About us

TREBLE MAKERS meet weekly to play recorder duets, trios and quartets. Playing in a consort with other musicians develops general musicianship and sight-reading skills in a way that is not possible at home. Important aspects of group performance include:

We provide expert tuition on descant, treble, tenor and bass for players at all levels. If the consort contains mixed ability players then simplified parts will be provided. Advanced musicians will be given solo opportunities.

Enjoy the pleasure of performing with others, trying different sized instruments, developing your own music skills and sharing beautiful, gentle music.

Children and adults of all ages are most welcome. If you have been learning for more than a year and can play the following music then please join us.

Rehearsals

Wednesdays in NSW school terms. 5:00pm – 6:00pm

The recorder is an inexpensive way to learn fundamental music skills that are directly applicable to other wind instruments. If you can play the recorder fluently then reading music for flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone or trumpet will be significantly easier. A good quality plastic recorder costs under $40.

Aulos 700 Series plastic recorders are recommended for beginners. The woodgrain recorders are painted in a Palisander colour. They have a less slippery feel but sound exactly the same as the less expensive brown models. You can purchase Aulos instruments from the links below.

If you already own a wooden recorder in good condition then please bring that along. If you are interested in purchasing your first wooden recorder then Kung Studio models are an excellent choice and available in most sizes.

Treble Makers are encouraged to spend some time each week mastering specific finger patterns that will improve sight-reading and general fluency.

Repertoire

Our music includes original compositions and arrangements tailored for the group. Music will vary in difficulty depending on the experience of the players. Typical examples of intermediate and advanced level concert items are shown below.

Individual tuition is also available at the Murray Conservatorium. Students can study solo recorder as an important instrument in its own right, performing beautiful music from Medieval times to the present day.

Here are two famous soloists who consider the recorder to be a serious instrument rather than a “plastic toy”.

A professional consort from the Netherlands — The Royal Wind Music.

Membership fees

Our fee is $85 per NSW school term. A reduced rate may apply for membership of multiple groups. Please contact the office on (02) 6041 4249.
