Recorders are enjoying a modern revival
Music is for everyone and playing a Recorder is brilliant for all ages. The focus of this site is the ADULT Amateur player and is a central information source for the Recorder community in Brisbane and SEQ - classes, groups , workshops or links to other sites. There are hundreds of years of music written for the Recorder family of instruments, including the fabulous modern repertoire. It deserves to be played.
