Recorder Maintenance Presentation

Recorder Maintenance Presentation

This presentation is aimed at all levels from amateur or student players to teachers and performers. It covers and an introduction to what is meant by recorder 'voicing'. It aims to demonstrate how sensitive the windway area is and how to identify changes in the sound that could be a result of windway changes.

The workshop will use a projector with diagrams, photos and information shown. There will also be a practical demonstration of the issues by making voicing adjustments to a recorder.

As there is a practical demonstration it is better the audience numbers are small (perhaps less than 30) to allow people to sit close enough to hear the changes in sound.
