Enjoy a musical weekend in beautiful Santa Barbara! Enjoy making music and getting together with a great group of people.
Tish and Frances are enthusiastic and inspiring leaders, imparting valuable information all while leading players through exquisite music of past centuries. Improve your skills, gain understanding of earlier styles of music, and immerse yourself in group playing with like-minded players.
Classes will include a morning technique warm-up, followed by sessions focusing on composers from the 14th century to the 18th centuries. Music skills classes will also be included.
We are excited to welcome Tish Berlin and Frances Blaker back to Santa Barbara to lead this workshop. They will also be offering private lessons on Friday afternoon, April 5. Don’t miss this opportunity to work with two of the best-known recorder teachers in the U.S.

They play in the recorder duo Tibia and are also members of the Farallon Recorder Quartet, Calextone, and Ensemble Vermillian. Frances is the author of Opening Measures: a Compendium of Practice Techniques, which includes articles she has published in the ARS magazine over the last 20 years.
