Why don’t you separate the children into smaller age groups?
At The Strings Club, children are divided into groups depending on their age and developmental stage. Activities are expertly graded and adjusted to the abilities of the group, so you can be confident your child will be able to participate in every part of the session.
Our Strings Club Minis is specifically designed for 4-5 year olds – to encourage children develop life skills as well as their confidence, focus and wellbeing – all aspects that are vital in the first year of school life!
Our Strings Club Sound Start groups accommodate children in Years 1 to 6 who are all encouraged to work towards Music Medals, an award scheme part of The Royal Schools of Music – from Bronze, Copper, Silver and onwards!
The combination of our unique “Musicianship Matters” activities and the learning and performing of fun musical repertoire means that a 9 year old child can enjoy and benefit from a Strings Club lesson just as much as a 6 year old, and vice versa. In fact, we’ve found that a mixed age range increases the opportunities for growth and musical development. Younger children are stretched and stimulated by the rest of the group and older children blossom from the ability to influence activities and gain valuable leadership skills.
