Gifted Young Players



At Victoria House in Lyme Regis we have a few simple objectives for our recorder courses: the very best tutors, relaxed and friendly accommodation, good food, good company and a great location.

We run recorder courses at all levels from beginners to Diploma for around 10 - 12 players with some of the best tutors from around the world.  We welcome many non-playing spouses and partners, who enjoy the surroundings and the warm and friendly atmosphere.

We have 23 courses booked for 2019, as well as a few private ones.  Have a look at the list of 2019 courses and we do hope you can find one that suits you.  If you want to guarantee a place on any of our courses, please go to our  How to Book page and fill in either the online form or the paper booking form and transfer / send a £90 deposit.

For the last 5 years we have held a course for Gifted Young Players up to the age of 18, led by Tom Beets of the Flanders Recorder Quartet.  To start with this was fully funded through our collaboration with the Walter Bergmann Fund, but WBF are not able to fully fund this in 2018, so we are looking for other ways to fund this fantastic opportunity for some of our best young players.  Any ideas or donations would be very gratefully received!  Please see our Gifted Young Players web page for more details.

A full day includes 4 one-and-a-half hour sessions.  The early part of each afternoon is free for relaxation, exploring Lyme Regis or informal recorder playing.  Please look at the 'more information' page for each course for details of specific start and finish times.
