Advice is given on children’s suitability or readiness to play a particular instrument. For the youngest children, only certain instruments will be recommended.
Associated Board and Trinity Guildhall graded examinations can be taken when appropriate. The Centre enters a large number of candidates at regular intervals with excellent results.
