Alice Quayle spent her school years learning to play the trombone on the Isle of Man. Here she enjoyed performing with a variety of ensembles, including big band, symphony orchestra and laterally the theatre pit orchestra.

Upon leaving school she accepted a place to retrain as a bassoonist in the Royal Marines Band Service where as well as learning to play the bassoon, she also learnt to play the bass drum and cymbals on parade, and how to survive living in a muddy hole for long periods. After leaving the band service her search for employment led her to a mushroom farm, where she worked for a year before taking up a place at the Royal Academy of Music to study the bassoon under Robin O'Neill, John Orford and Dan Jemison, and the contrabassoon under Fraser Gordon and David Chatterton.

Whilst studying she has been fortunate enough to perform some excellent repertoire with leading conductors, and has greatly enjoyed forming and working with her woodwind quintet, Cavendish Winds. The quintet were finalists in the Royal Overseas League in March 2016, and hold the Open Academy/Wigmore Learning Fellowship 2016/17, and are Tunnel Trust Award winners 2017/18.
