We know it can be a difficult to find a music class that works for your child and inspires them from the offset. That’s why each Term Time Course is lovingly developed by our team of experienced string specialists, taking into consideration every aspect of your child’s development including:
- Technical proficiency on their chosen instrument
- Boosting confidence
- Nurturing musicianship skills such as sight reading, aural and listening ability
- Literacy and mathematical skills
- Key communication skills including teamwork, listening and focus
Each weekly lesson is progressive and begins with our very own “Musicianship Matters” studies – a key part of every Strings Club lesson and exclusive to only us – enabling your child to gain a wider understanding of the ‘nuts and bolts’ of music. Our carefully-crafted lessons focus on six key learning objectives that tie in with the National Curriculum for Music and ensures that each lesson is balanced, versatile and inspires your child.
Our classes are tailored to the age of your child with specific courses for Minis (children aged 4-5) and Sound Start (children aged 6-11) and unlike the standard 20-30 minute lessons which can prove more like a cramming-in session, our lessons last 45 mins – ensuring your child gets the most out of their music education.
Through our very own ‘Minis Awards’ and special partnership with Music Medals, part of the Royal Schools of Music, your child will be able to regularly work towards something exciting and rewarding.
Packed with fun-filled, unmissable musical experiences, our Ofsted registered Holiday Camps for children aged 4 – 11 bring together the very best of music education and childcare to engage and inspire your child – every holiday.
What enables our award-winning Holiday Camps to stand proudly apart from other childcare providers is our passion and dedication in promoting the learning and development of all children in our care.
Each and every activity that takes place at our Holiday Camps focus on our “Four Key Areas of Development” that we believe are crucial in encouraging your child to flourish and reach their potential. We also maintain and exceed the required staff:child ratio.
Mornings – our ‘Learn Together, Play Together’ sessions
- Small group music tuition on an instrument of their choice including ukulele or guitar*
- Ideal introduction for those new to playing an instrument
- Invaluable experience for those budding players (up to Grade 8) in enhancing ensemble performance skills and ensuring regular practice during the school holidays
- Free instrument to take home too
* Children aged 4-5 take part in our Ukulele Minis Classes that work alongside EYFS
Afternoons – our interactive and creative workshops

Each Holiday Camp ends with a grand concert (Friday 3.15pm) – so your child and their new friends can proudly show you what they’ve learnt! By the end of their time with us, your child will have experienced wonderful musical adventures, made new friends, and developed skills for life.
