Sandra is a research scientist by profession.  A bassoonist of professional standard, bassoon teacher, a former student of Hellen Peller, (formerly sub principal bassoonist in the Halle Orchestra), Sandra has a private teaching practice in the UK Stockport area.  It was her expertise in reed making, combined with her scientific approach that resulted in her writing the Bassoonist's Reed Doctor, initially for a friend. 

Her partner Peter Moore, encouraged her to extend the approach to other instruments and other areas of music, thus was born Dr Downing Music.  In addition to the Doctor Books, Sandra has used her scientific  training to research and develop her own highly effective teaching method for the bassoon.
