Our new Junior String Ensemble were looking and sounding great last weekend at their first rehearsal! Led by tutor Emma Tomlinson, Junior Strings aims to provide a fun, first experience of ensemble playing for young string players.  Being part of an ensemble helps to develop more than just children’s  playing. It develops their ability to hear and understand how different musical parts come together cohesively to create a piece of music. It develops their understanding of melody and harmony, musical form and structure. It improves musical and mental stamina, focus and listening but most importantly, it is great fun! New friendships are formed as children learn and play together.

We are looking forward to our next rehearsal already!
