The Bassoon-Family Fingering Companion was created with the support of a Special Projects Grant by the International Double Reed Society and with the aid of a research assistant supplied by the West Virginia University Division of Music.

The author wishes to thank members of his bassoon studio who contributed to the creation of this work. Beth Gardner contributed fingerings from Ronald Klimko's Bassoon Performance and Practice... and proof read some of the early material forming this work. Jamie Sinatra contributed fingerings found in The Instrumentalist from 1964 to the 1994.

Most of all Lisa Hoyt, my research assistant, deserves special recognition for the hours she spent in Autumn 1996 marking the files in HTML format. Her patience was commendable and her help invaluable.
