“Great educational and musical experience with bassoon lesson. It includes the technical aspects needed to enhance and consolidate the BASSOON interpretation in easy language. Clear, simple examples. assisted by theme-related reading. Jazz improvisation is explicit and instructional, encouraging you to practice to become a great improviser. My Bassoon Lesson with Alexandre Silverio was fulfilling, educational, and enjoyable.”
“Alexandre is a great teacher and coach with a big heart. I discovered him after listening to Entre Mundos and wanted to practice jazz and improvisation for pleasure. I improved my classical playing by playing jazz. His weekly planner, stretching advice, and self-care helped me heal from a shoulder injury. Alexandre helped me focus and change my playing style despite the distance. Any bassoon player looking for new insights should take his course.”
“I’m in love with the classes. I auditioned in December and studied online while on vacation. I had to play a technique, so I chose Milde-1 because it provided a class on how to do it correctly. Playing with my own reed, which you instruct, worked beautifully! (Approved in the first phase of Bacarelli Institute; will return in February for the second) I plan to take jazz classes, initially hesitant due to perceived difficulty, but have seen that it is achievable and enhances musicality.”
“Bassoonlesson.com is amazing; it taught me to listen and perform jazz more elegantly. From meandering bass lines to improv lines following modes and scales, the bassoon does it all, and best of all. Whatever I learned on the site has also helped my reeds. Stunning for bassoonists looking to develop. This is highly recommended!”
