I will cover embouchure, breath support, technique, reed making and reed adjustment, core repertoire and expanded repertoire, and orchestral excerpts, as well as basic extended techniques.

Learn how to play a Woodwind instrument with music lessons
I have a Bachelor degree in Orchestral Instrumentalist and I'm currently undertaking a Master degree of Music in Performance. As a Music teacher,my goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. I adapt my lessons to each student, because each student is different.

María Losada
Musical Theory Lessons and Bassoon Lessons, with a Master Student
I am a 24 year-old HBO student of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam who plays Bassoon. I consider music an essential part of our lives and our culture and, therefore, its learning is necessary so that we can enrich and develop fully as human beings. The bassoon offers lots of remarkable and distinguished qualities, that you can only achieve by learning this particular instrument, with a very characteristic sound.

Tobias
Construction of reeds for Bassoon - Arming and scraping
Hello! I am Tobias, a bassoonist for more than 5 years, and in this course I will teach how to prepare reeds for the bassoon. From assembling the reed to scraping it, this activity presents great complexity and a huge range of possibilities in the way of preparing it, which is why it is ideal for each bassoonist to be able to make their own reeds and find their desired sound. . This course will allow the student to prepare a reed simultaneously with the teacher (his/her own work team is required), or he/she can opt for a much more theoretical approach, where the student observes the preparation of the reed and is complemented with explanations of the armed and scraping. If the student wishes to scrape his own cane simultaneously with the teacher, he must request two classes on two different days, because the cane needs to take shape for a couple of hours.

Bassoon and Music Theory lessons specifically tailored to your needs. Meet an experienced bassoonist and a passionate musician.
I'm a bassoonist from Latvia currently studying in The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. I have experience teaching the bassoon in a professional music school and I have prepared my students for youth competitions and auditions for youth orchestras. I will also gladly teach music theory for people interested to improve their knowledge or start from scratch. I can also, of course, combine both in one lesson. I enjoy playing the bassoon together with my students and I believe that playing in an ensemble benefits musicians on every level.

Bassoon lessons with passion- an experienced musician and teacher gives private lessons in Brussels.
[fagott, bassoon, fagot, bassoon, fagotto] Hello musicians, I am a 28 years old bassoonist from Poland and I have just started studies at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, after Master and PhD studies in Poland. I have a lot of experience in teaching people of different ages, because I have been a teacher since 2016. I have just moved to Brussel, and I would love to share my experience to anybody who would be interested. Do not hesitate to contact me!

Iñigo Lz
Bassoon, initiation, intermediate and entrance tests.
Hello, I am Iñigo, I have played the Bassoon since I was 6 years old and I have a degree in teaching and a graduate in Bassoon interpretation at the CSMN, I also have experience as a bassoon teacher in different conservatories and music schools in the Basque Autonomous Community (Vitoria, Irún, Bergara, Arrasate ...) I propose an individualized methodology, based on the enjoyment of the instrument and the music without sticking to what is strictly classical. With me you can reinforce your technique and musicality, prepare entrance exams ... I also make my own reeds and have collaborated with different orchestral groups and bands (OSN, Pamplonesa ...). Maybe sharing my experience with you can help you. I encourage you to book an introductory class to meet us and find that this new way of conducting a class is truly amazing.

Learn music regardless of level and age
Music is essential for learning and deepening various subjects. It helps to know art, to train culturally, to broaden horizons, to improve in the studio, to the organization, to creativity, imagination and much more.

Juliana Mesa
Bassoon classes or music in general. Basic music theory and music theory
I teach bassoon and music classes in general. Within the bassoon course you can specify only the reed construction for the instrument. I can offer different areas of music education depending on the student's interest. I can also teach beginnings of music theory and music theory.

Bernat
BASSOON and MUSIC LESSONS for all levels! (Live and Online)
Hello, I am Bernat, I come from Barcelona, and I am a professional bassoonist. If you are interested in learning the bassoon, do not doubt to contact me! I started learning music when I was five. When I was eight I saw a bassoon for the first time, I felt in love with it and I started having lessons. I would like to share my passion with my students. I have experience teaching kids and adults, and I adapt the lessons to your needs, preferences and level. Either if you want to have a first experience with the bassoon or if you want to improve your level, I am sure we can learn a lot from each other. I am an experienced orchestra and chamber music player. I got my Bachelor in Historical Bassoon in Spain and my first Master in Den Haag Koninklijk Conservatorium. Currently, I am studying my second Master in France. I am specialized in historical bassoon performance, so I can teach modern bassoon, but also dulcian, baroque, classical and romantic bassoon. I can also offer reed making lessons as well as music theory lessons. My teaching locations are: - My appartment at Valkenboskwartien. - The student location. - Online.
