Play! (6-9 yrs)

This is a year-long course taught by a range of our outstanding tutors, all of whom are very experienced teachers and performers.

Play! is the perfect follow-on course from Roundabout or for beginners who would like to learn one instrument for a full year and graduate from the programme with their Play! Certificate.  Children are  taught in small groups and, by the end of this year-long programme will be able to:

  • play a short piece from memory
  • clap back rhythms
  • read and play back a melody
  • read simple rhythms and notes
  • demonstrate a good knowledge of their chosen instrument.

One of the many joys of learning to play an instrument is getting to play alongside other people. To enable this to happen, a 45 minute orchestra lesson is included as part of the Play! orchestral instrument tuition, or discounted with relevant string or wind instrument lessons at the Conservatoire. You can still join if you don’t attend Play! The orchestra rehearses as two ensemble groups (wind and strings) but regularly joins together for joint rehearsals and performances.

Please note that this is a year-long course. £75 deposit is payable on enrolment in addition to the first term fee, to guarantee your place on the programme and enable us to book tutors accordingly. This non-refundable deposit will be deducted from your third-term fee.
