Bassoon – ‘Fox’

Current College: RAM Junior Dept
Principal Teacher: Jo Baillie-Stark

Standard Grade or Degree: LTCL

I was a member of The National Children’s Orchestra for five years, then The National Youth Chamber Orchestra last year. I have recently taken part in a side-by-side project with Southbank Sinfonia and I enjoy taking part in festivals and competitions both locally and further afield.

I plan to use the instrument to continue my studies and to gain as much performance experience as possible. When I have finished school I hope to audition for music colleges and my aim is to become an orchestral bassoonist.

I also study recorder with Barbara Law at The Junior Royal Academy and piano at school with Paul Turner.
