Sound, Quality and Ethos

After being trained through the school of playing that would include professionals like Reginald Kell and Emma Johnson, we strive to achieve the best quality possible from the sound that we produce. This is based on a very rich tone particularly in the lower registers rising to a whole but sweet tone in the upper areas.

This is produced through careful and selective instrument setup, having a quality instrument with a larger bore and studying sound techniques and methods to achieve the highest standards. When teaching our pupils we encourage them to aim for similar standards.
