Beginner and Start-Up Events

Taking up an instrument in mid/later life provides a range of health and wellbeing benefits, in addition to being enjoyable in its own right. 

If you'd like to give it a try, don't let anyone tell you you're too old, or that you'll never get anywhere because you didn't learn to read music at school.  Many of our workshop participants are living proof that such remarks are nonsense!

At present, we have no specific taster events or beginner courses scheduled.  Please contact us if you would be interested in something of this nature.

If you are underway with a few notes, we have a few 'very easy' woodwind workshops (flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon only) in our Birnam programme which might suit - visit our dates page for details.  For Autumn 2017, these will be replaced by 'Basic Skills' workshops, which are particularly suitable for those who are new to reading music.  We are happy to consider catering for early stage string, brass and saxophone players too - but please contact us in advance to ensure that we will have appropriate music available.
