No matter where you are in your recorder playing journey, Recorder Players West (RPW) is the right place for you!
Are you looking to improve your skills (fingers, tongue, breath, rhythm, etc.) or to have the chance to play with
others? Whatever your goal might be, our classes cater to different skill levels, ranging from pre-intermediate to
advanced, and you will surely fit right in.
This session for the first time RPW will be holding a blended on-line and in-person experience for the intermediate
and advanced classes! Yes, local people will be able to come to St. Bede’s Episcopal Church for in-person classes,
and on-line people will be able to join via Zoom! (The pre-intermediate class will remain on-line only.) St. Bede’s
Episcopal Church is at 3590 Grand View Blvd., West Los Angeles, two blocks west of the 405 freeway and one block
north of Venice Blvd. at the corner of Grand View and Charnock. There is plenty of free parking.
Our wonderful instructor is a professional recorder player (Inga Funck) – guaranteeing a gratifying musical
experience! She always manages to make classes fun while helping each student to grow as musician. She exposes
students to a rich body of repertoire from different centuries, styles, and countries. Inga has played with members of
the LA Phil at the Disney Hall and is an experienced teacher. Outside of Recorder Players West, she is offering
private lessons as well as other classes independent of RPW.
Schedule and cost: Newcomers who have not yet been to an RPW class with Inga will be given one free class
before they have to decide whether or not to join. Please note that the class times have changed from last semester.
Advanced Class Wednesdays, 2:00 to 3:30 pm PDT (class dates: October 12, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16,
30, and December 7) at St. Bede’s or on-line
The tuition is $180 for the intermediate and advanced classes (or $157.50 if you
are brand-new to Recorder Players West and are making use of the first free class).
