Lecture – Fernando Zúñiga-Chanto


The purpose of this lecture is to present a new approach to bassoon teaching at a pre-college and college-level that includes an introduction to electric bassoon. This project has been developed at the bassoon studio of the Universidad de Costa Rica, with the Electrofagot ensemble, a three electric bassoons band. Using multieffects pedalboards, the possibilities of the bassoon can be substantially expanded, allowing students to experiment with a wide range of effects, while also helping them to develop their technical and musical skills. This project has allowed me to compose and arrange works for solo bassoon and ensembles, that can be included eventually in the curriculum of future bassoonists.
