Bassoon Resource Guide: Home

This guide is intended to help you use the UNT Music Library to find printed music for bassoon, books about the bassoon, journals devoted to the bassoon, and more. 

The UNT Libraries use the Library of Congress call number system to classify books and scores in our collections. Call numbers for scores begin with the letter M. Here are important numbers to know for bassoon music. Under each individual number, scores are usually in alphabetical order by composers' last names. Once you know this, you can browse if you want to select some music.
