After playing as badly as his Grade 5 classmates, Anthony gave up playing recorder until at age 15 he heard recorders played well at his sister’s school recital and was inspired to work through a couple of method books. This led to his professional debut busking on the streets of London while training to be a dancer. After giving it up again during a busy life as a professional dancer, choreographer and dance professor, a friend talked him into buying a plastic tenor to help form the Mount Pleasant Quartet. This led to taking serious lessons, attending multiple workshops and acquiring many lovely instruments. Now fully retired from dance, he performs as much as possible with Bergamasca, the Alouette Baroque Ensemble, Tea Tootlers and Flootabex, as well as playing with several Lower Mainland choirs. As a recorder teacher he draws on his 40 years of teaching dance technique and on his memory of working to improve his own many bad habits.
