All students at Birali Steiner School learn to play a Violin or Cello from Class 3.
Students are taught in small groups that are held every week. Lessons cover technique and repertoire, and children are encouraged to practise at home to progress.
The school offers a junior strings ensemble and strings orchestra. Rehearsals for both the junior strings ensemble and strings orchestra are conducted weekly during school hours.
Benefits of Strings training for children are well researched and include focused concentration, increased mental health and social/emotional enhancement.
