Thrilling Trilling: NAVRS Workshop w/ Anne Timberlake

Thrilling Trilling North American Virtual Recorder Society Workshop with Anne Timberlake

Sunday, March 19 at 7:30PM, ET

Ornamentation is the practice of adding to, or changing, or both, what’s on the page– is an integral part of playing music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras. Trilling is essential to recorder playing, but there’s so much more to it than simply wiggling your fingers. Musician and teacher, Anne Timberlake, will review the function and execution of this essential grace, addressing important questions such as: How do I know when to trill? When should I start and stop?

Anne Timberlake has appeared across the United States performing repertoire from Bach to 21st century premieres. She holds degrees in recorder performance from Oberlin Conservatory, where she studied with Alison Melville, and Indiana University, where she studied with Eva Legene and won the 2007 Early Music Institute Concerto Competition. Critics have praised her “fine technique and stylishness,” “unexpectedly rich lyricism” (Letter V), and “dazzling playing” (Chicago Classical Review).

The North American Virtual Recorder Society (NAVRS), a chapter of the American Recorder Society, is an online community of recorder players.  NAVRS welcomes all experience levels from emerging players to professional.  Its goal is simple – and that is to promote the recorder and to provide a safe, inclusive space for playing and having fun.  NAVRS hosts monthly playing meetings and workshops with leading recorder teachers. Members can participate in the comfort of their home and have the added convenience of the class recording for an extra three weeks, before it expires.

The Thrilling Trilling Workshop is $20 for NAVRS members. Become a member today. Get details here:
