02 Posture

The bassoon is a big instrument and small adjustments to your posture have a big effect on your sound and general playing.

03 Breathing and blowing

This class is all about how to optimize the fundament for any wind player. How you breathe and blow properly and how adjustments can lead to big improvements in your playing.

04 Reed warm up

We all know that sound of a squeaking reed - but warming up only on the reed will quickly determine your problems and can be solved by simple changes.

05 Embouchure

Ole Kristian shares his original ideas about how a flexible embouchure changes your playing. Intonation, sound and volume is all affected by how well your embouchure is built.

06 Sound

How do you develop a flexible, open and rich sound? That´s what this lesson is about.

07 Vibrato

How to dose the right quantity of your vibrato? How to develop it and get more aware of how it works? Find out

08 Tonguing

Single-double and tripple tonguing and how to build these useful tools up in your own playing is what is covered in this lesson.

09 Technique

Clumsy and slow fingers versus fast and agile and flexible technique. Everyone dreams about playing with a flawless technique and Ole Kristian is for sure one of the few with such a strong technique.

10 Soft Playing

You need to know how to play piano and soft in order to master the basson. Getting tips and tools to get there is what the final lesson is about.

Perfect combination of inspiration and systematization! The first cannot without the second to get top results!!! Ole Kristian did it! His approach is not the only one to succeed, but it is a consistent, user-friendly one, given in a very friendly, helpful style! Great!

Thomas Bolm

This video got me really started after 10 years away from the bassoon. I am a guitar pedagogue myself, and I am able to recognize a pedagogue when I see him. Excellent!

Benedikt Viertauer

I am a bassoon student and i was very interested in Ole Kristian Dahls bassoon exercises. This video is really good and i learned so much from it. Thank you!

Julie Medlin

The 'play with a pro' course was interesting and useful, especially for people without access to a teacher. The basic fundamentals covered all the important topics to get the player to improve habits. The order of presentation was well thought out.
