Recorder Programs

The recorder is an ideal first instrument for beginners of all ages, including adults. The technique is simple and fingering is easy on the hands, and a good sound can be produced right from the start. Recorder playing can be taken to advanced levels, or the instrument can be used as the perfect starting place before moving on to standard wind instruments. Beginning classes for adults are offered in two levels and there is an option for family classes.

Custom Ensembles - Online

Playing music with others is an essential element in developing your musical craft and ramping up the learning process in a very enjoyable way. Beginners will make faster progress, experienced musicians will be challenged to higher levels, and everyone can share one of the true joys of music through learning and playing together. Students of all styles of music - classical, jazz, rock - are invited to sign up for a Custom Ensemble.

Our new ONLINE Custom Ensemble program provides a group experience from the safety of your own home. You will work with one of our skillful faculty coaches in preparing and recording your music in both audio and video format. Rehearsals are held through the Zoom meeting platform, and recordings utilize the Acapella app for iPhone or iPad.

Experience in a chamber group or small ensemble is not required to participate in an ensemble, but students should have good basic technique on their instrument and strong music reading skills. If you have played in an ensemble before our Online Custom Ensemble program is a great way to get back to collaborating with fellow musicians.

Days, times, and start dates are coordinated with all the players and the ensemble coach. You will not be charged tuition until you have been placed in a group.
