Biography

From Clydebank, Richard is regarded as one of the most versatile and talented young flautists in the UK.
Studying first at the RSAMD, he went on to win one of only three coveted places at the Conservatoire in Strasbourg.

His tutor at the Conservatoire writes that he is one of the most interesting musicians of his generation. His musical sensitivity and talents allow him to play both mainstream repertoire and the most demanding contemporary repertoire with an absolute mastery.

This high praise is borne out by the number of musical prizes that Richard has garnered in the last few years.

How the Award Helped

The Dewar Arts Award helped fund Richard for two years through his studies at the Conservatoire in Strasbourg.

Since the Award

The award has re-affirmed the self-belief needed to exist as a member of the arts community. I now feel that I have 'arrived' in Europe and I hope to build on this in the future
