Improve your musicianship through playing recorder

Description

The recorder's place in musical history has been as an instrument for adults to enjoy for personal musical satisfaction together with the pleasure of playing with others. This course is an opportunity to learn the instrument from the beginning or perhaps recapture some of those skills once learned at primary school. It will encompass learning to read music and other critical musicianship skills as recorder techniques develop. The course would also be useful for teachers who would like to use the instrument in teaching children. The descant (or soprano) recorder will be used but course members who want to use a treble or tenor instruments can be accommodated after discussion with Roger. The recommended recorder is the Aulos one piece model which will be available at the WEA office from July 21st, together with the tutor book MUSIKit Recorder by Roger and Carol Buckton for $25.
