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!”
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.
