Second Level Beginners' Class with Lisette Kielson (soprano/tenor recorder)
2/27/2021 - 3/20/2021
If you’ve taken one of ARS Online Beginners’ Courses for the soprano or tenor recorder, then you are ready for Level 2! If you didn’t master everything the first time around there will be plenty of review! In this second-level 4-part course, professional recorder player and teacher Lisette Kielson will guide you in continued work on recorder technique and musical expression, solidifying varying time signatures and rhythmic patterns, getting a good (relaxed!) grip on notes and fingerings, and continuing the quest for beautiful tone and articulation.
This class is available at no charge to ARS members, only. When registering, use the email address associated with your ARS membership. If you are not an ARS member, you may click HERE to join. There will be approximately 10 "Second Level" classes on a variety of topics offered from January through May, 2021. Teachers are paid thanks to donations to the Recorder Artist Relief Fund.
