Student Profile

Making a more affordable reed 

Through a blend of music and STEM, four UT students are creating a new type of synthetic bassoon reed that could make bassoon playing more accessible. Reeds can be expensive. New bassoon students often spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on store-bought reeds. And because they're made of cane, they don't always last very long. The students used funding from the Butler School's Rainwater Grant to buy materials, conduct experiments, and propel their project forward.
