Welcome to the Recorder Class Here you will find all the necessary information needed to get you started with your recorder. The site is frequently updated to reflect the latest information, from class schedule to important recorder news.
Recorder playing is widely popular throughout Europe. Played in schools, churches and concert halls, the recorder has always brought musical enjoyment to any home. Sometimes associated with the sound of cheap plastic instruments, a wooden recorder – still very affordable – reveals a beautiful instrument of remarkably clear and sweet sound. Since recorders are played and enjoyed by people of all ages from grade school to senior citizen, our classes are available for young and old.
The simplicity of its design provides many benefits. Recorders have a very small footprint; they can be disassembled and easily carried around. They are very affordable – even when made out of wood! And there is very little maintenance: no broken strings or reeds, no mechanical fine adjustments or costly repairs.
Your recorder will accompany you throughout your entire life!
