Welcome to my website for all things bassoon, contra bassoon, bassoon reed and music related.
With the magic of the Internet and the madness of Facebook and Twitter I thought I would secure a small piece of cyberspace for the world of the bassoon to try and collect together useful information that has taken years to accumulate and to share it with those who are interested.
If you are interested in bassoon reeds then click here
There is also a Youtube Channel for help with reeds.
There is also a blog for wondrous oon related things that I have come across.
Meanwhile there is a short Radio 4 interview "The Bassoon Saved" with me from 9th August 2015 linked here where I am put on the spot to help in the campaign to get more young people playing the bassoon.
Pictured here is my pre-war Mollenhauer bassoon. Since 2013 I have played a Leitzinger bassoon and a Mollenhauer contra bassoon.
Best wishes Tom Hardy
