November 19, 2013- update and re-threading

November 19, 2013

We haven’t been very good at posting on this blog! It’s been a good year – a Tibia Adventures in Music workshop in Italy with us and Shira Kammen.  We have been going to Poggio alle Ville north of Florence for several years. We love it there and Raffaele Edlmann and his family are wonderful hosts. Two Next Level Recorder Retreats – one in Carmel Valley CA in February and one at Wildacres Retreat in Little Switzerland, NC.  Both beautiful places that we’re looking forward to being at again in 2014.

A friend just asked how to get her recorder joints re-corked.  We don’t re-cork instruments, we use thread.  Here’s a link to Philippe Bolton’s page, with a nice description of re-threading – just scroll down until you find it. Click here.  If you have Ken Wollitz’s The Recorder Book, you will find another good description of re-threading on page 171.
