Lesson Details

Bassoon

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
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!

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.
