Iona Walker is a graduate of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and professional oboist and reed maker based in Northamptonshire. She set up the very successful double reed site IonaReed.co.uk in 2014 which has gone from strength to strength in offering both oboists and bassoonists high quality reeds and accessories.
Following in the footsteps of her father Dr Robert Walker, an instrument repairer and engineer based in Durham, Iona trained as a woodwind repairer and launched Walker Woodwind Repairs in 2018. Iona offers a friendly and efficient service - with a specialism in double reed repairs - and her many years' performing experience ensures that all woodwind instruments can play at their best.
