Students will need to purchase a copy of the "Sweet Pipes" Recorder book (links below) for the class.

Do you need to purchase an alto recorder? You cannot go wrong with the best plastic recorders on the market. Yamaha, Aulos, and Zen-On all make fine sounding and in-tune plastic recorders. Consider purchasing an instrument from one of our business partners (the names in quotes below cite the original 18th c. recorder makers from which the plastic models are modeled):
