Bassoon Lessons for Seniors and Beginners

The bassoon is a double reed woodwind instrument that is primarily featured in orchestral music. The instrument is primarily known for producing a warm vibrato and deep rich sound with a wide range of notes. The bassoon can be one of the more difficult woodwind instruments to learn to play. The size of the instrument can be restrictive for many people, mastering the double reed can be a challenge, and you will be making use of all 10 fingers to work the keys. With that being said, as with any instrument, practice makes perfect!
