Unfortunately, due to Cove-19 restrictions, this course cannot take place in the usual way (though we expect to run the course in 2022), but we are arranging a Virtual Online Course.
With the experience we have gained from organising our RfA zoom courses over the last few months we have decided to put together this ‘virtual’ Easter Recorder Course. Although our courses, until now, have been solely for Recorders-for-All members we are opening this up to any recorder player who is missing the opportunity to play with others. Ok, so we can’t play together in ensembles or orchestras but there are many things we CAN do on zoom.
During these six days we will give you the opportunity to try many of the things which arguably work better online. Take risks – try out new fingerings or ornaments; go for those high notes; play all the parts, instead of just the tenor 2 line (!), and get to know the whole piece; play a sonata with keyboard; experience playing a 1:1 duet with a tutor… Rather than losing yourself in a large group of players, improve your playing and your confidence from the privacy of your own home with no risk of feeling foolish or embarrassed. A flyer for this virtual event is available here
, which you can pass on to other recorder players.
The timetable, brochure and application form will be available here at the end of February. You can sign up for individual days or all 6 days. All you need is a reasonable internet connection and a computer, laptop or tablet. You will receive detailed instructions on how to use zoom.
