Stand out from the crowd

Ever thought about trying something a bit different? Are you looking for more opportunities to play? Players who have reached a good level on their chosen instrument often add a second string to their bow for interest and diversity once they are aged 11+.  Perhaps you are a flautist, singer or pianist looking for a new challenge such as playing bassoon, double bass or tuba? We have instruments available now.  Has one of them got your name on it? Please contact the office for more information.
