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.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Cassandra for 7 years. She is knowledgeable, kind, caring, and compassionate. She dedicates herself to her students and goes above and beyond to create educational experiences both in and outside the classroom. Her prices are very reasonable and she devotes extra time and energy to ensure all the tools needed for success with a double reed instrument are in place. She works well with beginning elementary students all the way through to college students auditioning for elite music studios. She is well connected in the bassoon community. It would be impossible to find a better instructor. My daughter will miss her when she is away in college.
Brenna
I switched from trombone to bassoon in my sophomore year of high school and took lessons with Cassandra for my junior and senior years. In that time, I learned faster and better than with any music instructor I've had in my life. Part of it was the necessity of learning how to play at a high school level incredibly rapidly, but most of it was due to Cassandra making it easy and fun to learn and practice. She was amazing at identifying bad habits or roadblocks before they became huge issues that were hard to address and coming up with solutions to help me get past them. And more than anything, she made me confident enough in my skill to truly enjoy practicing and playing again.
JC
Wonderfully motivating and terrifically skilled at teaching music, Cassandra was a blessed find for us as a bassoon teacher. Her knowledge of bassoon is extensive -and not just for playing and learning music - where to rent, how find quality supplies at a reasonable cost, on the fly simple repairs, who to go for more complex instrument maintenance,etc.... Lastly her connections in our local community allow for exposure and advancement if that is your kid’s path - or just fun and some enjoyable, confidence building performance experiences

Julia is an incredible teacher that taught me so much about bassoon, music, and life as a musician. Julia helped me to achieve many of my goals musically, including being accepted to summer festivals and getting accepted to music school. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have been able to study with her. I cannot recommend Julia enough!

"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."

"Jack is an AMAZING bassoon player and FANTASTIC instructor. He has taught my young son for over a year. We audited other music teachers who said they taught bassoon but really only knew the basics of teaching bassoon, their real expertise were other instruments. I was particularly impressed by Jack's ability to relate to my 11 year old son. He makes learning the bassoon not only informative but engaging and fun. Jack not only teaches classical bassoon music but is open to teaching modern pieces that my son wanted to learn. (I mean, how cool is it that my 11 year old kid busts out the Star Wars Cantina Song on his bassoon.) Jack plays bassoon regularly with orchestras which gives him real world experience that he passes on to his students. When I have seen him play professionally, it amazed me that someone so young could show such majority and skill with his musical instrument. Jack is also a great problem solver. When my son has problems with a piece, Jack is able to hear the problem and give my son techniques on how to fix them. When my son had problems with the instrument itself or the double reed, Jack was able to show my son HOW to fix them and not just fix it for my son himself. I highly recommend Jack has an instructor for students both young and old."

The one on one instruction and ability to do the lessons from home make things super flexible for our busy family.
