Recorder Summer School – August 2017

1 - 7 August 2017


Isabelle Zermatten (L) with Course director, Jane Ebel

Isabelle has lived and worked in Chamonix for many years, as an inspirational recorder teacher, head of music at the Ecole de Musique in Chamonix, director or a women’s a capella choir and directors of numerous baroque ensembles.  She works with all age groups and has a particular sympathy for working with amateur adults.

The request this year has been for a French-language course for recorder players who are approximately grade V and above; but who can sight read.

Isabelle will select appropriate music and send this to the players 2 months before the start of the course.  There is also the opportunity to bring your own pieces to perform individually or in groups as part of the daily masterclass (optional!).
There will also be a Daily Clinic to which you can bring queries about style, technique and repertoire – of any period, as well as an opportunity to play with a harpsichord accompanist.
