Drills is a collaborative publication based on the teaching of Ole Kristian Dahl (professor of bassoon at the Mannheim Conservatory in Germany), compiled, arranged, and edited by Kaitlyn G. Cameron. 

From the authors:

This book is a comprehensive practicing system that provides the basic fundamentals that I have found to be essential in my success as a musician and teacher of bassoon. "Drills" was created out of my own necessity for stability in the orchestra, and as a result it has become my daily practicing system for sharpening my tools of basic fundamentals.
