Registration Closed

Information for Spring Workshop

Wellington Branch Committee is delighted to invite families to register for our Spring Workshop. This year we will again be enjoying the wonderful teaching environment at Chilton Saint James School in Lower Hutt.

String tuition is from pre-Twinkles, while piano is from Twinkles and above. All students will participate in both master classes and group classes. Like recent Spring Workshops, there is also an early childhood option available.

In addition to these classes, there will also be optional ensemble classes for violin, viola and cello students. Those students who play 'Two Grenadiers' may enrol for ensemble classes.

It is expected that all children attending will have a supervising parent with them, both for safety reasons and to support them.
