"I started making wooden flutes in 1994 and my interest rapidly expanded to include wooden whistles, low whistles and recorders. My thirst for information on woodwind instruments and their making led me to Matthew Dart's evening classes at the London Furniture College (now the London Guildhall University). Having had some 30 years experience in mechanical engineering, my progress was rapid, and very soon the new dicipline had completely taken over my life.
Today I make woodwinds of the flute family (Transverse flutes, recorders, whistles and low whistles) for customers all over the world. I make instruments based on originals from as early as the 13th century, including my own versions of the Gottingen recorder and Dordrecht recorder, I also make flutes and recorders based on those from the Renaissance period as well as my own designs of flute, whistle,low whistle and recorder for use by todays traditional musicians.
