Hi. My name is Luke. I am a bassoonist, performance artist and creative music and soundscape workshop leader. I work with schools, communities, galleries, museums, heritage sites, hospitals and cultural organisations; collaborating with: musicians, dancers, actors, artists, sculptors, architects, animators and bakers! I perform with orchestras, ensembles and The North Sea Radio Orchestra.
I trained a Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. After completing my BA in Music, I went on to be the principal bassoonist of the Cyprus State Chamber Orchestra. On returning to the UK I completed the Guildhall School of Music leadership course and then an MA in orchestral playing.
As well as orchestral playing, I’ve been a member of the North Sea radio Orchestra for 15 years. North Sea Radio Orchestra is an English contemporary music ensemble and cross-disciplinary chamber orchestra.
“it’s the depth of thinking that goes into a moment, of true student centred learning, that can then appear to be so easy when it is facilitated so well (by you).” Collaborative workshop artist
“A very inspiring project that led to real creative freedom and an end result that was entirely the students.” Teacher, Candlebird Creative Composition Workshop, 2015.
