Topic: Store bought reeds
I've been invited to present a session at this year's NJMEA conference (New Jersey Music Educators Association.)
I thought it might be helpful to present a session on how to adjust bassoon reeds that students are actually using, using a minimum of tools and techniques. I'd also point out the similarities between double reeds and single reed mouthpieces.
I'd like to know from either teachers or students, what suppliers are being used by middle and high school bassoonists.
If you reply and your supplier offers different brands and/or models, please be specific.
Thanks a bunch in advance!
