String Tuition

String Department


The String Department offers the opportunity for children and young people, to receive tuition in a wide range of Stringed instruments. We have a team of peripatetic String tutors working in both Primary and Secondary schools. This provision gives children access to tuition on String instruments and it also provides support to the teaching staff in each school. We have a team of specialist String tutors who work at the City of Belfast School of Music in the evenings and weekends delivering individual lessons and group tuition. Our String students enjoy opportunities to rehearse together in various string groups and orchestras, performing throughout the year in a range of venues both home and abroad. The School of Music is pleased to offer a full range of Stringed Instruments for loan to current day and evening students.
