Our vision is simple – we want to inspire as many children as possible through music.

We’re Here For Parents Too

Getting Started

We know it’s daunting trying to choose an activity for your child to take part in so we have created a few activities for you to get your child started on their musical journey with us.

First Steps

We’re excited to be helping your child begin their musical journey with us.

We fully understand the array of children’s activities out there. We also know it’s finding the right one for your child that really matters. If you’re looking for an activity for your child that ignites their love of all things music, then you’ve come to the right place….

To make it easier for you, we’ve thought about all of the things that excited me when we were first introduced to music and put together some fun activities to guide you and your child through your first steps. We hope you find them enjoyable.

Igniting your child’s love of music can start with some fun-filled creativity!

Why not download our Activity page, print and ask your child to complete.

Inspiration comes in many different forms and I think there is no better way to first experience the joys of variety than listening to a range of inspirational pieces of music. Learning to play an instrument isn’t just about practising, but also listening to a range of musical styles from classical to folk to world music.

You can download my Recommended Listening pages where I have listed a number of my favourites alongside some fun facts:

Not sure which instrument to start on? Come along to one of our Discovery Days where your child can try out two new instruments and receive two 20 minute lessons for free!

Choosing an instrument for your child to learn can be a difficult and expensive process.

That’s why at our Discovery Days, your child will be able to try out two new instruments of their choice and experience two 20 minute lessons – all for free.

At The Strings Club, we are very lucky to have some of the UK’s best string teachers so we asked them to put together their own personal tips for beginners.

Have a look at our brand new YouTube channel to introduce your child to the violin, ukulele, guitar and cello!

Meet Founder Amy

The Strings Club was founded in 2012 by professional violinist and teacher, Amy Cunningham.

Her aim was to give primary school children an opportunity to discover and engage with music in a rewarding, enriching – but most of all fun way.

The very first Strings Club took place in Camden, London with just 6 budding string players. It was a huge success and a parent at the end of the concert asked, “When is the next one?”

The word had started to spread and since then, Amy has been devoted to creating inspiring musical experiences for children.

Prior to establishing The Strings Club, Amy had trained as a violinist at The University of Birmingham (BMus. Hons) and The University of London (MMus) and had performed amongst many well-known ensembles.

During her training, Amy also worked for numerous recognised music services as well as a classroom music teacher – of which she taught over 250 children per week – from ages 4 – 18.
