In the Summer of 2017 I retired after twenty-one years as second bassoon at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (London). Before that, I spent seventeen years at ENO.
Although I have left the ROH I am still busy playing and will continue to make reeds.

On my website, you'll find my reflections on playing the bassoon (in particular second bassoon) and the world of music in general. It might be of interest to bassoon students, teachers, amateurs and fellow professionals. Although this site is U.K. based, I hope there is something here for those from elsewhere.

I sell the bassoon reeds that I make. These are exactly the same as those I use. For more information, please click here

It seems that all web sites these days need to have a cookies policy so here's mine: If you are buying reeds through the 'On-line Shop', I do need to use cookies. Other than that, this web site does not use cookies.
