Hi! I'm Sarah, and I'm a recorder player. I started my youtube channel Team Recorder to provide an online haven for other recorder players, a place where we can share knowledge and our passion for the instrument and its music. A new video is posted every week.

And yep, you read that right - I am a professional recorder player! I studied classical music at the Birmingham Conservatoire in the UK and Amsterdam Conservatory in the Netherlands, getting bachelor and masters degrees there. Now I make my living as a freelance musician - performing concerts, touring with my ensembles and projects, teaching music, giving workshops and masterclasses, writing about music... and of course, making youtube videos!

The recorder is an amazing instrument - it's incredibly versatile, has ceeeeenturies of great repertoire, and today there are thousands of people playing it at a very hgh standard all over the world.
However, there's not that much high-level information about the instrument available online, especially not on youtube. I thought - why should this information be kept hidden behind the walls of a conservatory? This was part of what spurred me on to create Team Recorder. Plus the fact that making videos is very fun ;)

What does Team Recorder create exactly? Online tutorials, from basic techniques to professional level subjct matter. Playalong videos that you can even use for performances. Information videos on genres of music, pieces, instruments... Interviews with other pro recorder players. Recommendations and reviews on recorders and music. Fun and comedy videos about life as a musician... or how to build bagpipes!?

Why Patreon? By supporting Team Recorder on Patreon, you are:
- enabling me to invest in proper camera, lighting, and editing equipment, which brings YOU a good quality video!
- I am saving up for a good microphone - of course, the music is the most important part!
- allowing me to travel to and showcase other musicians, boosting the music scene as a whole
- helping me spend more time researching, making and editing these videos around all of my other work
- supporting the recorder, the best instrument in the world ;) (ahem)

And most importantly - THANK YOU for being a part of the Team Recorder community, and for supporting it through Patreon!
