Course outline

What is the course about?

For players who are already experienced in recorder ensemble playing, this course looks at developing smaller consort playing skills in Renaissance, Baroque and Contemporary music. This takes place within a friendly group.

What topics will we cover?

-Improving technical fluency and ensemble skills related directly to Renaissance consort
-Becoming comfortable with playing different instruments of the recorder family
- Tuning and transposition, stylistic awareness
-Playing a range of repertoire for smaller consort.

By the end of this course you should be able to:

- be confident tackling more complex repertoire in a consort setting
- demonstrate an improved level of technical ability on the recorder.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

The course is aimed at those who already have experience of recorder ensemble playing, but who are interested
in exploring more complex repertoire in a smaller group. You will need to follow written and verbal instructions in English and engage in class discussions.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Practical work, playing consorts and listening. Tuning exercises (scales and chords, etc.). Three to six part consort and ensemble repertoire. Sight reading and learning pieces to perform. Group, small group and individual work. Group discussion. Demonstrations by the tutor.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

You will need to bring a recorder. Exercises and teaching material will be provided. You can borrow, and
may wish to buy, the solo or consort music being studied. A good book to buy is the Schott Recorder Consort Anthology vol 3 , Italian Music (Schott, ED 12389).

Do I need to have an interview before I can enrol?

No.

What feedback will I get?

You will receive regular feedback from your tutor throughout the course, as and when appropriate. At the end of the course you and your tutor are asked to assess the progress you have made.

How will I be able to give my views on the course?

Please complete the evaluation form at the end of your course. These are monitored and help us to continually improve our courses.

How do I find out if I can get some support for my learning?

You may be interested in: education and careers advice; financial and childcare support; disability support; support for Deaf and hearing-impaired students; dyslexia support; English and maths support; counselling, and library services (supported learning centre).
