The Pizzicato Players

For beginner orchestral string players aged between 5 – 8.

Perhaps the greatest joy of learning an instrument, at all stages, is the ability to play together with others. We encourage even at very beginner levels that students join in one of our small ensembles.

This group provides a great introduction to ensemble playing including plenty of musicianship training and fun games and exercises using the Jolly Music programme. The year starts with Jolly Music 1 ( the second level in the series) The group is carefully assessed and monitored so that instrumental playing is introduced as and when the members of the group are ready so as to support and not disrupt learning done in individual instrumental lessons.
