Senior String Course
For grades 6-8+, runs for 10 weeks per term on a Monday evening at 11a Westgate Street, between 5.30 and 7.30pm with some additional concert dates and occasional extra workshop opportunities.
The cost and timing of this course has been reduced to help make it more affordable in the present financial climate. New students may apply at any time of the year. The course is designed for students to realise their maximum potential and many previous students have gone on to top level national music colleges or universities - some eventually becoming professional musicians and highly successful teachers.
