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 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 15 courses booked so far for 2021. We may well add more, or have to cancel some, depending on Covid! Have a look at the list of 2021 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.

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.

Since 2014 we have held a course for Gifted Young Players up to the age of 19, led by Tom Beets of the Flanders Recorder Quartet. Unfortunately this course will not be run in 2021, but we hope it will return in future years. This is fully funded by Recorder Courses Lyme and our collaboration with the Walter Bergmann Fund, as well as donations from our course participants. Donations to support this are very welcome; please see our Gifted Young Players web page for more details.
