Does the thought of playing in a one-to-a-part consort fill you with dread, or make you slightly weak at the knees? Do you already play but want to improve? Then this course is for you! We will work in small groups - trios, quartets, quintets - gaining experience under Alyson’s expert guidance. Various aspects will be covered, from choosing suitable music to taking charge of a session, getting the most out of the music, and any other questions that might surface. We will also have a few ensemble sessions for light relief! Participants should be competent players of at least two sizes of recorder. Please bring one piece which you know well, and be prepared to lead your group in playing it. There will be some music available to borrow. Alyson will provide a list of suggested music beforehand, but please feel free to bring your own favourites too!
