Bill Tuck

After early studies on the flute with Stephen Preston at the Guildhall School of Music in London he developed an interest in the problems of staging eighteenth century music theatre, particularly dance and pantomime. He is a founder member of Chalemie and performs in Commedia with Barry Grantham's Intentions Company.  His principal interest is as a writer and deviser of  eighteenth century style pantomimes.

He has played and taught  pipe & tabor for many years and developed a particular interest in the 15th century dance repertoire. As accompanist he has worked with a number of dance groups and dance teachers on courses and performances of early dance.

He is also an enthusiastic performer upon the sackbut (or early trombone).
