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.

Great lesson, Thomas took the time to take a song I wanted to learn to play and create notes so I may play them.

Kristilyn W.

Tempe, AZ

I'm a professional, classically trained bassoonist that plays with orchestras, chamber ensembles, and rock bands. I've been teaching private lessons for 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, improvisation, and more.

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.

Kristilyn was my first bassoon instructor and has continued to be my favorite! She took me from being a mediocre, subpar high school bassoon player to a proficient bassoon player in under a year! She helped me audition and qualify for my high school regional honor band, as well as making me want to continue playing bassoon in college. I owe much of my improvement and love of the bassoon to Kristilyn. :)

I have been playing Bassoon for 10 years, and teaching for 5. As a recent graduate of the Eastman School of Music, and a current student of New England Conservatory, I feel comfortable teaching students of all skills levels. A beginner can expect to explore bassoon technique, basic reed adjustment, and tone production. I work with more advanced students on expanding their technical capacity, helping to beautify their sound, and to become self-reliant when it comes to their reeds.
