“Alexandre is a fantastic teacher and coach with a big heart. I first discovered him after listening to his CD Entre Mundos and I wanted to have more fun and learn about jazz and improvisation. Playing jazz helped me with classical playing. I really benefited from his weekly planner, tips on stretching and self-care as I recovered from a shoulder injury. Despite the distance-Alexandre helped me find a new direction and focus in my playing. I recommend his course to anyone seeking new insights into bassoon playing, you are in good hands!”

“My name is Fábio Szabluk, I’m a member of the Bassoon Lesson, with the teacher Alexandre Silvério.
I find the site well – organized, coherent, easy and fast when you navigate through the links, videos, and tutorials. The course has a lot of content. The lessons are very good, and it’s possible for the student to clarify any doubts directly with the teacher. The modules are really complete, and the Alexandre Silverio’s initiative is excellent. Congratulations, Professor Alexandre!

I’m really enjoying the lessons, in December I did an orchestral audition, and, because I was on a school break, Bassoon Lesson was my source. The “bassoon fundamentals”module was essential. For the audition, I should play any method, and I chose “Milde 1” – which there is a lesson on how to play it well. The audition was for the Baccarelli Institute – Orchestra and I passed the first phase. In February is the second phase.
I played with my own reed, which was made according to your orientation, and worked very well!
Now I want to go deep in the jazz lessons. At the beginning of the jazz course, I thought it would be very difficult, but in the first lessons, I’ve noticed that step-by-step, is really possible to play jazz. And that is also good for musicality.
