I'm terrible at sight reading. She helped me become better. We had entire lessons on rhythm without even picking up the bassoon (which is great because I was sick in bed with covid for a few weeks) she would look over my music for band and help me through the really difficult parts. She even taught me things about my bassoon I didn't know, after playing the bassoon for 3 years. She's a really good teacher.
