Bassoon is one of the double-reed family of instruments, giving it a very distinctive sound. As with any wind instrument, bassoon can be started as soon as the student has their adult teeth, although typically students won't start playing bassoon until late in middle school or, more often, in high school due to the somewhat complicated nature of the embouchure required to get the correct tone, and the significant size of the instrument. Students of all ages are welcome to start learning bassoon, or study to improve their proficiency for any reason - auditions, upcoming performances, or just to reach a higher level of musicianship.
Bassoon lessons are available to students in all of our surrounding communities, including Tampa, New Tampa and Wesley Chapel.
