With great sadness we announce the passing of ADRS Honorary Member John Cran at 92 years of age. As the Principal Bassoon of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and teacher he had a very large influence on double reed playing in Australia. Our thoughts are with Lucinda Cran and family.

Clare Payne profileClare began playing the bassoon in Auckland, New Zealand. After an initial career as a primary school teacher, she moved to Australia in the early 1980s to study bassoon with Peter Musson and Gordon Skinner. She was a bassoonist with the Victorian Wind Quintet in Bendigo before moving back to Sydney to freelance and teach.

Clare has over 25 years of experience teaching bassoon both privately and in schools and still plays with local orchestras and chamber ensembles. She currently teaches both classroom music and bassoon at Sydney Grammar School where she has had enormous success starting young players on the fagottino and nurturing her students from beginner to diploma level.

Charles Klein profileCharles was 22 when he decided to make music performance a big part of his life. A violin came his way, and he found a brilliant teacher, Claire Bourdet, a student of Igor Oistrakh, who promptly warned him that as an adult learner she would be brutally honest with him and that lessons would cease the moment he reached an impasse.
