Latest news from my workshop



  • Only one more recorder making course to go in 2018, December 17-22 (October’s course is booked out). New data for 2019 will be announced shortly.
  • I’m now working on a baroque tenor recorder in A:440 Hz. It will most likely be an instrument without keys, as many of you requested. Follow my website or send me an email if you’re interested!



The first recorder making course was a great succes! Hard work, a lot to learn and two happy students with a nice new alto recorder.

This is what the students say:

Jacqueline Sorel’s recorder building course was a very special way for me to dig deeper into this instrument. Under the expert and enthusiastic leadership of Jacqueline I was initiated in all steps of the construction, from woodturning to voicing and tuning. A guaranteed way to get to know all the ‘angles and holes’ of this instrument is to build one yourself. Together with a fellow student a great week that ended with a high quality recorder. Recommended!” E. van Dijk.

“Under expert guidance I spent a week making an alto recorder. Particularly to be able to follow the whole process of the making and especially to be allowed to do it yourself.
In a pleasant atmosphere we have been working for six days and the result is great !!
