The six-volume tutorial series "The Bassoon" provides a comprehensive introduction to the instrument and its way of playing by combining textual commentaries with music sections. Addressed to both hobby musicians and aspiring professional musicians, the bilingual German-English edition is suitable for use internationally.

The first volume of the course provides comprehensive information about the bassoon and its history, together with technical aspects of playing it, such as the player's posture, embouchure, breathing, and tone production. Given in addition are general explanations such as about musical notation, meter and time or dynamics. For example, practical advice is offered in conjunction with articulation or dynamics, helping the student to implement specifically what has been learned into practice. Tips for optimal practicing methods will promote the student's learning success. As in the other volumes, the 36 lessons include tone studies, technical studies, and three etudes each, supplemented by scales and clef-reading exercises. For an overview of the different fingerings, a fingering chart is appended. 184 pages.
