The Aria Double Reeds Advantage

What sets us apart from other music stores and instrument dealers is that we know double reeds!  They're all we do!  Our staff has a wealth of knowledge and years of professional performing experience to know the ins and outs of the bassoon and oboe.  Each instrument we receive is carefully selected and tested in house so that we can be sure the instrument you get from us will meet or beat your optimal performance standards.  

Our Mission

Aria Double Reeds strives to be your resource for the finest bassoons and oboes.  As an authorized dealer for Fox Products, Aria Double Reeds is able to provide all models of bassoons and oboes.  Our instruments are hand-selected and play-tested by our colleagues and friends at the Fox factory, and then sent to us to be further assessed and critiqued to ensure that every detail meets our exacting standards.  


Aria Double Reeds is a family owned business that understands the importance of a quality instrument, especially when your livelihood depends on it. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a budding student, we are here to assist you on your path towards musical excellence.

About Ari and Julia

Ari and Julia Allal met their freshman year at the University of Maryland while performing chamber music together. They bonded quickly over their love of music and double reeds.  After finishing their degrees in music performance, they both went on to receive their Masters in Music at the University of Michigan where they also performed in many of the local orchestras outside of Ann Arbor and Detroit. Once they had completed their degrees, Ari and Julia returned to the Washington, D.C. area where they can be heard performing with various ensembles and at venues such as the Kennedy Center and Strathmore.  They each have a studio of private students who perform in the local youth orchestras and receive top ratings at solo and ensemble festivals.  In addition, Ari is a music teacher at Winston Churchill High School and Julia is the Membership and Group Services Manager at Strathmore.  In March of 2013 Ari and Julia welcomed their son, Elie, to their family, and in February of 2017 they welcomed their daughter Talia, making their family complete.  They look forward to whatever musical endeavors they may pursue.
