Welcome to my Site! Willkommen auf meine Seite!

I play bassoon, baroque bassoon, classical bassoon, recorders, bass dulcian and other renaissance winds.
My search for creative outlets has led me both to the study of early and contemporary masters. Playing music of the past on the instruments of the past has opened up to me the world of rhetorical music. Contemporary music allows me to play in a space that challenges both myself and my audiences to soundfull, soulful, contemplation. What motivates me is the ability to connect and share, with my colleagues, with my audience, my students. Through sound and the written word via my blogs and writings, I wish to share my exploration of the beauty and truth in music.
