RIAN MORGAN

Seattle, Washington

My name is Rian Morgan and i’m a 16 year old, female bassoonist from Washington. I switched from flute to bassoon, and I’ve been playing it for 3 years now. Switching instruments was one of my best decisions i’ve ever made in my “musical career” so far. While I loved the flute, bassoon quickly became my favorite instrument because of its range, versatility, and its warm and rich tone. My bassoon has opened up a gateway to many opportunities. It got me into many different orchestras, band programs, competitions, clinics, and trips.
