Welcome to the Bassoon Studio Website at the University of Arizona.

The bassoon studio at The University of Arizona is active at the School of Music and in the Southern Arizona region.  In addition to performing in large ensembles, in chamber music activities and in solo performances at the University of Arizona, students also regularly participate in activities in the Tucson musical community.

The studio is diverse and includes a range of players from DMA candidates in bassoon performance to undergraduate non-majors who continue to study and perform as they work towards degrees in other disciplines.

The studio presents an annual Bassoon Bash each spring in which all members perform.

Graduates of the studio are found in performing and teaching positions around the country and abroad. Others have used the discipline and skills they learned in their bassoon studies to excel in other fields.
