    Dear bassoon teachers,

    How do you feel about starting a 12-year old with full lips on bassoon? Her lips are much fuller/thicker than those for the average Asian. She initially wanted to play the oboe but I advise her against it because of her lips. Do you think she could do ok on bassoon?

    I’m sure she would be fine. :)
