Jean-François Beaudin is a player and maker of early flutes and recorders who has gained an international reputation through his drawings of original instruments and his reproductions of them. He has played the recorder since he was 9 and the flute since he was 20, completed a degree at the University of Montréal (Quebec) in 1978, and from 1978 to 1980 studied the recorder with Michael Barker and Ricardo Kanji, and traverso with Bart Küyken at The Hague Conservatory (Netherlands).
In order to pursue his studies of the music of Hotteterre and composers of his time, Jean-François made a reconstruction of an alto recorder by Dupuis. This led to further reproductions after originals by Wijne Stanesby Jnr, Bressan, Bizey and Ganassi. During his time in Holland, Jean-François met and studied with the Australian recorder maker Fred Morgan and continued his work with him in Daylesford, Victoria during 1986. More recent collaborations have been with Olivier Cottet and Marc Ecochard, and Philippe Bolton in the south of France. He is currently working towards a reconstruction of a tenor recorder by Stanesby Jr.
