I have a lifetime's experience of
teaching at every level,
having worked with very young musicians, oboe beginners,
NYO and college students, through to
professionals requesting consultations
in matters of
tone, style, instrument choice, tuning and adjustment,
along with every aspect of reed-making.
I have given extensive coaching, masterclasses, lectures and demonstrations for the British, International and Finnish Double Reed Societies, the NYO GB, at the R.A.M. London, the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki and in British Summer Schools.
Lessons or Consultations
for the Oboe, Cor Anglais and all other sizes
to help with every aspect of
Technique, Musicianship and Control.
Above all, I hope to offer
straightforward guidance that will assist you to develop
Your Own Personal Style.
Interrelated Reed and Oboe complications
can be quickly separated,
a rare skill that routinely solves
much unncecessary anguish.
Oboists of every level of experience are welcomed.
