Finchley Recorders

I adore recorders, and love sharing my enthusiasm for this lovely instrument with both children and adults. As well as private lessons, I run ad hoc 3-day summer recorder holiday schemes for small groups. Please contact me if interested for yourself or a child.

Currently I organise a monthly Finchley Recorder Consort group for adults to experience playing 1 or 2 a part. Again contact me if interested in lessons with a friend.
