Antoine Bassoons


We are two (and a half) bassoonists who live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.  Combined we have almost 40 years experience playing with a variety of orchestras, bands and chamber ensembles.

Although we have “day jobs”, we try to do as much playing in the community as possible.

We offer handmade reeds, as well as playing, private teaching and ensemble coaching (for a small fee).

Please have a look around and drop us a line to let us know what you think.



"The bassoon is one of my favourite instruments. It has a medieval aroma, like the days when everything used to sound like that. Some people crave baseball...I find this unfathomable, but I can easily understand why a person could get excited about playing the bassoon."

- Frank Zappa
