I teach beginner bassoon. I can help students learn to read music, play with good tone and technique, learn fingerings, and play from a book or school band music.

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

I can help beginning students on bassoon learn the basics.

About Thomas
Thomas J. W. is an active music teacher, composer, adjudicator, and clinician in the greater Philadelphia area. He has over fifteen years experience as a concert band director, marching band director, jazz improvisation instructor, choral director, private instructor, and marching drill writer. His directing career has included small rural band programs, small metro programs, large high-achieving suburban programs, and non-profit youth bands. In addition to his band compositions, he also has over forty unpublished vocal arrangements to his credit, most written for use with collegiate men's a cappella groups. Thomas taught over 600 online and local private music lessons in 2016.

Thomas has a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from The Pennsylvania State University. He holds a teaching certificate in the states of Pennsylvania
and New Jersey and has taught at the secondary level in both states. In addition to both instrumental and choral ensembles at Penn State, Thomas was a student leader in the Penn State Blue Band and a member of the brass section of the Cadets of Bergen County Drum and Bugle Corps in 1993 and 1994. He served as an Associate Director of the Warren Junior Military Band of Youngstown, Ohio from 1995 to 2005. He also served as a visual staff member for the renowned North Penn Marching Knights of Lansdale, PA for one season in 2004.

He is a current adjudicator with Drum Corps International and Cavalcade of Bands. He is a member of MENC, PMEA, NJMEA, ASCAP, CASA, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and the National Band Association. He appeared in the Marquis Who's Who Among American Educators in 2004 and 2005, an honor rarely bestowed upon teachers, as students who appear in the Who's Who Among American High School Students must nominate them. He currently is a music teacher at the Center for Performing and Fine Arts of the PA Leadership Charter School in West Chester, PA and resides in Downingtown, PA with his wife and two sons.

Thomas will happily work with students on the autism spectrum or students with ADD.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of each student. If a student is involved in school music ensembles, we will work with their lesson books from school in addition to material outside of the books, including SmartMusic, Noteflight, and teacher-created materials. We will focus on building proper tone production and individual technique - something that often is difficult to learn in a large ensemble setting.

I am capable of starting a beginner student on any band instrument including percussion, any classical string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass), and piano. I can begin a student on drum set and work with them through their first method book, but I would then recommend they find a specialized drum set teacher after a period of six to twelve months.

For advanced students, I work from selected conservatory etude books on developing advanced skills and can work with students on audition pieces for honors bands/orchestras or college auditions.

My lessons are a half-hour once a week, with the option of working for 45 minutes or 60 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
music, band, orchestra, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, violin, viola, cello, string bass, piano, Percussion
classical, jazz improvisation

Lesson content depends on the individual student, as I structure our time together depending on individual needs. Lessons can be relaxed or fast-paced, depending on what you desire to get from them.
All lessons include some combination of warm-up, scales and basic exercises, and solo literature appropriate to level. For more advanced students, we will discuss basic theory and ear training.

About Alyssa
Hi there!

I am a supportive and encouraging teacher willing to teach all ages and abilities. It is my firm belief that music is for everyone.

I am currently pursuing my M.M. from Longy School of Music. I completed my undergraduate work at Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon privately. I am currently on the private lesson roster for two public schools in the area, and teach both double-reeded instruments. I have successfully helped young students prepare for and audition into district level ensembles.

I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about playing oboe & bassoon.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

About Sean
My name is Sean, and I have been playing bassoon since I was 12 years old. Since April of 2018 I have been the Co-Principal Bassoonist in the United States Coast Guard Band and Bassoonist in the Woodwind Quintet. Originally from Northern Virginia, I attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA where I completed my Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Bassoon Performance. In December of 2013, I joined the New World Symphony in Miami Beach, FL where I performed with musicians such as Michael Tilson Thomas, Joshua Bell, Renee Fleming, and Emanuel Ax. During my time in Miami, I taught at Miami Northwestern High School as part of the MusicLab program, as well as working with other local high school students during the Side-by-Side projects. In 2017, I moved back to the Northern Virginia area where I taught in schools and privately,
and performed with groups such as the Richmond Symphony, Kennedy Center Opera, Nashville Symphony and Pittsburgh Symphony. I have also performed with the Boston Symphony and Jacksonville Symphony. I am a big believer in the power of music, and have taught students in Medellin, Colombia, Nashville, TN, Miami, FL and Japan.

I am an active performer and teacher of bassoon, and am still an active learner on my instrument. Lessons with me are fun, engaging, and informative on this unique and often difficult instrument. I strive for my students to love the bassoon and enjoy working on their craft, whether a beginning band student or an aspiring professional. I earned my Bachelors of Music in Bassoon Performance from Sacramento State University and am currently earning my Masters of Music in Bassoon Performance at University of North Carolina, Greensboro. I also can help with reed making and adjusting, I make all of my own reeds and have for years.

About Jack
Jack Fanning has been teaching the bassoon since 2015. He is currently available to teach lessons online, or at the student’s home (and is ready and willing to travel within the NC Triad area). Jack aims to make each lesson fun, enjoyable, educational, and informative. He has helped middle school and high school students win positions in youth orchestras and honor bands in California and North Carolina.

Jack studied bassoon performance with Dr. David Wells in Sacramento, CA, and is currently studying bassoon performance with Dr. Michael Burns in Greensboro, NC. The tutelage of these great bassoonists fostered a love of music education and sharing the magic of bassoon playing with younger students.

Jack is an accomplished bassoon reed maker and makes his reeds available to purchase for his students. The importance of a good reed to
a young bassoonist is paramount; it is key to making great music and being successful from day to day.

I couldn't be more happy with the bassoon lessons that Jack has with my daughter. The online lessons are so convenient and a great way to work with this fantastic teacher. Jack's teaching style is extremely positive and supportive. He encourages my daughter to push out of her comfort zone and grow as a musician. The progress that she has made with him is incredible. He is very knowledgeable about music and integrates music theory, sight reading, and rhythm studies into their lessons. You can see that he loves playing and teaching the bassoon and that excitement carries over to my daughter. She never wants to put her bassoon down after their lessons! Lessons with Jack have been the best thing we've done to support her playing bassoon.

Being a professional bassoonist in the Tucson and Phoenix Communities, I bring a wonderful range of expertise to any student. In lessons, we work on bassoon fundamentals: technique, tone, and reed-making.

What is exceptional about lessons with me is that I make all of my reeds from scratch: from the tubes! I will teach you how to make reeds this way and how to fine tune your reeds.

I also play the contrabassoon, which is a very rare find in a bassoon teacher. I am willing to teach bassoon and contrabassoon lessons.

I have several incentives in my studio: loyalty rewards, free reeds, and extended lessons.

Because I understand the overall expense of being a bassoonist, I also sell my professionally finished bassoon reeds at a discount to all my students.

I look forward to hearing from you!

About Jessica
I started playing the clarinet in 6th grade. I soon realized that I was a decent musician, but the clarinet just wasn't fulfilling... then I saw it. The BASSOON. I fell in love with this instrument. So much so, that I have two degrees and professionally play in Arizona! I currently play in the Tucson Symphony, Arizona Opera, True Concord Voices and Orchestra (Grammy-nominated), and Broadway in Tucson.

I have had my own bassoon studio since 2002. I started in Florida and moved out here to begin my doctorate in bassoon performance. I am originally from Columbus, GA, where I received my Bachelor's in Music Performance degree. I then went to Florida State University and completed my Master's of Music Performance degree after being a full-time teaching assistant.

I have been making my own bassoon reeds from scratch since 1996 and continue to
research and hone my craft. I have a professional reed-making business through Etsy and eBay, and soon to be (unofficially) bassoon/oboe websites.

Being a crafty person, I am also trying to develop my own silk bassoon swabs and bassoon-wrapped pencils! When I am not doing that, I make my own jewelry to give to friends and family.

I have been teaching beginning and intermediate bands for the past 8 years. I love teaching beginners to help them figure out how to accomplish learning an instrument. It is a challenging thing to do, but I make learning a new instrument fun and as easy as I can. I have been playing the Bassoon since I was in 8th grade and minored in it in college. I have taught privately for 10 years now on all band instruments as well as Piano! I enjoy playing the bassoon in my free time as well as all woodwinds in Pit Orchestras around the Rochester, NY area, and I play the clarinet for the Eastman Community Music School's Music Educator Wind Ensemble. I would love the opportunity to share my love of music and instruments with you.

About Rebecca
I have been teaching in Public Schools for 8 years and teaching privately for 10. I love teaching beginners through the intermediate level. Students just starting off learning an instrument need an experience that is going to be encouraging and fun. I have taught ages 5 through adult on all band instruments and piano. Work with me and I will help you to learn an instrument, read music, and have fun while doing it! Learning to play an instrument is a life long skill that will last forever!
