*Opening a Can of Worms: Demystifying Vibrato

Opening a Can of Worms: Demystifying Vibrato

Glenn Einschlag, bassoon

Let’s face it…vibrato is one of the most important elements in a musician’s expressive palette. It must be developed and nurtured just as much as technical fluidity, proper intonation, beautiful tone, and consistent reed making. However, control over one’s vibrato tends to be somewhat elusive for many players. In this lecture, we will explore various explanations of where vibrato originates in the body, how it should be employed, and most importantly, how to effectively practice it so that each player can successfully develop their own individual vibrato.
