Are you a soprano recorder player who is secretly longing for the lower sound of the Alto? Have you thought about transitioning from Soprano to Alto but are really nervous about learning f-fingerings? If you are planning on playing with other musicians, sooner or later you will be asked  to play recorders other than the soprano.

This 10-week class introduces f-fingerings step-by-step in manageable increments.  You will also refine your breathing, work on your tonguing and articulation, and strengthen your rhythmical skills.  Not to mention all the fun you will have with the vast repertoire written for Alto!

Each class is one hour long. Register by sending an email to funck.inga@gmail.com.  $ 150 per class.  Payments are made directly to Inga Funck, either via check, PayPal or Zelle.

Rhythm is fundamental to your musicianship.  If you are struggling with rhythms even just a little, taking the time to isolate rhythm as a practice will benefit you tremendously.
Learn to maintain a steady beat and to identify when you are off.  Develop a keen sense for even the most complicated syncopated rhythms.  After this 10-week class, your rhythm will be rock solid, despite being nervous about sight-reading a new complex piece or playing in front of an audience.

Each class is one hour long. Register by sending an email to funck.inga@gmail.com.  $ 150 per class.  Payments are made directly to Inga Funck, either via check, PayPal or Zelle.

Want to become an asset to any recorder ensemble by being able to play the bass recorder?  Or perhaps you have just recently bought a bass recorder and want to become proficient at reading the bass clef?  OR you fell in love with the lower sound of the bass instruments?  Sign up for this class if this describes you.

Each class is one hour long. Register by sending an email to funck.inga@gmail.com.  $ 150 per class.  Payments are made directly to Inga Funck, either via check, PayPal or Zelle.
