Although we would love to find room for everyone who wants to play, this is the situation at the moment:-


  • We take complete beginners at Saturday ELLSO at the start of each September term. If you would like to learn a stringed instrument and have never played before, please do contact us as soon as possible to enquire. Early application is essential as places are limited!


  • Occasionally there are spaces at Saturday ELLSO for more experienced players - these are mostly for Viola and Double bass learners, but it is always worth contacting us to enquire about Violin and Cello.


  • At present there is limited room for a few more viola and double bass players in our Monday Evening IPE group, and a short waiting list for violin and cello spaces. 


  • Each term we have one or two places in ourTuesday Evening  group. Please contact us if you would like us to put your name on the waiting list.


  • We often have spaces for String players (ELLSO Stage 5 or ABRSM Grade 6 upwards) in our Thursday evening Symphony Orchestra (PE), and we are looking to recruit French Horn players and some woodwind.
