Ensembles

If you don’t already play or sing in one, why not? They are fun! There are ensembles for most instruments and standards. Ensembles tackle a variety of repertoire, from classical to film music and show tunes.  Playing in an ensemble is also a great way of improving your sight-reading. They only cost £25 per term and you can have a free trial! Orchestra is a free class. Following on from the amazingly successful large ensembles at the Cadogan Hall concert last year, we’re looking at starting a Beginner Band and a Beginner String Ensemble. These would be for any pupils who started last year up to around grade 1. Let us know if you’re interested!
