String Group

Principal Tutor: Gillian Tarlton


(violins, violas, ‘cellos and double basses)

“Such a friendly, social course and great to make music together.”
– 2018 course member

Ideal for those players who wish to gain experience of playing in a group, without the  pressure of being in a full orchestra. It can provide valuable intermediate experience for those who aim to progress into a group such as the Sinfonietta in time, whilst also appealing to those who simply wish to develop their skills in the company of their peers.

The aims are to explore repertoire, achieve quality of tone and tuning, and to develop ensemble skills. The programme will be devised by the tutor to suit the
abilities of the course members.

The course tutor will be joined occasionally by other string tutors who will provide specialist coaching sessions. The atmosphere will be supportive and encouraging, and there will be the option to perform to a friendly and sympathetic audience during the week if the group so wishes.
