Instrumental Groups

For little ones under age 7, we have First Steps: Family Band – a morning of vocal exploration and singing, movement and dance, musical games and creative music-making for all the family.

Once you can play at least five notes on your instrument, you can join the fun and exciting Training Orchestra for your first taste of orchestral playing.

The next stop on your musical journey is the Bridging Sounds Orchestra, a breakthrough group that fuses world music styles with classical repertoire.

Before you know it, you’re playing with the Newham Youth Orchestra, ready to grace the stage at London’s finest concert halls. The Youth Orchestra plays classical music like Beethoven’s immense 5th Symphony, as well as Hollywood soundtracks arranged for the orchestra.

To join one of our ensembles and groups, please email  for more information or call us on 020 3089 3214.
