I have probably tested the note game on the Bassoon more than any other instrument. It was my main instrument when I was a kid and it has been great to have an excuse to rescue it from 20 years in my attic!

I have to say that My Note Games seems pretty reliable with the bassoon. However, your embrasure will need to be fairly good to keep the notes in tune. If you are a beginner, you might need a break when your mouth gets tired. I would advise against tuning the app to your instrument if you are having problems. You are better of learning to play in tune.

I have played just about every instruments there is, in the last few months of testing the game, and I have to say, it’s a great instrument. Such character. And you will be in great demand for local orchestras!
