Chamber Ensemble

Junior Orchestra
My son’s motivation for playing cello has gone through the roof since joining the Greenwich Music School orchestra and playing with other children. The teacher/conductor is truly inspiring. He ensures the kids reach their full potential but keeping them on their toes and boosting their confidence.

Tutor - Dan James

Get together with other young musicians and work with professional cellist and conductor Dan James to enjoy learning and playing a wide variety of music, based around established core classical repertoire.

Chamber music often means playing without a conductor - each player has to really listen and work together with all the other players, developing aural skills, leadership and collaboration.

  • Play as part of a group - develop ensemble skills, confidence and teamwork

  • Develop sight-reading skills

  • Play and learn about a variety of music in different styles

  • Meet other young musicians

  • Perform together in our regular concerts

All orchestral/ensemble instruments welcome, including a limited number of spaces for pianists.

Her playing has improved quite dramatically. She has had to up her playing and learn new things. It has been challenging for her but she loves it and has thrived on it. The teacher is really brilliant and keeps the children on their toes.
