Every level from beginner to accomplished performer is catered for. There are recital classes, which provide the opportunity to give a 15 minute performance of 3 contrasting pieces, concerto and sonata classes and classes for which lighter music can be played. If you have any particular requirement which does not seem to be catered for, please get in touch and we will see how we can best accommodate you. This year we are introducing classes for adult learners who are not studying at a conservatoire and who are rarely given the opportunity to perform.
Please see the Orchestras & Ensembles Section for opportunities for chamber ensembles, orchestras and Family Music Making.
This year all the string classes will be held at Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church, Central Square, NW11 7AG
Prizes and Certificates
There are cash prizes, gift vouchers and trophies to be competed for in the Premier Challenge Cup, Concerto, Sonata and Recital Classes for the various instruments. In other classes there are gold, silver and bronze medals to be won, and every competitor will receive a written adjudication sheet and certificate of participation.
Instrumental Cup will be awarded to the most promising player under 15 years.
