Silver Strings - it's never too late to learn!

Silver Strings is a course for older people who've always wanted to play a stringed instrument - now's your chance! At Silver Strings, we warm up gently and play in pairs as part of a larger group to make music together.

Everyone over 50 is welcome, regardless of previous experience - no music reading is required, and everyone can choose the material we play together.

We even provide the instruments: choose violin, viola or cello - or try all three!

The course is facilitated by cellist and Goldsmiths-trained music leader Isabel Emerson and run in association with Age UK Brighton & Hove.

Where and when?

Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD: View on Google Maps

Tuesday mornings 9:30-11:30
