Sarah Whomersley


Sarah studied recorder and cello at the Royal College of Music which was a great place to explore early music and historical performance.  She then went on to Reading University, from which she graduated with a PGCE in secondary school music teaching. 

Since then Sarah has worked in London and Cornish secondary schools.  She currently works as the Head of Music in Cornwall’s largest secondary school arranging music and rehearsing 5 Choirs, Jazz Band, Recorder groups and a mixed Renaissance consort with cornamuse, loriman pipes, cornetts, strings, brass and recorders. All of which regularly perform in concerts and music festivals. 

Sarah teaches recorder to both children and adults, from beginners to Grade 8, including preparation for music college entrance exams.  She finds time to support local primary schools with recorders and choral singing as well. 

Sarah is also the MD of the Cornish branch of the SRP and enjoys ‘stretching’ the players with a variety of music – some of which has been written for her by a local Cornish composer and other pieces which she arranges herself.
