Bruce Larkin

Bruce holds an M.F.A. in Early Music Performance from Sarah Lawrence College and a Bachelor’s in Music History/Musicology from the University of Michigan. Continued studies with Eva Legêne focused on recorder pedagogy and technique.  A former orchestral percussionist, he has been a teacher and performer for more than four decades. He has taught at Amherst Early Music, Hudson Guild, and many American Recorder Society (ARS) chapter workshops. He is Music Director of the Eastern Connecticut Chapter of the ARS and has served chapters in New York and North Carolina. He directs the Richmond Consort of Recorders and sings with the New Haven Chorale and Center Church choir. “My extended family – young and old – played recorders when I was a child, and imparted a spirit of musical enjoyment that inspires my teaching and playing today. The recorder is a beautiful instrument for making music together, with sensitivity and understanding and expression.”
