Brentwood's Orchestras for Young Musicians

Brentwood Beginner Strings


Brentwood Beginner Strings is a fun, elementary introduction to the skills and disciplines of orchestral playing.


The orchestra is for beginner players on all orchestral string instruments (violin, viola, cello and bass) up to eleven years old. If is hoped that the children will progress to Brentwood Junior String Orchestra when they are ready, which, in most cases, is Grade 2 standard for violinists, violists and cellists, and double bass players when they can cope!
