Annette Bauer is a recorder player and multi-instrumentalist. Born and raised in Germany, she holds a diploma in medieval and Renaissance music from the Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland (2001), and an MA in music from the University of California in Santa Cruz (2004). From 2001-2012 she called the San Francisco Bay area her home. There, she studied North Indian classical music on sarode, a 24-stringed lute, with her teacher Ali Akbar Khan, and worked as a freelance musician with early music groups all over the United States, including Piffaro, Texas Early Music Project, Magnificat, Canconier, Les Graces, Farallon Recorder Quartet, and The Lost Mode. From 2012-2020, she spent eight years touring the world as a musician for the Cirque du Soleil's show Totem. Since 2020, Annette is now making a new home with her family in Montréal. She is currently sharing her love of music by offering online instruction to students of all ages, including an ongoing class on 15th and 16th-century mensural notation through Amherst Early Music.
