Thread Name: Who influenced you to become a musician
Subject: RE: Who influenced you to become a musician
I don't think any recording has influenced me to become a musician but they have influenced my musical tastes.

The people who have really influenced me as a musician are the various people who have taught me over the years. The teacher in my final year at primary school who first taught me recorder, the tutors at a Local College where I took a music course as an adult having rediscovered the recorder when my daughters started learning it at school. The Musical director of our local recorder society who taught a recorder class at the college. The various tutors at the Folkworks Caedmon Folk classes in Gateshead. Also several others at weekend and day workshops I have been to from time to time.

The feature all have shared is that they have encouraged my musical development and have never put me down, so I always felt encouraged to keep going.
