My Daughter plays the bassoon, (studying for Grade 5) but is always complaining as there is no popular music written for the bassoon. We have heard on You Tube people playing everything from Coldpay to the Beatles but I canít find the music for this anywhere. I assume most people are very talented and have come up with it themselves; however, I would like to buy her some music for Christmas. Can anyone give me some advice as to where I could find some modern pieces for her please? I have trawled a lot of music sites and canít find anything and as a non musician I canít help to write it either.
There's a difference in terminology here.
The Grade 5 here refers to the Associated Board music exams in UK. Nothing to do with 5th grade school - which means nothing to this guy on the Eastern side of the Atlantic.
