Looking after your wooden recorder maintenance guide

This A6 size, 30 page booklet is packed full of hints and tips on how to keep your recorder in optimum condition. The book was created following the 'Looking after your Recorder' workshops run by Julie Dean over many years. The best care advice is now consolidated into this handy guide. First published in April 2022, the book was officially launched at the Easter Recorder Course, Derbyshire in April 2022.  

Sections covered include:

  • Common issues with recorders
  • Best care routines
  • Care of the joints
  • Oiling
  • Blowing in new recorder
  • Signs of voicing problems

And much more.

Following on from the highly popular 'Rounds for Recorders' workshop sessions held in person and online, The Rounds for Recorders volumes are now available. 

Rounds can be a useful tool for recorder players as warm up exercises, a simple resource for technical work, learning a new instrument or as performance pieces. Each Rounds for Recorders volume contains 20 rounds, ranging from short, simple pieces to more complex works. Each round is printed for soprano/tenor, alto and bass recorders. Researched to enhance player knowledge, these rounds provide musicians with plenty of fascinating material to both read and perform. Always interesting but reflecting past times, some of the rounds contained within are unsuitable for children.
