It's 4 movements and pretty straightforward. If your kid can't go up too high, it'll be a problem, because like most bassoon solos, it lives in that tenor range. No tenor clef, though (that I can remember).
If that one is too hard (it's got some rhythms that he may not be used to), you'll have to jump down to Grade 2, and at that point, my knowledge starts trickling off.
