Brian  Bonsor

Born: August 21st, 1926
Died: February 22nd, 2011
Country of origin: United Kingdom
A recorder enthusiast for over 40 years, Brian Bonsor has taught in primary and secondary schools, in further education classes and summer courses.
He is a Musical Adviser of the British Society of Recorder Players, a director of, and tutor at, the renowned 'Recorder in Education' Summer School and founder, and for many years director, of the National Recorder School of Scotland.
His first recorder pieces, published in 1959, were an instant success and, like their successors, have given enormous pleasure to players of all ages all over the world. More recently his "Enjoy the Recorder", a series of tutors crystallizing his wide teaching experience, has won wide acclaim, quickly establishing itself as a major force in an over-populated field.
In 1983, at his own request, he retired early from his post as Regional Adviser in Music in the Scottish Borders to devote himself more fully to teaching, conducting and writingfor the recorder and has since been much in demand to lead teachers' and other courses at home and abroad.
The astonishing popularity of his published works derives from his declared aim to provide attractive and effective concert pieces at all technical levels, always with interesting and tuneful parts which will extend player's technique and musicianship. The reviews quoted clearly show the measure of his success.
