Weekly Beginner Instrumental Classes

Weekly Beginner Instrumental Classes

Through consultation and feedback from participants and parents, we are delighted to have a new string to our bow, the Weekly Beginner Instrumental Classes!

Offering engaging and inclusive classes tailored specifically for total beginners with the option of learning fiddle, guitar, and singing. These classes provide an exciting opportunity for participants to start on their musical journey, with absolutely no experience required, and discover the joy of learning and playing music!

Our experienced tutors are dedicated to fostering a supportive learning environment, ensuring that each participant has a solid foundation in the basics of their chosen instrument. Each participant can enjoy two terms of tuition, first in level 0 and then level 1, allowing for a more in-depth exploration of the instrument, the development of essential playing skills and the confidence to express themselves creatively through music.
