Teachers: Make Friends with a Bassoon!

  • thumbnail for Christopher Weait
  • The bassoon is often least-known by instrumental teachers. This 50-minute clinic will allow 12 teachers (first-come basis, no bassoon experience necessary) to play on provided Fox bassoons and reeds and discover the bassoon is easy to play. At the end of the clinic they will play a simple ensemble. The goal is to encourage teachers to start young players on bassoon. Observers will benefit from the close-up PowerPoint displays which illustrate each detail of the presentation.
