Baroque Classes at Prep

Aldo Abreu, Instructor

To schedule a placement for Baroque classes, please contact the Prep office.

Recorder for Beginners

In this class students start learning soprano recorder. Along with the technical development, students also learn to play by ear and to read at the same time. 

Recorder for Woodwind Players

This class is for students who already play another woodwind or brass instrument and would like to learn recorder. Since students already have some wind and finger control, they can learn the basics quickly and also do some recorder ensemble music. The class will cover soprano, alto, tenor, and bass recorders.

Renaissance & Baroque Improvisation and Ornamentation

This class is for students to learn principles of ornamentation and improvisation between 1500 and 1750. It is open to all instruments. Students must have previous experience playing on their instrument.
