The String Beans children’s orchestra is for young players who can read some music and have been playing their instrument for a year or more. The ‘Beans’ develop their ensemble technique and performance skills in a friendly environment.

An ensemble is like a mini orchestra. You learn to play together with other instruments who may be playing different parts from you. You learn to follow your conductor and listen to what everyone else is playing and read the music all at the same time! Sounds tricky but it’s great fun! AND you’ll soon discover what that arm waving is all about!
