Playing the Recorder

2 pm - 4.00 pm Thursdays in the upstairs room of Buxton Methodist Church
Group Co-ordinator : This post is vacant at the moment. Please contact the Group leader liaison Andrew Matthews via the contact page if you are interested to take on this role.

The group has been running now for more than eighteen years. At first most members played only descant recorders but over the years we have developed and now play sopranino, descant, treble, tenor, bass and great bass recorders. Music played varies from classical to folk music and even some jazzy numbers.

About once a month we are very lucky to have tuition from Janice Ormerod which she does on a voluntary basis.She helps us to improve our playing ability and technique.She is highly qualified and well known in the world of recorder players.

Some of us have got involved with the Manchester/Sheffield and Macclesfield SRP groups and enjoy attending their playdays.

We would love to have new people come to join us. Many people have played a recorder in the past - not always with happy memories - but we get so much pleasure now from making music together, perhaps you would, too? U

Please contact the group leader liaison Andrew Matthews via the contact page if you are interested in joining this group.
