Choose your instrument! (6-8 year olds)

“As I listened and saw how caught up the musicians were in the music, I felt as though there was nothing but music in the world.” (Andrea Bálint, 8th form, following a Choose your Instrument programme)

This is a special programme for kids attending one of our partner schools who are interested in music but have not yet decided which instrument they would like to take up. During the Choose your instrument sessions, some of the orchestra’s musicians introduce schoolchildren between 6 and 8 years of age to their own instruments with a short concert, after which the kids can have a go on them. The happy cries, the roaring laughter, the trombones blown at full force, the squeaking violins and the mercilessly-beaten cymbals all echo the programme’s success.
