James Risdon

I am the Access Lead at ABRSM, responsible for the day to day provision and administration of access arrangements and reasonable adjustments for candidates with specific needs. I am also a member of ABRSM's Diversity and Inclusion group, and involved in several other projects relating to accessibility. Away from ABRSM, I am a freelance recorder player. I am a founder member of the British Paraorchestra and appear on their recent album 'The Unfolding' with hannah Peel. I also play recorders with RNS Moves based at Sage Gateshead. I have a passion for bringing the recorder and its music to new audiences and am equally at home playing early music and working on new commissions. I learn using braille music and some audio scores.
