Topic: Advanced Bassoon pupil - help needed!
I'm a new member, and have joined the forum in a bid to help my teaching!
I have a student who gained his Grade 8 bassoon three years ago, and is now in his final year of school. He doesn't want to do his Diploma, and is not going on to study music after school. I am running out of ideas of things to do in his weekly half-hour lesson. We have covered the standard Mozart/Weber/Hummel concertos and weber andante and Rondo, and have also been though others such as Milde studies and Bourgois Fantasy Pieces. would really appreciate any recommended pieces or technical exercises that I could do with him, as I have exhausted a lot of my own, and don't want him to get bored. He tends to have a wobbly tone on long high notes, so any tried and tested ideas would be great too!
Thanks so much!
