Galina has been working with our 8th grade son on bassoon for a year and he loves it! She is a kind, generous, and knowledgeable teacher. She has patiently prepared him for auditions, improving his technique and musicality, but she also makes lessons fun by playing duets with him. She is also teaching him to make reeds. And she is very easy to work with in scheduling, and has seamlessly moved to remote lessons in the current situation. We are lucky to have found her as a teacher.

Private Bassoon Teacher

I've been teaching the bassoon for over ten years, and I love it. It is my main instrument as a performer, and in the last few years I've specialized in helping students switch to the bassoon from other instruments. Whether you've never seen a bassoon or you're preparing for a professional audition, I can help you with the intricacies of this wonderful instrument.

About Cory

I am a classically trained bassoonist with a Master's degree from London's Royal College of Music. I love finding each student's own learning style to tailor the experience, and I encourage my students to make their own decisions about musical expression (with plenty of guidance, of course!). I

Online Bassoon Teacher

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.

Experienced bassoon teacher of 10 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical skills (listening, critical thinking, problem solving, perseverance, etc) and joy in music. Materials used include standard method books, ABRSM solos, as well as pop and movie tunes according to interests of students.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Cassandra for 7 years. She is knowledgeable, kind, caring, and compassionate. She dedicates herself to her students and goes above and beyond to create educational experiences both in and outside the classroom. Her prices are very reasonable and she devotes extra time and energy to ensure all the tools needed for success with a double reed instrument are in place. She works well with beginning elementary students all the way through to college students auditioning for elite music studios. She is well connected in the bassoon community. It would be impossible to find a better instructor. My daughter will miss her when she is away in college.
Brenna
I switched from trombone to bassoon in my sophomore year of high school and took lessons with Cassandra for my junior and senior years. In that time, I learned faster and better than with any music instructor I've had in my life. Part of it was the necessity of learning how to play at a high school level incredibly rapidly, but most of it was due to Cassandra making it easy and fun to learn and practice. She was amazing at identifying bad habits or roadblocks before they became huge issues that were hard to address and coming up with solutions to help me get past them. And more than anything, she made me confident enough in my skill to truly enjoy practicing and playing again.
JC
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

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.

About Kristilyn

I am a classically trained bassoonist with a passion for all types of music. I received my Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA) in bassoon performance from the Ohio State University, and my Masters of Music in bassoon performance from Arizona State University. In addition to holding faculty positions

"As someone that has rehearsed and worked on chamber music with Antonio, I have to say that his pedagogy extends much further than bassoon. His background in rehearsal techniques and broad musical knowledge have been indispensable during our rehearsals, and he has often pointed out ways in which I can fine tune the expressionistic or technical aspects of my playing. Awesome teacher!"

So excited she wanted to continue playing and practicing even after the session. Thank you, Jack! She wanted me to let you know she is looking forward to many more days like this!😁👍"

"Am a beginner with musical background on other instruments. Have only had one lesson so far, but it was great. Kristilyn communicates concepts simply and clearly and puts you at ease. A true educator, she understand where you are having problems and knows how to help you fix them. She not only explains the 'how,' but also the 'why,' and teaches with comparisons to common every day actions to illustrate concepts as they relate to playing the bassoon. She answered questions before my lesson, which greatly aided me as I was deciding which brand and model bassoon to buy. I feel lucky to have found such a person to take on a bassoon beginner. Can hardly wait to advance to be able to mine the knowledge and experience of this resource in more depth."
