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.

Since the series is designed to meet student needs by progressing in difficulty, it is optimally suited to support the different learning stages.

The textual commentaries in volumes I to III and VI are easy to consult, providing wide-ranging information about the bassoon as an instrument, its history, structure and maintenance, but also about its playing technique. The practical section consists of 90 self-contained lessons within the first three volumes and includes tone studies, technical studies, and three etudes each. The fourth volume contains bassoon duets, and the fifth volume presents compositions for bassoon and piano, both from the 17th to the 20th centuries, graded, like the etudes, according to difficulty. Volume VI focuses on the contrabassoon.

The fourth volume of the tutorial series contains 32 duets for two bassoons by composers of the 17th to 20th centuries, progressing in difficulty to offer bassoon students relatively quickly access to the pleasure of ensemble playing. The two parts are equally demanding, facilitating student-student as well as student-teacher ensemble playing.
