Playing bassoon in Groningen

For all ages and levels

The bassoon is the bass of the woodwinds. The instrument is versatile when it comes to sounds: in the low tones, the bassoon is somewhat coarse and grainy, in the middle register the sound resembles that of the horn and in the treble it comes close to the tone of the cello, viola or human tenor voice. That makes the bassoon an interesting instrument to play. The bassoon is a common appearance in the concert band, wind band and the classical orchestra, but in fact the instrument is needed everywhere. You can play very old to very new pieces of music and even jazz with it.

Do you want to play with your bassoon in an ensemble or orchestra? Then step into VRIJDAG, the house of amateur art for Groningen. Our professional teachers challenge you to get the best out of yourself musically. Fun and making music together form the basis for us. View the ensembles and orchestras in which you can participate with your bassoon below. Making music together with others is not only fun, but also educational. You are challenged to listen carefully to each other and to dare to solo.

Wondering if it is something for you? The first lesson is without obligation. You can cancel free of charge within three days of your first lesson. This does not apply to short courses (≤8 lessons).
