For our recorder fanatics we have prepared a special Newsletter just for you as we have some great opportunities coming up.
Recorder Knowledge, Repair & Care
We are delighted that Jacqueline Sorel will be returning to our workshop this year. Over the weekend of the 21 & 22 March she will be hosting two private groups; one with young children and one with professional recorder players. We will also have public sessions with her.
For everyone interested in the recorder Jacqueline gives a fascinating and exciting insight into the manufacture, adjustment and maintenance of recorders. Learn how to choose a new instrument, how the choice of wood affects the instrument, and so much more. You will also have the opportunity to try a number of instruments from her own workshop.
If you would like to attend please email email@example.com or call Daniel Bangham on +44 (0)1223 713 101 to find out the timings. There will likely be one session on Saturday and one on Sunday morning but due to a changing group session we still need to confirm.

Make A Recorder - Activity Day for Children
We have set new dates for the Children's Recorder Making Activity Days. These offer a unique opportunity for children to experience hands-on the processes involved in making something - a rare opportunity with today's educational focuses. They get to keep the working recorder they make, which is from the well known German recorder makers; Mollenhauer. A great holiday activity and/or birthday present.
July - Friday 24 | 10am - 1pm | Â£48 | Daniel Bangham
October - Sunday 25 | 2pm - 5pm | Â£48 | Daniel Bangham
For further details see our website.
