A question [Jan. 17th, 2009|09:22 pm]



I'm not a newbie to the recorder world -- there's been at least one in my house for as long as I can remember. However, I'm considering finally learning how to play, since my father isn't interested in his any more, and I hate to see musical instruments that have been in the family for a while just abandoned...(yes, I also have a house full of pets!)

My question is: how "experienced" a player were you when you started playing baroque and/or renaissance music? Eventually I am going to graduate my middle-aged self from college in May, and am considering finally getting actively involved in the SCA. Since my primary instrument (anglo concertina) did not exist until 1830, so I was considering something a little more "period."

And there just happen to be all these soprano and alto recorders in need of a good home...

I went straight from The Recorder Guide to Handel sonatas (on alto) and the Van Eyke books (on soprano). With Van Eyke, they are themes and variations, so you can just do the theme and first variation if the later variations are hard...
