Recorder Summer School

Dates for 2015: Saturday, August 1st - August 8th

Chair: Helen Hooker

Administrator: Josée Beeson

Welcome to the Recorder Summer School.

This course is designed for recorder players of all standards, from near beginners to advanced students. All students are expected to be familiar with both C and F instruments. It began life as the Recorder in Education Summer School in 1948 and after many happy years in Bretton Hall, we now hold the course at Bishop Burton College, near Beverley. This has turned out to be a very successful venue since we visited it for the first time in 2007.

It is a large course, with up to 130 students and 9 tutors and the atmosphere is always friendly and encouraging. Although many of the players are from the UK, in recent years we welcomed players from America, Germany, Hong Kong, Norway, The Netherlands, Spain and Israel.

We hope that you will enjoy finding out more about the course by browsing these website pages. At the moment, detailed information about the 2015 edition is not yet available. Please have a look at the Brochure from edition 2014 to get an idea of how the course works.
