I am the second bassoon at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (London) and you'll find here 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.
If you have any bassoon news that you would like me to include on web site, please send me an e-mail .
I sell the bassoon reeds that I make. These are exactly the same as those I use at the ROH. For more information, please click here. Please note thatI won't be able to send any reeds off until the second week in August.
