About the Webmaster
After a lengthy career as a taxonomic botanist I am now retired and living in Tasmania. Whilst science has made life possible for me, music has always made it worthwhile. My interest in performance practices of the distant past has centred largely on the recorder, although I have also played a number of renaissance reed instruments and the trombone. I taught recorder privately and at several tertiary institutions for many years on the larger island to the north of here. I have performed extensively as a soloist, have led early music ensembles and served as musical director of various recorder and early music societies in Sydney, Perth and Hobart.
