Online Bassoon Teacher

I'm a professional, classically trained bassoonist that plays with orchestras, chamber ensembles, and rock bands. I've been teaching private lessons for over 20 years and I'm available to work with students at any age and skill level including beginners, intermediate students who want to improve their skills (or are picking up the bassoon after time away), as well as advanced students looking for audition and performance coaching. Lessons with me are always positive, supportive, and tailored to each individual's goals and needs.

My method of teaching is motivating and rewarding, and my students always succeed on their scale tests, Region and All State auditions, and college auditions. We can work on major and minor scales, beginner to advanced etudes, solo literature, audition etudes, orchestral excerpts, contemporary music and extended techniques, music theory, and more.

About Kristilyn

I am a classically trained bassoonist with a passion for all types of music. I received my Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA) in bassoon performance from the Ohio State University, and my Masters of Music in bassoon performance from Arizona State University. In addition to holding a faculty position

I am an active performer and teacher of bassoon, and am still an active learner on my instrument. Lessons with me are fun, engaging, and informative on this unique and often difficult instrument. I strive for my students to love the bassoon and enjoy working on their craft, whether a beginning band student or an aspiring professional. I earned my Masters of Music in Bassoon Performance at University of North Carolina, Greensboro and my Bachelors of Music in Bassoon Performance from Sacramento State University. I also can help with reed making and adjusting, I make all of my own reeds and sell them on Etsy. My page is called ReedySetGoBassoon

Jack was immediately very engaging and a knowledgeable teacher . He was able to make a great connection and my children already feels more confident. It was wonderful to see someone understand what my child needed and they are feeling enthusiastic about bassoon again.
Marco B.
My 14 year old son is so impressed and appreciative of Jack and is learning a lot from him. Jack's style and approach is engaging and motivating. He's only 3 lessons in and has asked to continue "as long as possible"! We'd say Jack is a gem.

"I was impressed after one lesson - clear, concise explanations, attention to how I learn (visual, memorization, or through physical learning) so that lessons and instructions could be tailored to my learning style. Encouraging, energetic and profesional. I couldn't be more excited to have her as a teacher and suddenly this all seems a lot less anxiety-inducing and far more enjoyable. Totally banished the bad memories of grade-school music classes, which put me off learning an instrument for many decades."
