About the course

This course is designed for players who can already read music at a basic level and have started to play the recorder. With a little practice, you should be able to play a straightforward piece from beginning to end on your own. You should know the fingering for F sharp, C sharp and B flat. You should be interested in learning to play another size of recorder, or have already started to do so. Please contact us if you are unsure about whether the course will be suitable.

The objective is to have fun exploring a variety of music in a friendly, sympathetic and encouraging atmosphere.

The timetable is flexible and will vary according to the needs and wishes of those attending, although 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 with afternoon tea at 4.00pm on Friday and finishes with lunch on Monday.
