This site is a central information source for the Amateur Recorder community in Brisbane and SEQ. There are hundreds of years of music written for the Recorder family of instruments, including the fabulous modern repertoire. It deserves to be played.

What do you want to do?

  • play socially or more seriously - see classes menu tab
  • find a group - see Monthly afternoons or Other group
  • attend a workshop in Qld - see Brisbane July Weekend menu tab
  • buy a recorder or a recorder stand 
  • take lessons 
  • learn more about the recorder 

This site is not intended for the trained or professional musician as there are many other sites dedicated to you - although I will be supporting recorder concerts and performances. Please have a look at the menu and the links page for information.


Send me an email via the Contacts page and please re-visit this site to see what is coming up in the wider recorder community.
