Marian teaches piano and recorder to adults in private lessons on request.

She also runs two adult recorder ensemble classes from her home near Pluckley, in Kent. Groups meet every Monday in term-time. They play  the complete range of recorders (descant, treble, tenor and bass) and from time to time give informal concerts for charity – occasionally in costume!
