Learn to play the Bassoon!

The Bassoon is the lowest in pitch of the woodwind family, and is classed as an "endangered species" instrument because nationally not enough people are taking it up.

LSMS is looking for young people who would be interested in learning to play the bassoon, and is committed to making this affordable. We would like to hear from potential beginner instrumentalists with an interest in music, or students who already play an instrument and would be interested in either transferring to it or taking it up as a second instrument. The basic fingering is the same as the Treble Recorder. Find out more by watching our video below and get in touch if you are interested. Email LSMSPerformance@leics.gov.uk or call 0116 3050400
