Private Bassoon Lessons at the Ridgewood Conservatory

The bassoon, a member of the Woodwind family, is a remarkable double-reed instrument. With its larger size compared to the oboe, it boasts an extensive range and produces a deep, resonant sound.

The bassoon plays a significant role in orchestral, concert band, and chamber music compositions and occasionally finds its place in pop, rock, and jazz genres.

Similar to the oboe, beginners often find the bassoon to be a more challenging instrument due to the requirement of substantial air pressure to produce a pleasing tone.
