of its members and expects the same from those whom it supports and from those whom it receives support.  It is OBOE's directive to make sure that students have every chance to begin their paths to success as they experience all that music has to offer.
