Private 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.

Josh is a fantastic clarinet instructor. He’s enthusiastic, patient, and finds the right balance of fun and challenging exercises. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well the online lessons have gone.
Heather M.
If you've ever had to tell a coworker how to do something on a computer that you do 100 times a day without thinking, you know how hard it is to verbalize the things you do with muscle memory. Joshua is a whiz at finding exactly the right way to explain how to adjust my mechanics to make progress on my instrument. I played flute in HS over 30 years ago and was a little nervous about starting over at my age but Joshua is completely supportive and positive and fun. I also happen to be a science teacher and I've loved being a student again because it's helping me relate to my students and to think about feedback - so it's like my flute lessons are coming with bonus lessons on how to teach. I've learned a lot from Joshua in just a couple of months.

The bassoon is an amazing instrument! The nickname for the bassoon is the "clown of the orchestra". I am so excited to teach you more about the bassoon! I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the bassoon including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, half-hole technique, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

"My son has been taking lessons from Kristilyn for about 6 months now and she has been amazing. My 16 year old is always over scheduled and Kristilyn has been more than willing to work around his schedule when the need has arisen. She has also helped him choose appropriate music for several auditions and practice for the auditions. She has stretched his limits on the bassoon with out frustrating him. We highly recommend Kristilyn as an instructor."
