    You should check out this new bassoon method book, Music and the Bassoon, by Kristin Wolfe Jensen at the University of Texas at Austin. It is now online, enhanced with audio and video clips, free, so students can have unlimited access to aural and visual models. It could definitely be used by students in remote areas who might not have access to a bassoon teacher on a regular basis, by university music education methods classes, and bassoonists of all ages world-wide. The site contains:

    · Over 360 pdf examples of sheet music that she composed and arranged in pedagogical sequence for beginning through advanced bassoonists, organized into 50 progressive units.
    · Over one hundred sound clips of her performing the musical examples, providing aural modeling for the students. 50 of the sound clips are duets where students can harmonize with one part.
    · Over thirty video demonstrations of bassoon techniques and lessons with young students

    Everyone should look this over:
