Recorder - Singing Bird

Hi! I’m Letizia and I’m a Rotterdam based enthusiastic recorder player and teacher. Playing the Recorder is a marvelous start to the world of the music! The perfect instrument because of it’s quick response and it’s corresponding ability to produce a wide variety of articulations and sounds!

Difficult to learn?

You will learn to play the recorder in the most natural way. How? Combining playing and singing to find the inner voice through the recorder. Of course you’ll learn to read notes, a relaxed posture, a natural and focussed breathing, basic rhythm and some music theory. Let’s play and sing together!

Beginner to Advanced

Whether you're a beginning, intermediate or advanced recorder student, my private lessons will be supportive, instructive and motivating! Lessons can be held in English and Italiano!

Classical to Pop!

The recorder invites you to play many styles of music: baroque, classical, pop and folk-songs! We'll focus on articulation, phrasing, intonation, ornamentations and analysis of styles. Let’s enjoy playing duets! Want to try? Book a trial lesson!

Beginners – All Ages

My recorder lessons are both for children as well as adults. Children can start at the age of 5. Enjoy the best way to develop your skills: In a personalised process focussed on your individual needs! After a few lessons you will be playing some easy tunes!

Advanced Players

Looking to learn more about German, Italian and French Baroque? Dive into Empfindsamkeit and Affektlehre?  Let’s explore the sources, discover Telemann, Bach & Sons, Purcell, Hotteterre or Vivaldi and learn about ornamentation, trills, phrasing, timing, historical context.

All Types

As you may know, there are four types of recorders; soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Which one do you want to learn?

Time Management

Struggling with your practising because of no time? Want to focus on specific fundamentals? I experienced various methods between the italian, german, french and american schools that made me able to give you a personal study plan specific for your daily life.
