Prelude Strings is a fun and friendly string group for young people, adults and families at the Thanet Music Centre. At every session you’ll play a variety of repertoire and arrangements for violin, viola, cello and double bass.
Working with expert tutors, you’ll practise playing as an ensemble and improve your technical skills, while meeting string players of all kinds from your local area!
Whether you’re a new starter who wants to try playing in a group for the first time, an experienced string player who wants to maintain or refresh their skills, or anyone in-between, you’ll find the place for you at Prelude Strings.
