Most people learn to play recorders pitched in C - usually the descant - but other members of the family, the treble, bass and tiny sopranino recorder, are pitched in F. Rae Strong’s accessible course will help you make the transition and have fun while you’re doing it. It will cover everything from basic note learning to ensemble playing, so that you’ll emerge from your stay at Benslow an altogether more versatile player.
