Tuning with Confidence at Simply for Strings
Learn how to tune your string instrument safely and effectively, in this fun and informative workshop!
If your or your child's stringed instrument is slipping out of tune as the weather changes or they don't want to wait for their next lesson before they are tuned up again, this is the perfect school holiday activity!
Our Tuning Workshop is hosted by the team of Simply for Strings' talented musicians and educators, where attendees will learn their top tips and tricks for tuning a stringed instrument. Any and all questions can be answered during the session.
Your ticket includes a BEAM Rechargable Clip-on Metronome and Tuner which can be used in your daily practice at home.
Violinists, violists, cellists and double bassists are all welcome! Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss whether this workshop is suitable for your child. We recommend chatting with your stringed instrument teacher about whether or not your child is ready to learn to tune - some teachers recommend learning around the age of 10+.
If you're an adult beginner, this workshop will provide you with some extra guidance and confidence, so you can safely tune your instrument at home.
This workshop is recommended for students aged 10 and above.
