Are you interested in attending an Intro to Viola Taster Session? Let Jenny know!
More info here: Intro to Viola
Intro to Viola Taster Sessions give you the opportunity to try playing the viola without having to commit to buying an instrument, abandoning your current instrument, or finding a teacher. You will experience the practical side of holding, bowing and fingering the instrument, and get to know the basic principles of playing on different strings whilst reading from the alto clef. You will have gained a sense of what the instrument is like to play by the end of the session, and you may then choose to continue your viola journey!
First Position Strings is a string orchestra for adult beginner string players (approximately Grade 1 - 5). Workshops enable players to experience playing a part within a string ensemble and to practice the skills required for successful ensemble-playing.
More advanced viola players (Grade 5 upwards) may want to consider joining Sheffield Viola Ensemble, which meets Saturdays 10 - 12pm (monthly).
If you are interested in attending a Beginner's Viola Group session but are unsure of your suitability, or just want to know more about it, please contact Jenny:
