The recorder often used in schools is the perfect size for children's hands, making it easy to excel at quickly.

At Allegro we can provide the exact knowledge and support your child needs to succeed in their musical journey at school and beyond!


Ease and Fun!


Allegro has been teaching music for almost four decades, and the recorder is a stapled favorite. The recorder is an instrument that can be enjoyed by musicians of all ages and skill levels. Not only is this instrument able to easily offer students a secure foundation of musical knowledge, but it also gives students a broad collection of melodies to play from. This instrument’s diversity is perhaps what attracts so many musicians to it. It is an instrument that can follow a musician as they develop along their musical journey in all areas.

Is the recorder just a kid's instrument? 


Although the recorder is great for beginners, it is widely played by seasoned professionals and has a highly esteemed history in music going back to the middle ages. Once the basics of the recorder are achieved, students can choose to continue the broad and diverse path of further excelling at the recorder and its variations or carry on in other instruments using the recorder as a base to build from.

Health Benefits

The recorder is a perfect instrument when working on breath control much like singing as well as improving and solidifying motor and coordination skills.
