Friend are reporting the death of Ross Winters, former professor of recorder at the Royal College of Music.

Ross was 69.




  • John Humphreys says:

    Devastated by this news. Ross was a dear colleague at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire for many years and we enjoyed numerous Associated Board diploma examining sessions together. His wisdom, musical brilliance and droll wit will be much missed.

  • Marg says:

    Sorry to hear of his passing.

  • Malcolm Riley says:

    A great shock. Ross was a great help when I arrived as Director of Music at Ashford School I appreciated his quiet humour and wisdom. He will be greatly missed.

  • JussiB says:

    i think recorder professors get less respect than new age progressive musicologists.

  • Andrew Pritchard says:

    I was lucky enough to have Ross as my best childhood friend. It was a privilege to have known such a loyal person.
