  • January 07, 2010 Amazing Method

    This book, as many before me have said, is the bassoon "bible." It is better suited for a musician who already has some background in music rather than a beginner. It starts off with very basic exercises, and continues to even college level etudes. This is a must-have for...

    a bassoonist of any level.

  • September 05, 2007 I've used this book for 20 years...

    This is a great book for any bassoonist. It starts out very easy for the beginner and gets more difficult for the high school student. It contains scales and has a section that explains tenor clef and ornamentations. It also has a dictionary. I am a bassoon teacher and all...

    of my students use this book.

    The Practical Method for Fagot, by Weissenborn, is an inescapable treaty for any student who begins in so noble instrument. This edition, which comes with the Op.8 of he himself author, I recommend it without doubt.
