Learn to play the recorder with a group of your friends and neighbors. The recorder is an instrument which has been enjoyed for more than nine hundred years. Its sweet sounds captivated both nobles and common people during the Middle Ages. It was a familiar sound at theaters in Shakespeare's time.
The great composers of the Baroque period wrote brilliantly and beautifully for the recorder, and modern composers have rediscovered its unique tonal qualities.
The recorder has also been used in folk music, jazz, even Broadway and film scores.
We will meet with a group of six at Evelyn's studio once a week to instruct rollicking regulars, helping them learn to play this simple, but beautiful instrument.
We will help the group learn to play together and enjoy the wonderful music repertoire available for playing duets, quartets and ensembles.
This group of new recorder players may choose to continue with weekly chamber ensemble gatherings in the future.
