Other information

Continued playing of a wide range of styles of multi-part recorder music, together with further development of recorder playing technique, knowledge of musical forms and styles, and knowledge of music theory. We will play in public when opportunities arise, but performance is not a priority.

REQUIREMENTS: Some experience of playing recorder is preferred. If not, experience on another musical instrument is a pre-requisite. Also the ability to sight read rhythm and pitch.

NOTE: The consort is enrolled as a member of the Victorian Recorder Guild.

TUTOR: Mary is a former teacher of piano and has a BA (Music) from another lifetime. She has been playing recorder for 13 years and has been a member of Ballarat U3A under June Johnstone. She was also in Quinta, a quintet formed from members of the U3A group. While in Ballarat she undertook groups of beginners. She is passionate about the recorder, its history and historic repertoire as well as a more modern application. She is a member of the Victorian Recorder Guild and regularly attends events.

No Class on 25 April

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
