Paul Edmund-Davies established his international reputation as flautist and soloist in the twenty years that he was Principal Flute of the London Symphony Orchestra and then five years at the Philharmonia Orchestra.
In June 2007 his book, ‘The 28 Day Warm up Book for all Flautists…eventually!’ was first published. This 150 page, now in its tenth edition, has been translated into Japanese, Spanish and Russian and has reached most corners of the world.
As a result of the success of this book, Paul launched a flute focused online educational website. Simply Flute (www.simplyflute.com) is a platform dedicated to providing instruction and exercises to help flute players of all stages and ages on their respective musical journeys.
His latest book, ‘A Consequence of Sequences’, was published in February 2018.
Paul has also played on many Hollywood blockbuster film soundtracks, From Star Wars and the early Harry Potter films to Mission Impossible, Interstellar, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them, Beauty and the Beast, Wonder Woman, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Victoria and Abdul. And more recently Godzilla, Shazam, Angry Birds 2, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Wonder Woman 1984 and the soon to be released James Bond movie, No Time to Die.
He is very honoured to be Officier de l’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne.
