My reeds have also improved a lot following everything I learned on the site. All sensational for those who want to learn and improve more and more in the bassoon. I highly recommend it.​”

“I’m really enjoying the classes…”

“I’m really enjoying the classes, in December I auditioned, and as I was on vacation, my study base was all with the online course… The fundamentals module was essential, I had to play a method and I chose Milde-1 that precisely there’s a class on how to do it well. I played with my own reed, which was all made as you teach and it worked very well! (It was from Bacarelli Institute, I was approved in the first phase, and I’ll be back in February for the second)
Now I intend to delve deeper into jazz classes, at first I thought it would be difficult, but I have already seen the first classes, and I saw that step by step it is super possible to play jazz, not to mention that it improves musicality…”
