The sixth volume is devoted to the contrabassoon. Since learning to play this instrument should follow experience with bassoon playing, this volume tends to be for advanced students. The volume opens with an introductory text, ranging from a study of the instrument's structure and maintenance and also to such topics as the player's posture and breathing, to the history of the contrabassoon. This is followed by 18 lessons, consisting of exercises, etudes, and studies, also adding diversified orchestral studies of pieces by composers such as Beethoven, Schonberg and Britten. Also in this volume, fingering charts listing standard fingerings along with alternative fingerings and trills complete the comprehensive introduction to the contrabassoon in general and its way of playing in particular.

The six-volume tutorial series "The Bassoon" provides a comprehensive introduction to the instrument and its way of playing by combining textual commentaries with music sections. Addressed to both hobby musicians and aspiring professional musicians, the bilingual German-English edition is suitable for use internationally.

    This is the best ContraBassoon technique book I've seen yet. It's great in lesssons, and has some great music in it.
