Sheffield Music Hub Strings Project – Making a Musical Start

Do you want your child to develop a life-long love of music?

Do you want a fun educational activity that you can enjoy together, learning the violin at the same time as your child?

Register your interest here for children who attend one of the following schools; Carfield Primary, Hallam Primary, Hunter's Bar Infant, Shooters Grove Primary.

This amazing strings project is open to children and parents in Years 1+2 and offers the opportunity of learning the violin in 15 friendly give-it-a-go sessions at your school. Instruments and resources will be provided throughout the project so pupils can give-it –a-go without any long term commitment of hiring and paying for lessons up front. The scientific and emotional benefits of learning a musical instrument are well known; it helps children develop literacy, numeracy and social skills…but most of all its simply great fun to be part of a collective musical group!!!  This fabulous opportunity could be the initial step on a pathway to learning any musical instrument in the future!

Outline of Strings Project:

  • Children develop a love of collective music making and musical skills through singing, playing musical games and learning the basics of playing a violin.
  • Number of children in group – minimum 6 – maximum of 10.
  • Sessions led by a team of dedicated professional string specialists in different school venues across the city.
  • Parents and carers welcome to join in and learn alongside their child. There will be an expectation that parents will support and help work through the materials and resources at home.

Dates: Project starts w/c 7 January 2019 for all schools except Hunter's Bar Infants who will start when the current sessions finish (march 2019).

Cost:  £95 for all sessions to be paid up front please register your interest online. Your child must attend one of the listed schools to participate.
