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.

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 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, improvisation, and more.

Also Available for Performance and Audition Coaching - These coaching sessions allow you ...

Kristilyn is very positive and encouraging, while guiding her pupil to be better. I was nervous about doing music lessons on line, but finding a local bassoon instructor was proving very difficult. I'm glad we found Take Lessons and Kristilyn.

It was only the first lesson but I can tell we'll be working with Simon for many many more. It was a positive experience and my son was very pleased. He looks forward to his next lesson and that's a great sign.

Bassoon is based on a simple set of rules and techniques that must be learned and applied. I'm a professional teacher with a unique ability to perceive what students understand and how they understand, which I use to efficiently build students' knowledge, saving them both time and money.

I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student.

Interested students can expect to improve all aspects of their playing: tone, artistry, articulation, technique, intonation, and even reed making. All of these will be tailored as necessary for the needs and desires of the student, be they beginners or more advanced players.
