Private Bassoon Teacher

Bassoon:
A woodwind instrument in the double reed family that typically plays music written in the bass and tenor clefs, and occasionally the treble. Appearing in its modern form in the 19th century, the bassoon figures prominently in orchestral, concert band, and chamber music literature. The bassoon is a non-transposing instrument known for its distinctive tone colour, wide range, variety of character and agility. Listeners often compare its warm, dark, reedy timbre to that of a male baritone voice. Someone who plays the bassoon is called a bassoonist. The lessons will consist of breathing and finger techniques, learning notes and rhythms and how to read. Very quickly songs will be incorporated and as the student progresses we will work on learning scales and how to solo.

Karen was great!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.

Private Bassoon Teacher

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.

Online Bassoon Teacher

I am a double reed (oboe and bassoon) specialist and have played both for over 16 years. My instrument of choice was bassoon in college and I continue to play for community orchestras. I tutor the double reed students at Hughson High School and Ross Middle School during the school year. Proper bassoon embouchure, technique and selection and adjustment of reeds is something most public school teachers overlook. Trust a specialist!

I teach oboe primarily through the tried and true Rubank method and the Ferling studies. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed adjustment, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for oboe to help my students progress the fastest.

I teach bassoon primarily through the tried and true Rubank method and the Weissenborn method. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read ...

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

With 12 years of Bassoon playing experience and 6 years of teaching experience, I'm excited to expand my studio online and in person to reach an even wider range of students. I am prepared to teach at all levels from beginner to collegiate and for a wide range of lesson lengths (For any lengths not posted on TakeLessons, I am available for individual inquiries). I'm hoping to form a stable group of students which grow and learn over years of continued dedication to bassoon and music in general.
I am an experienced teacher and performer with two musical degrees, a Master's degree in Bassoon Performance from Arizona State University and a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from University of New Hampshire. My travels around the US and abroad have taught me many interesting things about bassoon playing in different climates and at extreme altitudes which have informed my playing tremendously! As an added bonus, I am an experience reed-maker and can assist in person and remotely ...

"Kristilyn is a great instructor. She has helped my daughter get back to playing bassoon for high school band after a one year hiatus, and she is doing great! The one on one instruction and ability to do the lessons from home make things super flexible for our busy family. I wasn't sure at first how the online lessons would work, or if it would be as effective as meeting with someone in person, but the lessons have definitely exceeded my expectations!"

"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."

"Kristilyn is a great teacher. I have only been playing bassoon for four months and she has taught me several things that have helped me to play better. Even though I have had only one lesson from her I know by her instructions I will improve. I plan on continuing lessons with her and recommend her to anyone needing bassoon lessons."
