Tom Beets 

As a member of both established and upcoming performing groups, and as a teacher at venues across the world, Tom Beets is one of the most talented and exciting young recorder players of our time.

Tom is a member of The Flanders Recorder Quartet, widely acknowledged as one of the leading recorder groups in the world. With them he has played all over the world, in some of the most prestigious venues and festivals, including the Miller Theater in New York, the Opera City Hall in Tokyo, and the Orchesterhaus in Salzburg. (see Flanders Recorder Quartet for more information.)

Tom is also a member of Sarada, the young prizewinning ensemble for early renaissance music, whose objective is to bring a fresh interpretation to the music of that time, while respecting its origins.


We have raised funding to cover the direct costs and are providing the facilities free of charge, so there is no charge for participants.  A £75 deposit is payable on booking, but this will be refunded at the course.

If you are able to make a contribution towards our costs this will support future courses.

All students can be accommodated in their own room or sharing with a friend. Most rooms are en-suite.
