A WORD FROM CALLUM
My name is Callum Rookes, and I'm a professional musician based in London. My passion is conducting, but I can also be found frequenting the tuba - in fact, you may have seen me on parade donning the famous bearskin cap, and scarlet and gold tunic at Buckingham palace!
My life isn't all music, however, and as musically intense as my website is, there's a great deal more to myself.
From exploring London to find new and quirky independent coffee shops, to scouring Trip Advisor for the best gelato shops; there's nothing I like more than trying new craft gins, and sitting down and binging on a new Netflix series. I highly recommend "Game of Thrones" (not season 8), and suggest you all avoid "Tiger King".
I love travel, and I'm fortunate that my career has taken me from New York to Japan, and Cyprus to nearly all other European countries. However, I wouldn't mind making my way to Australia and Canada!
I invite you all to take a look through my site, and if I can be of any service to you, don't hesitate to get in touch.
