In recent years he has also performed on original instruments, the baroque horn, the classical hand horn and the Vienna Horn. He is particularly keen on chamber music and is a founder member of Harmonie Musik and Corucopia. He currently holds a teaching post at the University of Bristol.
Away from music his interests are mountaineering, rugby, gardening and cats. The mountaineering included an attempt to get in the Guinness Book of Records by playing hose pipe duets at 22500 ft in the Himalayas with BHS member Alistair Smith.
