Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have been playing the bassoon for 14 years, and have extensive experience in a wide variety of ensembles, including orchestra, chamber ensembles, and as a soloist. I believe that we each experience music in our own way, so I try to relate the music to you in a way that is personal to you. We will work through standard method and etude books to improve literacy, technique, and musicality, and then apply these concepts to repertoire that inspires you and that you want to play.
