The course content and timings vary slightly from year to year.
The children are given the opportunity to listen to a demonstration on each of the instruments on offer (violin, viola, cello) before deciding which they would like to learn. We aim for a balance of instruments within each year group, and we do our very best to accommodate the children’s preferences, although there are occasions when it is sometimes not possible to offer a child lessons in their first choice instrument.
We have a large stock of instruments available for hire at a small cost, but children are welcome to use instruments from elsewhere if they prefer.
Fees from January 2017:
Foundation stage - £89 per term (Dalcroze Eurythmics only)
Phase 2 - £320 per term. A reduced rate is available for children who are learning an instrument outside Stringmoves and do not require an individual lesson.
The intention is that no child should be prevented from taking up a place for financial reasons and bursaries are available upon application.
