    Hello! I’m a high school student who is looking for daily exercises to improve my technique. I was just seeing if anyone had any technical exercises they could suggest for me. Thanks for your time!

    Oboe or bassoon?

    Sorry, forgot to specify that I’m a bassoonist.

    For raw technique, Kovar’s 24 Daily Studies can be very effective. The can be dry, but in small doses they work wonders if used as he intended. I especially suggest chapters 3, 4, 6, and 7.

    Happy Bassooning!

    I ‘second’ the Kovar studies – Harold Goltzer gave us these as our required fundamentals at Juilliard. The Milde Scale and Concert Studies are also great, and are interesting musically. Nowadays, I enjoy Christopher Weait’s Bassoon Scales for Reading, which help keep one in ‘shape!’ Good luck!

    Ok, I really like these, they are quite advanced but very fun to play, when I have time I try to play through the book.
