Strings Handbook 2020

We are delighted to introduce you to the BHPS Strings Program.


The school has a string program starting with Beginner Strings for anyone keen to learn a string instrument. Beginner string players can learn to play the violin or cello in a group (up to a maximum of 5 students) from a specialist string teacher.

Find out more about the string instrument family via this link.


After one year, the students will have the opportunity to move from this ensemble to Junior Strings dependent upon numbers. Junior Strings will rehearse once a week with a specialist string teacher before school.  In addition, the students are required to have a private lesson with a string teacher who will teach them technical aspects of the instrument.

String players who have a three or more years of experience may be part of a string ensemble if numbers allow and the school wishes to enter them in the Arts Unit concerts.  The introduction of an ensemble will be determined by the school on year by year basis.
