From customers:

Matthew B, 5 years ago

Matthew has an excellent technique, with an increasing tonal range and a hunger to develop swiftly. He has a deep interest in music of many sorts, old and new, and is always keen to try something off the beaten track and to uncover new experiences.

(Mark M, 4 years ago

Individually, they are some of the most talented woodwind students to have graduated from the Academy in recent years and collectively, they are able to combine these talents with a determination to balance their individual playing careers with their performing schedule as a quintet…...I truly believe they have the potential to become on of the leading wind quintets in the country.
