    Silver Strings – it’s never too late to learn! @ Brighthelm
    May 2 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

    Silver Strings – it’s never too late to learn!


    Silver Strings is a music session for older people who’ve always wanted to play a stringed instrument. At Silver Strings, we warm up gently and play in pairs as part of a larger group to make music together. Everyone over 50 is welcome, regardless of previous experience – no music reading is necessary, and everyone can choose the material we play.

    Learning an instrument in a group keeps our minds active and our fingers supple – and it’s a lot of fun! Participants say: I get such a sense of achievement (SW), My hands are now more agile (DP), Every week is a highlight! (RW).


    We even provide the instruments: choose violin, viola or cello – or try all three!


    The sessions are run by Open Strings Music in association with Age UK Brighton & Hove, and facilitated by Goldsmiths-trained music leader and professional cellist Isabel Emerson. Silver Strings is kindly supported by the Brighthelm Small Community Grants Scheme.


    Where: The Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD


    When: weekly Tuesdays, 9:30-11:30am


    Cost: first session free – come and try us out! £11/wk (payable monthly) thereafter, inclusive of instrument use
