Mark graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in 2019 with First Class Honours, having been awarded two scholarships to study. He specialises in historical bassoons and studied both dulcian and baroque bassoon with Andrew Watts and Ursula Leveaux.


Aside from his work with the English Wind Consort and his own baroque group, Ensemble La Notte, Mark also freelances as a period bassoonist with many UK-based early music ensembles, including the Academy of Ancient Music, the Musical and Amicable Society, Instruments of Time and Truth, and the Oxford Bach Soloists. As a modern bassoonist, Mark has performed with orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Gala Orchestra.


Mark also has a strong background in the world of choral music and for several years sung with the choirs of Worcester and Birmingham Cathedrals. In 2022 he was pleased to undertake the role of Director of Music at Pembroke College, Oxford University. He also founded and directs the alumni choir of Oxford University, Standish Consort. 


In his free time Mark enjoys all things dog related and can often be found on the footplate, firing steam locomotives around the Cotswold countryside!
