Silver Strings – it’s never too late to learn!
“Joining Silver Strings has changed my life, now making music is part of my everyday and I’m loving it!”
FREE TRIAL DAY! Come and try us out! No experience necessary.
Silver Strings is a music session for adults who’ve always wanted to play a stringed instrument. At Silver Strings, we warm up gently and play as part of a larger group to make a wide variety of music together. Everyone is welcome, regardless of previous experience – no music reading is necessary, and everyone can choose the material we play.
Learning an instrument in a group keeps our minds active and our fingers supple – and it’s a lot of fun! Participants say: I get such a sense of achievement (SW), My hands are now more agile (DP), Every week is a highlight! (RW).
We even provide the instruments: choose violin, viola or cello – or try all three! Come and join us on the first Tuesday of the month for a free trial at our Open Session.
The sessions are facilitated by professional cellist, CTLLS-qualified and Goldsmiths-trained music leader Bela Emerson.
