Group Orientated Playing
We are a community organisation passionate about sharing the benefits of making music together. Playing in a group supports creative and learning processes, and helps develop confidence and communication skills.
All Open Strings Music groups are tailored to individual needs and abilities with a view to developing these within the group setting. We begin by playing the instruments together, listening to the sounds we can make, and start creating musical pieces together straight away! As confidence develops, participants learn to play and create by ear, and also learn to read music if they wish. Participants decide what pieces to play and how to arrange them, often bringing in their own musical ideas to the group.
