The Strings Club was awarded the Start-Up of the Year award, thanks to the demonstration of on-going success and nationwide expansion that is testament to the high quality of tuition given from term-time courses to holiday camps to in-school sessions.
Karren Brady commented: “The Strings Club’s proven excellence is confirmed by its high level of both referral and repeat business. To date, the company’s success has solely come from focussing on the children and holiday-club industries in and around Birmingham and London, which means that there is scope for expansion into other markets…. The Strings Club has great room for growth. This is also in part thanks to the company’s proven excellence, which is confirmed by the high level of both referral and repeat business.”
James Frost, Marketing Director at Nectar said: “This year we’ve seen a real increase in entry quality and diversity. Businesses vying for a Nectar Business Small Business Award have been more competitive than ever before. The Start-up of the Year prize was awarded to The Strings Club as it is an exceptional new business that demonstrated excellence, innovation and growth potential.

WHAT PARENTS SAY
“My 5 year old is really enjoying the course so far. We are so happy with the wonderful, creative and inspiring teaching.
The atmosphere is very encouraging and fun. I would recommend this club without a doubt.”
“My 6 year old daughter is generally very nervous about trying new things and can be quite anxious however we can’t believe how much her confidence has grown in such a short space of time as a result of these lessons, so much so that her school teacher has also noticed a difference in her confidence in trying new things in school.”
“My 7 year old son has been learning Violin for the past 2 years. His teacher is highly conscientious and takes all efforts to understand individual kid’s needs to pace the speed of the lessons. Pleased to recommend this club to any budding learner who has an attraction for Violin.”
