Enjoy your bassoon, the wonderful sound it makes, and the beautiful music written for it. Never try and struggle alone - if a reed is not behaving and is too difficult to play, or if something seems not quite right with the instrument, always consult your teacher as quickly as possible. If your instrument does have a problem, take it to a trusted repairer as the mechanisms are very delicate.
