New to the recorder?

Many adults take up the recorder later in life and progress to be capable players.  It can be difficult to know where to start, so here are some links  and information that that you may find useful if you are thinking of starting.  It is possible to teach yourself, especially if you already play another instrument.


Have a look at these websites for classes, courses and playing days at various levels.
