Drew Pattison is a leading bassoon pedagogue of the next generation. His research into practice techniques allows his teaching to scale as each student develops their own voice. He is proud to combine the best lessons from his teachers including George Sakakeeny at Oberlin, Bill Buchman at DePaul, Richard Beene at Colburn, and Ben Kamins. He has been the head coach and athletic director of the Oberlin bassoon department since 2017.
