 Re: Hand size and bassoon

I reckon that if you can cope with the oboe you should be OK with bassoon - the stretch for the right hand on bassoon is no worse than the oboe although the left hand is more tricky. A good friend of mine has small hands for an adult & copes fine. You might not be able to use a hand rest (crutch) or have to cut down the stem. It is possible for a repairer to realign keys slightly & make minor modifications to help if needed without too much cost.

The only way to know is try it! Good luck.
