#6 – “I’m really enjoying the classes…”

“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.”

“ 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!”

“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.
