Kom meedoen in groot ensemble
At the moment I coach several ensembles that get together on a regular basis. Other pupils play together from time to time in different combinations. New ensembles are welcome. Ensembles usually make use of the so-called ‘strippenkaart’, and their members between them pay for the time I spend coaching the group.
Group lessons are possible if more or less homogeneous groups can be formed.
Large recorder ensemble
The recorder ensemble will enter its 17th year in September. It consists of some 20 players, but as far as I’m concerned there is plenty of room for more. We have two great basses and two contras at our disposal now. The ensemble rehearses once a month on Tuesday evening from 19.45 to 21.45. Anyone who has had recorder lessons for a few years or more can join the group. The sound of a large recorder ensemble is wonderful, and players of different levels enjoy playing together. At present, the level ranges roughly from grade 3/4 to grade 7/8. The atmosphere is very friendly, and everyone can speak English! If you are interested, you are more than welcome to join us for a trial session, just to see what it is like. The provisional (but likely) dates for 2022 - 2023 are below.
As from September we will rehearse again in
Sporthal de Blinkerd
