The Strings Workshops are an opportunity for those learning Strings Instruments to play with others in an ensemble for the first time. Beginners are welcome (most players there have been playing less than two years) but some understanding of reading notation is necessary. The simplest parts only involve knowing how to read a few notes however and are all in the first finger pattern so easy to play. We usually have a warm up and introducing game without instruments to start where we might learn any interesting rhythms we need to know away from the page before we even look at a note or tune up. The point is to end the session having had fun making music well together so the repertoire is easy and achievable. Anyone who has been learning for a term would benefit from attending.
There is no minimum grade or ages applicable, just come along and join in the fun!
