Header for Reed Class

Reed Class

Every week, bassoon students have the opportunity to work on their reeds and catch up with their fellow bassoonists.

Students have plenty of access to the Double Reed Room.  Students not only learn reed-making techniques from me, but also share ideas with each other.

We have state-of-the-art reed equipment in the reed-making room.
