Thinking of taking up an orchestral instrument?

If you are thinking of taking up an orchestral instrument and would like to have a chat about which one to choose, or would like to find out about instruments available on loan, please get in touch. If you don’t know where to start, an interesting book to read is “The Right Instrument for your Child” (ignore the child bit!) by Atarah ben Tovim and Douglas Boyd, published by Gollancz. They became interested in why so many people started to learn a particular instrument and gave up, so they considered the physical, mental and emotional elements of playing a variety of instruments.
