We are very excited to offer this innovative new approach to
online music instruction! Our class blends group performance
with individualized feedback and practice tools to give your

Between our weekly group ensemble sessions, students are
encouraged to exercise their creativity by building mixes on
their own using the skills we learn in class. These mixes may
be shared with their teachers to receive feedback and guidance
for improving musicianship.
Recorder is an instrument with centuries of history that's
played by professional musicians around the world. But its
simplicity also makes it perfect for helping children get
creative with music from the start. And the techniques children
develop translate directly for whatever paths their musical
journeys eventually lead.

Start your own class
If you're a music teacher interested
in starting your own online ensemble, we'd love to help you get
started! Teaching ensembles over the internet has traditionally
been a challenge, but we have a vision for it that we feel can
make online instruction a blast for teachers and students alike.
Online teaching will never be exactly the same as teaching in
person. So rather than try to duplicate that experience, we
set out to create something that's unique and leverages the
unique possibilities that technology and remote participation
offer. It's a different experience that offers new ways for
participants to engage and be creative. We'd love to give you a
personal demo to show the possibilities and the new audiences you
can reach, so please send us an email!
