Recorder coaching to help you play fluently, freely and fabulously

Because playing is meant to be fun!

It seems so easy.The recorder is a beautiful instrument.Long, lyrical passages sound sweet and piquant. Fast passages warble and soar like birdsong. The great players like Piers Adams and Michaela Petri make it sound so easy!And at first it seems like a really easy instrument to play.

But there’s more to it than that!

When you start playing, you gradually realise that there’s more to it than meets the eye.How hard should you blow?How can I play those ‘pinch’ notes more easily?How do I learn to play fast passages more easily?Where should I breathe?
