Training Orchestra

Our Training Orchestra is a friendly and relaxed group with beginners and intermediate players of all ages playing simpler music.  It’s a great opportunity to experience playing with others – something that many people learning instruments never do.  The Training Orchestra is conducted by Richard Bagnall, our Director of Music, assisted by Liz Wiejak.  Both Richard and Liz are qualified teachers and have lots of experience introducing both children and adults to music.   The wide range of ages in our Training Orchestra is one of the things that make it special.  You often see children helping adults, explaining a music term or how to play a new note…

We select the music played by the Training Orchestra carefully so that someone who is just starting to play an instrument can join in.  If you can’t play the music that we have, we’ll weave an easier part into the arrangement just for you!
