Nicholas Shipman began to play the clarinet aged 14. Initially self-taught, he made rapid progress and at age 15 was spotted by a clarinettist in the Hallé Orchestra who advised him to join an intensive specialist training course for gifted young musicians at Leicestershire School of Music, where he received inspirational lessons from eminent clarinettists including Jack Brymer OBE.
At 17 he won a place at the Guildhall School of Music, where his teachers included Dame Thea King, and where in due course he gained his BMus (Hons).
He then spent two years at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (Netherlands). Back in London in 1999, he began to build his career as a professional soloist and chamber musician. Winning the Croydon Symphony Orchestra Soloist Award (1999) resulted in numerous performances with that orchestra and thence to concerts and recitals in London (Wigmore Hall debut in 2005) and throughout the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
He continues to appear with many orchestras and chamber groups, performing music by a wide range of composers both classical and contemporary. Local venues where he has played include the Guildhall, Bath, and St George’s Bristol.

“…Shipman was the star of the evening…virtuoso dexterity and agility of mind, lungs, lips and fingers…compelling…”  The Times

“…A musician capable of everything required both musically and technically…”  Sjef Douwes, Principal Clarinet, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra
