She will present a brief history of the recorder and introduce the various sizes of recorders with musical demonstrations and performance examples. Hein will make suggestions about starting recorder classes in your New Horizons program, and will conclude with thoughts on the benefits of adding early music to your life through playing the recorder and how you might discover your Most Pleasant Companion.
