Exeter Young Strings is a music organisation for children and teenagers aged 4 – 19 dedicated to the promotion of string playing in small chamber groups and quartets. We are also very keen for young pianists to join us!

“We are so glad to have discovered the “Mini Music Makers“. My only regret is that I was never taught music in this way when I learnt as a child. I feel these classes offer the basis to true musicianship in the most natural and fun way. My daughter absolutely loves it, and as a parent it is exciting to watch her develop in her love of music. ”  A parents comments.

“was very impressed with the Exeter Young Strings 10th anniversary concert. It’s amazing to see the progression from fidgety sol fa signing (and using tiny violins as light sabres) to a really accomplished string quartet that made tears of pleasure come to my eyes.” Natalie Ballantyne
