Hello,
I (try to) play the bassoon since september last year, so not even a full year :-)
Aged 59 and without any previous musical experience, I just now ended
my first year at the local music academy. Until now, it has been a real adventure!
I feel lucky to rent a bassoon from the school, I don't think I would have
started if I had to buy one myself. This may/will eventually be the case, but
since I didn't know if I would succeed in playing the bassoon, it would
have been rather risky to buy such an expensive instrument from the start.
School fees are also vey acceptable here in Belgium.
In the mean time I also make my own reeds, starting from gouged and profiled
cane delivered to me by my teacher. The reed making proccess seems black
magic at times, but I enjoy doing it, somewhat more if a reed will play :-)
Willy
