Ross

I believe the answer is:

oboist

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'member of the orchestra' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both people as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps there's a link between them I don't understand?

'a bit too boisterous?' is the wordplay.
'a bit' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue (the answer is formed by a bit of the clue).
'OBOIST' can be found hidden inside 'too boisterous'.

'who's' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for oboist that I've seen before include "Wind player" , "Do I boost the musician?" , "Instrumentalist" , "Player of woodwind instrument of treble pitch" , "Musician who plays woodwind of treble pitch" .)
