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.

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, I don't use cookies.
