Recorder Players’ Workshop V

1st December 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 3rd December 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Tutors: Ruth Burbidge & Terry Smurthwaite

Ensemble playing in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, this workshop is aimed at experienced adult players who ideally offer two instruments and are able to swap between them. The ability to  hold your own part in a group and good sight-reading skills are key. Expect a wide variety of interesting music and technique tuition, as required.

Ruth’s musical training includes three years at the Royal Academy of Music, and after several years’ teaching, a year at Trinity College of Music. Well-known for her accompanying and tutoring  skills, she is experienced in conducting small groups, chamber groups and orchestras throughout the UK.

Terry regularly conducts Society of Recorder Players’ meetings at Leeds, Bingley and York. He also conducts a group which meets weekly in Ilkley and has recently founded and conducts The Rombalds Recorders, a group set up to perform early music. In addition to bringing a wide range of music, he is able to offer advice on the techniques of ensemble playing and musicianship.
