Private Bassoon Teacher

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

Hello!

I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I was a high school music teacher & band director in the Philadelphia area for 7 years, and I now live in Miami, FL where I am working on a doctoral degree in conducting. I also work as a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lesson specifics 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.

Online lessons are a wonderful option! I am flexible with scheduling and allow changes up to 24-hours before a scheduled lesson. My home studio has chairs, music stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

Tina has provided our daughter 11 year old daughter with outstanding lessons as a beginning trumpet player this past summer! Not only was our daughter able to skip beginning band and be placed into the more advance concert band with the 1st trumpets, she received an invite from her well known director of bands to participate in the school’s Big Band. Our daughter is quickly improving on her playing skills.
Tina will always be remembered as the primary influence behind her aspirations to play the trumpet the right way!

My daughters anxiety was high the first day of highschool for band. The students were seasoned and Lauryn had not practiced in months. Chloe eased Lauryn’s nerves and gave her the confidence she needed in just the 1st lesson! She’s awesome!

Private Bassoon Teacher

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'm so glad you're here!

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 Master of Arts in Teaching at Rhode Island College. I studied Oboe Performance at Longy School of Music for a year before decidingto pursue education further (I love teaching too much!.) 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 and all state level ensembles.

I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about pl

aying oboe & bassoon.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Private Bassoon Teacher

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 at California State University, Sacramento and studied bassoon performance with Dr. Michael Burns at University of North Carolina, Greensboro. The tutelage of these great bassoonists fostered a love of music education and sharing the magic of bassoon playing with younger students.

Jack holds a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Music Theory from University of North Carolina, Gree

nsboro. His training specifically focused on pedagogy of music theory and the study of current trends in music theory.

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.

Our daughter was amazed and in "Ah" with all she learned in just her first lesson with Jack. It was fantastic to see her excitement again for private lessons. So excited she wanted to continue playing and practicing even after the session. Thank you, Jack! She wanted me to let you know she is looking forward to many more days like this!😁👍

Jack is a friendly, encouraging instructor---a great match for my 11-year-old daughter. He's obviously an expert bassoonist, but does a fantastic job of explaining things clearly and simply for the less-advanced student. My daughter can't wait for her next bassoon lesson with Jack!

Claire
Very knowledgeable and friendly, and a great communicator about bassoon technique. Today was my daughter’s first lesson with Jack - She learned so much and has some good assignments to work on before the next lesson. We totally recommend Jack as an instructor!

Private Bassoon Teacher

I'm a Bassoon player with 12 years of experience. I have teach, played in orchestras, chamber groups and as a soloist artist.

About Edwin

I am a professional bassonist. I graduated from Vicente Emilio Sojo Music Conservatory (Barquisimeto - Venezuela) with a Bachelors of Music, specifically Bassoon.

The Bassoon is one of the most beautiful instruments but also one of the difficultest to play. Every bassoon player has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach bassoon students of all different ages and experience levels, or even begginers. I studied classical bassoon for 10 years.

I've play in different orchestras, chamber groups and also as a soloist player in numerous occasions. So I can help students to be prepared for any audition or concert they have scheduled.

My personal passion is clas

sic music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Private Bassoon Teacher

I am an experienced private bassoon teacher and performer of orchestral, chamber, and solo music. In addition to teaching bassoon, I aim to supplement lessons with instruction of music theory. I am an avid bassoon reed maker and will happily provide high quality reeds to students at an affordable cost.

About Gabriela

I am a bassoonist from California living in New York City, and I am graduating with my Bachelor's degree in Bassoon Performance from New York University in May 2019. In addition to studying music, I also freelance in the New York area and enjoy performing a wide range of music with orchestras, wind ensembles, and chamber ensembles. Having studied music and music performance for many years, I am aware that not all students learn the same way. As such, I enjoy getting to know students and identifying the most efficient yet comfortable way for them to learn this instrument. I aim for students not just to gain knowledge about the instrument, but to become thoughtful and adventurous musicians as well. As such, I am excited about supplementing bassoon lessons with instruction in music theory, and I am able to teach a variety of music spanning d

ifferent styles and time periods according to each student's goals and interests. As part of playing the bassoon, I do make all my own reeds and offer high quality bassoon reeds to all my students at an affordable cost.

"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 p
roficient 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. :)"
