Triquetrae Recorder Class Age 5 - 7 years

Music classes are very different to one to one lessons and are add-ons rather than 'instead of' lessons. They are also a great introduction to an instrument if a student is unsure.


"The recorder is a simple, direct melody instrument makes it the perfect instrument for young learners. It's possible, with good teaching, to get a good sound out of the recorder quite quickly. The soprano recorder is also just the right size for young children's hands. And it's a very portable instrument. The kids can carry it from home to school easily — unlike, say, a piano, which not everyone can afford to have at home. For training their ear to the scale and the role of each pitch within a scale, and for creating and resolving tension, a simple melody instrument is the best first instrument for kids" (Link)
