I'm engaged with the process of teaching bassoon students from the beginner level up to the advanced level. I make sure to make them aware of the importance of proper cleaning and care for their bassoons. I'm a patient teacher and know that everyone learns differently and at different speeds. I like to play duets with the students to make the lessons fun. I'm knowledgeable about bassoon solo pieces and orchestral repertoire and am able to help to help students prepare for solo contests. I emphasize the development of technique through slow scales and gradually expand the range. I'm able to add a little humor in the lessons to make the lessons fun. I view myself as a student in the process of teaching, too. I'm also engaged with teaching students proper embouchure, breath support and talk to them about reeds and am able to teach them reed making and adjustment as they become more advanced. In addition to bassoon I have experience playing Bb Clarinet and am able to offer ...

My daughter learned more from Joseph than her other bassoon teachers. He was reasonable and ensured that she was learning bassoon technique, not just songs. I truly appreciated his dedication to her learning and passion for the bassoon.

Taking lessons with me will begin with a conversation about your goals for taking lessons on your instrument. Your goals, plus my five years of professional teaching experience will help me craft a plan for our lessons together. I adjust around the needs of the student. So if I detect that you learn best in a certain way but our plan doesn't exactly leave room for it, we will adjust as we go until we get it right!

He is a well trained musician with a lot of patience, which for our lessons went a long way. He is quick to help you find the right correction to technique, and will always cater to your personal needs. His lessons work well even online, as he is able to succinctly verbalize what and how something to be worked on. I highly recommend him as a teacher!
Julia!
Carl Gardner is an A1 bassoonist. Over the past year and few months he’s improved everything about my playing, technically and musically, and helped me achieve goals I previously thought were impossible. His reeds are immaculate! 5/5 stars would recommend him to any bassoonist I meet.
Amy
Social distancing will not interfere with solo competition! Carl made certain that my daughter did not miss a lesson by proactively finding a way to have one online. Although she prefers to be taught in person, this has definitely allayed her fears of not having her solo polished and ready for competition!

Online Bassoon Teacher

I'm a professional, classically trained bassoonist that plays with orchestras, chamber ensembles, and rock bands. I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years and I'm available to work with students at any age and skill level including beginners, intermediate students who want to improve their skills (or are picking up the bassoon after time away), as well as advanced students looking for audition and performance coaching. Lessons with me are always positive, supportive, and tailored to each individual's goals and needs.

My method of teaching is motivating and rewarding, and my students always succeed on their scale tests, Region and All State auditions, and college auditions. We can work on major and minor scales, beginner to advanced etudes, solo literature, audition etudes, orchestral excerpts, contemporary music and extended techniques, music theory, and more.

Time flies so quick. I was looking back at TakeLessons.com and realized that my son had his first bassoon lesson with Kristilyn on Oct 8 2017. Now he is a high school senior and planning to pursue his music education at the college – that is a testimony to Kristilyn’s contribution.

Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
Mr Yakov is very pleasant, patient and professional. He makes learning fun. One of my daughters is very shy and particular. I was concerned for her first violin. But she ended up loving the lesson and the instructor. We did some lessons online and at his studio. During the online lesson, the connection with our internet was horrible. He could hear her playing but she couldn't hear him. Yet, patiently, he got creative and taught the lesson with my daughter through chat. The environment of the studio is comfortable. You can tell he's passionate about what he does. That left me with a great impression of him. We look forward to more lessons with him for as long as we can.
Thanks Mr Yakov!!!

"Jack is a friendly, encouraging instructor---a great match for my 11-year-old daughter. He's obviously an expert bassoonist, but does a fantastic job of explaining things clearly and simply for the less-advanced student. My daughter can't wait for her next bassoon lesson with Jack!"

"I couldn't be more happy with the bassoon lessons that Jack has with my daughter. The online lessons are so convenient and a great way to work with this fantastic teacher. Jack's teaching style is extremely positive and supportive. He encourages my daughter to push out of her comfort zone and grow as a musician. The progress that she has made with him is incredible. He is very knowledgeable about music and integrates music theory, sight reading, and rhythm studies into their lessons. You can see that he loves playing and teaching the bassoon and that excitement carries over to my daughter. She never wants to put her bassoon down after their lessons! Lessons with Jack have been the best thing we've done to support her playing bassoon."

"Wonderfully motivating and terrifically skilled at teaching music, Cassandra was a blessed find for us as a bassoon teacher. Her knowledge of bassoon is extensive -and not just for playing and learning music - where to rent, how find quality supplies at a reasonable cost, on the fly simple repairs, who to go for more complex instrument maintenance,etc.... Lastly her connections in our local community allow for exposure and advancement if that is your kid’s path - or just fun and some enjoyable, confidence building performance experiences"

"Our daughter had taken in person lessons for years. When her instructor retired we really didn't know what to do. Bassoon instructors aren't very common where we live. She was very nervous about taking on line lessons but Alyssa put her at ease. It seems like she could really relate to Alyssa.
Alyssa really helped her get through many of the issues she was having with a new instrument and new high school band.
We will go back to her again for sure!"

"My son had his first lesson today and really enjoyed it. I sat and watched and thought that the instructor was very patient and you could hear it in his voice and general mannerisms. He gave my son some great tips for memorizing his fingering and gave him a homework assignment to work on until our next lesson. My son decided to transition from the trombone to bassoon before the new school year starts and these private lessons are just the head start he will need before day 1 of school."

"I was impressed after one lesson - clear, concise explanations, attention to how I learn (visual, memorization, or through physical learning) so that lessons and instructions could be tailored to my learning style. Encouraging, energetic and profesional. I couldn't be more excited to have her as a teacher and suddenly this all seems a lot less anxiety-inducing and far more enjoyable. Totally banished the bad memories of grade-school music classes, which put me off learning an instrument for many decades."

"As an adult student I’ve had multiple bassoon teachers over the years and Cassandra is by far the best! She is a skilled bassoonists and has all the technical skills, but even more importantly she makes it fun, approachable and inspires her students to love the bassoon and music in general! I’d highly recommend her for kids and adults, Beginner’s or experienced players alike who want to master the bassoon in a positive way."
