The lute is a soft, intimate instrument with a lovely voice. It requires your complete attention when playing and as such, it’s an ideal vehicle to give yourself some quiet time and space. Pick up the lute and escape from life’s everyday work and worries.
You can either learn the Renaissance lute - music up to 1620 or the Baroque Lute for the music of JS Bach, Weiss up to 1800.
I have several hire lutes and can also advise on the purchase of a lute. There is a lute maker in Tasmania, several lute makers in Australia and also worldwide buying options.
