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