Will Duerden

Will Duerden was born in 2000 and began to play the Double Bass when he was seven years old, starting with a three-quarter size instrument which was considerably bigger than him! A year later he performed with members of the Yehudi Menuhin School at an event organised in conjunction with the West Sussex String Academy, and was then invited to audition for the Menuhin School, where he is studying with Caroline Emery (who was able to lend him an instrument that was more appropriate to his size).
