Recorder Ensembles

 **RECORDER CLASSES & ENSEMBLES ~ ages 7 to Adult 

Recorder is a wonderful instrument for children and adults that can bring joy for a lifetime. It is an instrument in its own right with an extensive intermediate and advanced repertoire. It can also serve as a first instrument that provides a good transition to another instrument. Beginning classes are limited to 3 or 4 students. Private recorder lessons are also available for children and adults. ******************************************************************************
