She has established a successful performing and teaching career as a recorder player and historical flautist, which has taken her across the UK, Europe and America. She has given recitals notably with Passacaglia, and the recorder quintet Fontanella.
Annabel enjoys teaching at all levels and has been a syllabus consultant for both the ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall examinations boards.
She is the founder and director of the popular Woodhouse Recorder Week and is currently head of recorder at Birmingham Conservatoire.
Annabel has a passion for teaching – and in particular, educating folks about the recorder and has been teaching recorder and flute for over twenty years, in every setting from the state sector classroom and music service, through private and independent schools, to the aspiring young Conservatoire graduate. The emphasis in all her teaching is on personal attainment, developing confidence and having fun.
