Bassoon Instructor for Young Bassoonists
I am currently studying for my Master’s degree in Latvia and teaching young bassoonists.
When I was 10 years old, I convinced my parents, that I really want to go to a music school. It was the middle of semester and all of the most popular instrument classes were full, so I had to choose between the bassoon and the double bass. I wanted to play a wind instrument and one of my cousins already played the bassoon, it wasn’t a hard choice!
Studying the bassoon instantly opened doors to some very cool opportunities, like, playing in a youth symphony orchestra and a wind band. There are not that many bassoon students in Latvia, so there were almost no competition for me to have a part in such activities. I probably wouldn’t have chosen a career in music, if I played another instrument!
