About the course

This is an exceptional opportunity for tuition in a very small group by one of the leading recorder players and tutors of our time.  Players are expected to be very good sight readers and to be willing and able to play all sizes of recorder down to great bass or contra.

The timetable is flexible and will vary according to the needs and wishes of those attending; there are usually 4 one-and-a-half hour sessions each full day.  The early part of each afternoon is free for relaxation, exploring Lyme Regis or informal recorder playing.

The course starts at 2.30pm on Monday 13th November and will finish at 11.30am on Friday 17th November.  Off road car parking is available from Monday morning if you want to arrive early and explore Lyme.


Prices are as follows:

Single occupancy    £480

2 players, sharing    £375 each

Couple sharing, one playing    £615

A £75 deposit is required per person on booking, with the balance to be paid at least a month before the course.
