Have you ever wondered what a bassoon sounds like? Or looks like?
Wait - what's a bassoon, you ask??
There are many of these kinds of videos floating around the internets. I've watched a lot of them, because I'm a music nerd and this is right up my alley. This was sent to me by one of my Red Balloons parents, and it is by far the best of its kind that I've seen. Entertaining and educational - watch it with your kids and you, too, will be able to tell a bassoon apart from an English Horn, a viola from a cello, and a timpani from a triangle. Just be careful - showing this to your kids might mean you end up with a tuba in your living room someday (seriously - she's amazing).
