CHILDREN'S STRING ORCHESTRAS

The Junior String Orchestra is designed to take over where the violin, viola and cello classes finish. When children decide, after two years of learning one of these instruments in an EYM group, that they would like to have individual private lessons, they can continue playing in a group by joining the Junior String Orchestra. This would normally be at P5 level.  There is also a Senior String Orchestra, which caters for children of above the level of approximately grade 3 who are in S1 and above.  Both String Orchestras are also open to children of similar levels, who have learned their instruments outwith EYM.  Double bass players are also welcome in the orchestras.  There is no upper age limit, although currently the oldest pupils are 18.

The orchestras are conducted by Anne Giles.
