Lizzie Knatt

Lizzie is a recent graduate of the University of Birmingham, where she studied the recorder with Annabel Knight and Chris Orton and was awarded the Arnold Goldsborough Memorial Prize for Early Music. She is now continuing her studies at the Royal Academy of Music with Anna Stegmann. Lizzie holds an LRSM award in recorder performance from the Associated Board.

The recorder has given Lizzie the opportunity to travel across the UK, Europe and further afield – most recently to Israel, where she was a semi-finalist in the Tel Aviv Recorder Festival in February 2020. Lizzie enjoys exploring contemporary music and collaborating with composers, and has recently premiered new works for recorder for The Arc Project and the University of Birmingham Summer Festival of Music. Lizzie is passionate about music education and has previously worked as a student tutor on the Recorder Summer School, assisted with Musicate! Music Explorers Scheme events in Gloucestershire and demonstrations run by the York Music Education Group, and led recorder workshops in primary schools in Hampshire.
