MERA Recorder Classes
The MERA Recorder Consort is an ongoing, flexible group of players in its 6th year. We meet for two to 4 of classes a year, playing intermediate level music in 2-4 parts. We play for our own enjoyment, but sometimes we play for a MERA event or for our own party.
If you already read music and play the recorder or other wind instrument, you might want to play with this group of enthusiastic amateur players, with teacher Helen Mogford to provide guidance and music. Seasonal sessions last 6-10 weeks, with a 75 minute class on Friday mornings. In warm weather, we often play outside. We have the capability to provide this class on ZOOM for those not able to play live with us.
The cost of group recorder lessons varies according to the number in the class, but generally ranges between $80 and $120 for ten weeks, 20% more if you are not a MERA member. Fall of 2021 there is one 8 week session. Members’ cost is $80, or $12 drop in. Non members’ cost is $95 for 8 weeks and $14 for occasional drop in. I expect we will have a winter session and a spring session in 2022. Sometimes, we play more informally in the summer.
