Auburn Strings is a beginner – intermediate string programme operating in Sydney and Lithgow, Australia, offering private and buddy lessons in violin, viola, cello and piano, and ensemble experience for string players. The programme is designed to nurture creativity, to foster a passion for music, and to provide a strong technical foundation for further musical study. Private lessons are offered in violin, viola, cello and piano.
Beginners and experienced students of all ages and musical ability are welcome. We have instruments for loan if you just want to give it a go and see if playing strings is for you, and can help you find an instrument if you want to take it further.
If you’ve always wanted to play music and never had the opportunity (or talent, or time, or finances), then this is your chance to have a go at a very rewarding pastime. We believe that music is for everyone, regardless of age, experience, or giftedness. It’s never to early or too late to get involved in music – a very small time commitment each week will have you playing enjoyable tunes in a few months, even if you didn’t think you had much musical ability to begin with. You can choose whether to learn on your own, perform with the string ensemble, do grade exams, or just play for fun.
