Minis Awards


Celebrating their achievements from age 4 upwards.

To help your child track their progress through their first year with us we’ve established Minis Awards, enabling your child to celebrate the music skills they have learnt and give them a real sense of achievement.

Exclusive to The Strings Club and designed by our specialist strings team, children will work towards their Minis Award in the summer term. Beginning in the first term with their Caterpillar Minis Ukulele Award, your child will then move onto their Chrysalis Minis Violin Award in the second term and will complete their yearly programme with us by working towards their Butterfly Minis Award. During the third term your child can choose to learn either the violin or ukulele however by then will have a full understanding of both instruments!

Each step in the Minis Awards is designed to help your child grow in skills and confidence and after a year of development they will emerge as fully fledged Butterfly Minis ready to move onto their Sound Start programme with ease.

Minis awards will take place during the summer term within the week 8 lesson. Your child will be asked to prepare for a short assessment based on our Minis syllabus (there is a separate syllabus for each award level and all of this will covered as part of the classes).The assessment is 2-5 minutes long and is made up of the following:
