This book is one of the most helpful and necessary books available to bassoonists today.

It includes etudes for players making their first sounds on the bassoon, all the way to the famous 50 Weissenborn Etudes (op. 8 no.2), the most popular set of etudes for students entering the world of serious bassoon playing.

For players in between, the book includes the Weissenborn Lessons (op. 8, no.1), designed for players to develop their knowledge of bassoon, of music theory, and of forms. The book also includes Ludwig Milde's 25 Studies in Scales and Chords, an essential set of works for those first learning scales all the way to professional musicians working to hone their musicality and velocity.

This edition also includes a compedium on the tenor clef, one of the largest hurdles for younger bassoonists to overcome. The guide to the clef introduces it in simpler terms, then gradually increases in complexity, guiding the player to facility.
