Finding a Bassoon Teacher

When considering which Bassoon teacher is for you, think about which style of music you would like to pursue. Most teachers will have one or two styles that they specialise in above others. Our listings provide information about the genre specialities of each teacher on their profile, so you can better assess which teacher is right for the ambitions you have for your musical journey.

We recommend compiling a shortlist of 2-3 teachers which you may like to work with and giving each of them a call to see their availability, introducing yourself and setting up an initial trial lesson.

Mmus Performance

Sydney-born Bassoonist, Rebecca Allen, completed her master’s degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2019 as the David and Margaret Phillips Awardee. She was correspondingly supported by the University of Sydney with the Boulton Groom Postgraduate Scholarship, representing female graduates who received their secondary education at an institution within the Australian public educational system.

Between 2011-2017, Rebecca studied under Andrew Barnes at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. She was also taught by Matthew Wilke and Noriko Shimada (Sydney Symphony Orchestra) and both Douglas Eyre and Matthew Ockenden (Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra). In Australia, Rebecca has performed as a freelance Bassoonist/Contra-Bassoonist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Omega Ensemble, and The Metropolitan Orchestra. Through this, she has worked both on stage as an Orchestral and chamber musician with musicians such as Andrew Haveron and Paul Meyer, as well as in Sydney’s Trackdown studios for the recording of Nigel Westlake’s film score for “Ali’s Wedding”.

Whilst in London, Rebecca studied under renowned musicians Daniel Jemison, Dominic Morgan, Miriam Gussek and Peter Whelan within the Orchestral Artistry program, in association with the London Symphony Orchestra. Rebecca has taken part in many Guildhall Symphony Orchestra concerts in the Barbican as Principal Bassoon, side-by-side orchestral sessions with LSO players, and sit-ins in LSO rehearsals. This has given Rebecca the opportunity to learn under conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Francois-Xavier Roth, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Sir Mark Elder and Marin Alsop.

Since studying, Rebecca was awarded the position as an extra player for the BBC National Orchestra & Chorus of Wales, and the Royal Northern Sinfonia. She is working as a freelance Bassoonist and Contra-Bassoonist throughout the UK.

Further, Rebecca began music teaching in September 2019 to students across London. Previously, she enjoyed teaching Bassoon and Flute at multiple schools in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Rebecca is particularly dedicated to teaching the Fagottino (a mini Bassoon) to younger students, introducing the bassoon to multiple schools, and hopes to pursue this further alongside her orchestral career in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I expect to pay for Music Tuition?

    There are many factors that affect the price of one-to-one music lessons, such as qualifications, experience, and whether the teacher travels to you or teachers from home. 

    The Musicians’ Union recommends an hourly rate of £35 for music teaching, however, in our experience, this is normally higher in London and you can expect to pay anything from £40-60 per hour.

    Most importantly, you should find the right teacher for you (or your child).

  • Are your teachers CRB checked?

    We don’t verify that teachers on our database are CRB checked, but most music teachers who have worked in the UK school system, will be required to maintain a regular CRB, and will always list it on their profile.

  • What's the typical length of a lesson?

    Lesson length is a common question we get asked.

    The first thing we suggest taking into consideration is the age of the student, we find that younger beginners, can benefit from regular lessons of 30 – 45 Minutes each, as their attention span is less than the typical adult.

  • I'm a Teacher, how can I be listed on your site?

    To be listed as a teacher on our site, please fill out the form, with all the relevant information completed. A few things we require, up to date pricing, locations, styles.

  • Do you have Teachers outside the North London area?
