I am an enthusiastic advocate of the recorder and offer lessons to players of all ages. The poor recorder is often viewed as no more than an instrument for small children. It is so much more than this... it is a beautiful instrument that comes in many sizes and styles. It is perfect for many genres of music.
I also run a recorder ensemble called 'Sopranino' who meet regularly to play some of the beautiful recorder repertoire of the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
