Abstract: Teaching Woodwinds: A Method and Resource Handbook for Music Educators, William Dietz, General Editor, with Jerry Kirkbride/Hal Ott/ Mark Weiger/Craig Whittaker. Firstly for my double reed audience, let me say that the chapters in this text relating to the bassoon could be of use to any bassoon teacher whether teaching beginners or college students. I am adopting the text for my woodwind methods class but will also be excerpting materials to supplement my university bassoon studio teaching. As stated several times below, the descriptions and illustrations are excellent. While I have some differences of opinion about some of his pedagogical approaches, for the vast majority of the text I feel that Dietz’s descriptions are right on the money.
